English Premier League Everton v West Ham United 16 September 2018

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini denied suggestions Lucas Perez refused to come on as a substitute in Sunday's 3-1 win at Everton.

Perez has made only two substitute appearances for West Ham since joining from Arsenal.

Cenk Tosun had the first opportunity to level matters for the Toffees in 24th minute with a free header at the back post but his effort lacked power as West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski gathered easily.

Yarmolenko scored his second goal of the game with a spectacular shot from the edge of the box on the half hour mark to double West Ham's lead.

Silva's men kept going forward looking to salvage some pride towards the end as the visitors were already out of sight but they were not sharp enough as the score remained 3-1.

"When [Marko] Arnautovic was injured, I called him because he was making his warm-up, but when he was back sitting on the bench and [Michail] Antonio was working I called him because he was ready".

West Ham haven't exactly had the start to their season that they would have expected.

Mark Noble revealed that some "home truths" were delivered to the West Ham United players during a team meeting last week.

He made an immediate impact, guiding the ball into the net after Arnautovic controlled a hard pass before laying the ball across.

Andriy Yarmolenko put West Ham in command with two goals inside the first 31 minutes on his first Premier League start, with the Ukraine worldwide taking time to settle in England prior to his double at Goodison Park.

"Everyone did an unbelievable job today", Arnautovic said.

Silva can now be found at 25/1 to be the first Premier League manager to lose his job this season.
