West Ham earned a crucial three points in their Premier League match against Nottingham Forest to end a run of three straight league defeats.

David Moyes’ side started the match in fine fashion as Lucas Paqueta slotted home to send them ahead three minutes into the game but Forest responded well through Taiwo Awoniyi’s first half equaliser.

The game threatened to spiral away from the Hammers as Anthony Elanga sent Forest ahead just after the hour mark but Jarrod Bowen levelled the game with a fine header two minutes later.

The deciding goal came two minutes from the end as Tomas Soucek turned the ball into the back of the net and secured the win for West Ham.

Kudus has been fantastic on the right. He drives inside from the wing and feeds a pass into the path of Bowen. The England international looks to return possession to his team-mate, but the ball is intercepted. Emerson then gives away a cheap foul.

Kudus takes the ball down brilliantly on the right and plays a pass inside to Ward-Prowse, who sees his low shot deflect wide. However, nothing comes from the following corner. Forest are about to make a couple of changes.

Forest have a chance to put the ball in the box after winning a free-kick on the left. However. Gibbs-White's cross is poor and West Ham come forward.

BAR! West Ham should have the lead for a second time. Aina directs Alvarez's direct pass straight into the path of Soucek, who crashes the bar with a first-time effort. Cooper will be shocked at the way the game has got away from Forest in the last few minutes.

Ward-Prowse wins possession and West Ham come forward on the counter. Paqueta finds Bowen, who holds up the ball before spinning past Murillo. The Forest defender pulls him back before winning it back. There is shock around the stadium that a foul is not given against the defender.
