Gary Lineker mocks Sir Lindsay Hoyle in instant reaction to Everton 1-0 win v West Ham United
Gary Lineker has mocked politician Sir Lindsay Hoyle in his reaction to Everton winning for the first time in the Premier League this season against West Ham on Sunday.
Neal Maupay’s first goal for the Blues was enough to secure Frank Lampard’s side all three points at Goodison as they piled more misery on David Moyes’ struggling West Ham.
With the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II to be held on Monday (19 September), Hoyle, who is Speaker of the House of Commons, has been criticised for saying it’s the “most important event the world will ever see“.
Lineker has mocked the politician in relation to Everton’s win.
“Three points for Everton. The most important victory the world will ever see,” said Lineker via his personal Twitter account on Sunday after the game (18 September).
It was only 1-0 but it was a mammoth three points for Everton, who have deserved a win in the Premier League way before they played against West Ham.
Moyes’ men, if we’re honest, we’re awful but Everton were by far the better side and deserved the victory.
It was great to see Maupay getting on the scoresheet for the first time as an Evertonian but it was also amazing to watch Lampard’s summer signings do so well.
Conor Coady and James Tarkowski were incredible in the defence while Nathan Patterson, Alex Iwobi and Demarai Gray, who was named as the man of the match by Jamie Carragher, also shone.
Asmir Begovic did well in goals in Jordan Pickford’s absence too, which is a huge shock based on how he’s played for us previously.
Lampard’s taken a lot of pressure off his and his players’ shoulders by getting that win ahead of the international break, where confidence will no doubt be higher now.
West Ham, on the other hand, look to be in serious trouble.
Could ex-Blues boss Moyes be out of a job soon?
