West Ham gifted the hosts a penalty in the 7th minute, when Arthur Masuaku inexplicably arm-trapped Matty Phillips’ too-long free kick and Chadli buried the PK to make it 1-0.
Aside from a dead ball here or a missed clearance there — Masuaku had a howler of a first half — West Ham was always searching for an equalizer with little worry going the other way.

The hits kept coming, with James McClean redirected a goal home before halftime, and Chadli adding his second goal after the break.
The Hammers kept pushing, and Foster needed to make a terrific reaction save on James Collins to keep it 4-2 with under 10 to go at the Hawthorns.
