This was the night when West Ham’s complacency caught up with them. A rampant Newcastle deserved this handsome victory at a mutinous London Stadium, if only because they succeeded in getting the basics right. Eddie Howe’s impressive side did not even have to work hard for their goals and, as the match drew to a close, it was hard to know what more West Ham need to see before accepting that David Moyes’s time is up.
Out of the bottom three on goal difference, West Ham have ignored the obvious for too long and are paying for their failure to act. This was a humiliation for Moyes. The Scot watched helplessly as his side were given a lesson in focus by opponents cantering towards the Champions League after their fourth consecutive win.
