LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: UNSWORTH SIGNS OFF CARETAKER SPELL WITH IMPRESSIVE VICTORY OVER WEST HAM
The League Managers Association’s five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Everton for their emphatic 4-0 victory against West Ham United on Wednesday 29th November 2017.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Wayne Rooney’s 48-minute hat-trick – capped by a stunning strike from his own half - lit up Goodison Park and propelled Everton to an uplifting and valuable 4-0 victory over West Ham United.
Rooney completed his first Blues treble midway through the second half in the most glorious fashion, when he swooped on goalkeeper Joe Hart’s clearance over the halfway line to send a tracer bullet of a shot into the goal vacated by the Hammers’ number one.
The former England captain had headed home the rebound after his 18th-minute penalty was kept out by Hart to get Everton up and running.
And 10 minutes later, the former England captain sprinted into the box to meet Tom Davies’, low right-wing cross and sweep home.
Ashley Williams crowned David Unsworth’s valedictory night as Toffees boss with a skilful headed goal 12 minutes before the end.
