Andriy Yarmolenko scored a sensational double for West Ham in only twenty minutes on his first Premier League start for the club against Everton this afternoon.

Yarmolenko’s first came in the 11th minute of the match when Pedro Obiang split Everton’s defence with a ball over the top which star-man Marko Arnautovi? latched onto before squaring the ball to Yarmolenko who tapped home.

Yarmolenko’s goalscoring didn’t stop there and the Ukraine international scored again for the Hammers in the 31st minute of the match with a wonderful solo goal.

England’s first choice goalkeeper Jordan Pickford had a moment to forget when his dreadful pass from goal fell shot and was intercepted by West Ham.

The ball was shifted to Yarmolenko who shimmied past two hopeless Everton defenders before curling the ball into the back of the net.
