A Sebastien Haller brace and a late Felipe Anderson strike gave West Ham a timely lift with their first win of the season after a chaotic couple of weeks.

West Ham were finding space and playing with confidence, though Charlton weren’t for lying down as Jonny Williams fired an effort at Darren Randolph, who made a mess of the near post save but managed to only concede a corner.

Josh Cullen - making his first West Ham start since April 2018 against the side where he spent the last two seasons on loan - was settling well at the base of midfield, always alive and ready to smother Charlton breaks before looking for progressive, impressive passes from deep to get the Hammers moving.

West Ham were holding on, Charlton unable to capitalise on any of the chances they created before the hosts regained a touch of composure once more.

West Ham were far from comfortable with their two goal cushion, Aneke bullying Issa Diop before Balbuena almost turned a header behind into his own net.
