Everton, now 17th in the table, have won just one of the seven games under Unsworth, losing five, and fan opinion turned sharply with their last two outings - a 5-1 home loss to Atalanta and a 4-1 reverse at Southampton. It's one of, if not, the best goal I've scored.
West Ham were poor throughout the match, registering their first shot at Jordan Pickford's goal in the 52 minute, although they were given a lifeline when they were awarded their own spot kick.
Though that goal failed to open the game, Everton doubled their lead ten minutes later.
"The most important fact is to win games, that's the bottom line and Tony does that very well", said Pardew, when asked if he would listen to calls for a change in style of play at West Brom.
In what is turning out to be a jolly good day for Proper Football Men™ that Know The League™, it's being reported that Sam Allardyce has agreed to take over at Everton, a little over two weeks after initial talks between the two parties dwindled to nothing.
Manuel Lanzini had his effort saved by the former Sunderland goalkeeper and Everton made sure the visitors did not have another opportunity to get back into the game when Rooney completed his hat-trick with a sensational strike from inside his own half.
Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick and Ashley Williams netted a great header, as Everton picked up a 4-0 victory over David Moyes' side.
The final, perhaps compulsory, act of the night saw Rooney receive a standing ovation as he was brought off to be replaced by Beni Baningime with five minutes remaining, having helped his side climb five points clear of West Ham in the final relegation place.
