LONDON (AP) – Aided by another missed Fulham penalty, Everton snapped a three-game Premier League losing streak with a 3-2 win on Sunday thanks to a Dominic Calvert-Lewin double.
Two after Ademola Lookman missed a definition to the “Panenka” in the discounts of visit to West Ham, Ivan Cavaleiro was in charge of the maximum penalty. But the Portuguese striker slipped while attempting his shot and sent it over the crossbar.
Everton were leading 3-1 at the time, and while Fulham put strain on the final stretch of the match with Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s goal in the 70th minute, the visitors managed to hold out after defeats to Southampton, Newcastle and Manchester United.
Calvert-Lewin established himself as the season’s top scorer by reaching 10 wins. He did so with a goal at 42 seconds and then at 29 minutes after Bobby De Cordova-Reid’s temporary draw.
Abdoulaye Doucoure headed a Lucas Digné cross for his first goal for Everton that made it 3-1 for Everton in the 35th.
Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti’s team started the season with four successive victories, but failed to win in their last four games.
Sheffield United are still unable to triumph in the Premier this season after succumbing 1-0 to West Ham, courtesy of Sebastien Haller’s goal in the second half.
With eight defeats in nine games, Sheffield United is at the bottom of the table. It is a huge contrast to last season, when they were fighting to the last to qualify for the European cups.
West Ham climbed to eighth with their fourth win of the season.
