West Ham 2, Portsmouth 0

Not a great performance, but a two-nil victory against relegation rivals Portsmouth isn't to be sniffed at. With more clincal finishing, it could have been 4-0, as both Collison and Behrami squandered decent chances.
True, Portsmouth weren't great, but there was a spell during the first 30 minutes of the second half where they threatened the West Ham goal, and on another day, might have scored. Bad thing: Mark Noble went off injured. Good things: Scott Parker was immense again, Kovac had a good game (and scored a goal) and the defence looked more solid than it has in recent weeks. So, all West Ham fans must be hoping that the bankrupt bank which owns West Ham doesn't feel the need to raise funds by selling Parker or Green in January.
