Report and highlights from 5.15pm as Felipe Anderson also nets stunner
Last Updated: 08/12/18 5:04pm
Robert Snodgrass’ first goal for West Ham in the Premier League sparked a second-half comeback which saw them beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at the London Stadium.
Palace held a half-time lead thanks to James McArthur’s six-yard finish after West Ham’s defence switched off from a sixth-minute free-kick.
But three minutes after half-time, Snodgrass netted his first league goal for the Hammers since joining in January 2017 when he curled Mamadou Sakho’s headed clearance inside the near post from the edge of the box.
Two goals in three minutes then looked to have sealed three points, with Javier Hernandez turning in the rebound from Felipe Anderson’s free-kick (62), before the Brazilian secured a goal for himself with a stunning curled effort from the edge of the box (65).
Substitute Jeffrey Schlupp nodded in from a corner to set up a grandstand finish (76), but it never emerged as West Ham saw out a third straight league win for the first time since December 2016.
