Rooney and Everton demolish West Ham

Nov 29, 2017 - 1:00 PM Wayne Rooney scored from his own half to haunt his former manager David Moyes with a first hat-trick for Everton, in their 4-0 win over West Ham in the English Premier League.

With Sam Allardyce watching from the stands ahead of his expected appointment as Everton manager, Rooney found the net for the first time in five games by heading in on the rebound in the 18th minute after his penalty was saved by Joe Hart.

Rooney struck again at the near post and piled more misery on Moyes by capitalising on a scrambled clearance from Hart and blasting the ball past his former England teammate from inside his own half.

Ashley Williams completed the rout by heading home from a corner after conceding a penalty for a foul on Diafra Sakho when the score was 2-0, but Jordan Pickford came to the rescue by turning away Manuel Lanzini's spot-kick.

Caretaker manager David Unsworth was in charge of Everton for the fixture at Goodison Park.

Former England and West Ham boss Allardyce, 63, was at Everton to finalise terms on becoming their new manager.

He will replace Dutchman Ronald Koeman who was sacked last month after a poor start to the season.
