West Ham ran out comfortable winners against Cardiff, who had a chance to alter the course of the game through a Joe Ralls penalty, which was saved by Lukasz Fabianski before the break.

And the Hammers were rampant after it, with goals from Lucas Perez (two) and Michail Antonio putting the hosts 3-0 ahead before Josh Murphy's strike blotted their clean sheet.
