While it might seem the season is over for 21 teams, certain teams have decided to continue playing and enjoying themselves on the pitch. One such team is West Ham. They produced a wonderful performance of passing and endeavor that somewhat confused a Crystal Palace who have found their feet in this division. And it was Peter’s who supplied some sublime skill to give West Ham the lead, with a Hurst rocket shot outside the box to round out the scoring.

Peters surrounded by two defenders.

Peters slips past those two defenders and continues forward.

He then steps to the right and beats another defender.

With delicate skill Peter is now facing the keeper.

And with the calmness of a surgeon Peters opens the scoring for West Ham.
