Early Jarvis goal helps Hammers sink QPR

Published Add your comment

QPR's alarming winless start to the season continued on Monday night as Matt Jarvis' early goal set West Ham on course for a comfortable 2-1 victory in west London.

The £11million summer acquisition headed home his first goal for the Hammers after three minutes. QPR were on the backfoot throughout a first half in which Ricardo Vaz Te doubled the visitors' advantage. Adel Taarabt clawed a goal back for QPR with a superb long-range effort moments after his second-half introduction.

Any comeback was thwarted when fellow substitute Samba Diakite was sent off. Referee Mark Clattenburg handed out 11 bookings in all and eight of those went to players in claret and blue.
