West Ham ended a disappointing home league campaign with a comfortable victory against relegation favourites Leeds United.

Freed from the shackles of being a candidate for relegation themselves, West Ham were unrecognisable from the team which had struggled to score for much of the season and thoroughly deserved the 3-1 victory.

And it was perhaps particularly fitting that two of the goals were scored by Declan Rice and second half substitute Manuel Lanzini, both of whom are widely tipped to move on to pastured new this summer.

United's other goal was scored by Jarrod Bowen, whose 72nd minute effort put West Ham ahead for the first time in the game.
