Former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown says there is ‘no hope’ for West Ham following last night’s 4-0 defeat to Everton.

A Wayne Rooney hat-trick and a goal from Ashley Williams made for a miserable return to Goodison Park for former Toffees boss David Moyes, who is still yet to win with his new club.

The Hammers remain 18th in the table with only two wins in 13 games after the defeat, however are now only one point adrift of bottom place.

Following the rout on Merseyside, Keown believes that David Moyes’ side will find themselves relegated to the Championship.

“I think they probably are [doomed]. I was quite shocked and stunned by their performance against Everton. There was no cohesion in West Ham’s team.” said Keown.

“Up top, Andre Ayew did not seem to be a focal point. Manuel Lanzini is their best player by far but they could not get him on the ball. He was a passenger in the first half.

“When you look at West Ham and Swansea at the moment, it is difficult to find anyone worse in the Premier League. He [Moyes] has to be given time and he is going to need the upcoming transfer window.

“The problem is that when you look at Sunderland, his previous club, he could not make a difference.”
