EPL Round Up: Emenike, Moses set new record with West Ham


The Nigerian duo of Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses as well as their West Ham teammates have set a new record with their club after their big win over West Brom on Saturday.

The victory (0-3) which was the biggest among the games already decided on Saturday ensured that West Ham took their points tally to 59-two more than their best ever haul of 57 points in 1989

Emenike and Moses were part of the show as the Hammers stunned West Brom 0-3 away from home.

While Emenike came in as a 66th substitute for Diafra Sakho, Victor Moses waited till the 88th minute before coming in for Dimtri Payet.

Two goals from Mark Noble helped the Hammers to the fantastic win that has seen them move into fifth place in the Premier League table, although Manchester United could regain that spot on Sunday with a positive result against Leicester City.

With two more games still to be stayed, Moses and Emenike as well as their West Ham teammates have a very good chance on improving on the record already set.
