Danny Ings enjoyed a dream first start for West Ham United as he netted twice in Saturday's impressive 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

In the space of two second-half minutes, the striker showed brilliant instincts to convert from close range for both his goals, lifting the pressure from manager David Moyes as the Hammers climbed out of the bottom three.

Alan Shearer, the Premier League's all-time top scorer and Hall of Fame inductee, was so impressed by Ings' performance that he has included him in his Team of the Week.

Emiliano Martinez (AVL)
"He made a vital early save from Amadou Onana that formed the foundation for Aston Villa's 2-0 win against Everton."

Emerson Royal (TOT)
"His quality has really started to shine through. This was another solid show."

Eric Dier (TOT)
"Didn't put a foot wrong at the back and flicked on for Harry Kane for Tottenham Hotspur's second goal in the 2-0 victory against Chelsea."

Tyrone Mings (AVL)
"Made a vital goalline clearance from Neal Maupay when it was 0-0. Led by example."

Junior Firpo (LEE)
"Only playing because Pascal Struijk was unavailable, he grabbed the opportunity with a crucial goal and clean sheet against Southampton."

Phil Foden (MCI)
"A near-perfect display. Made it look easy as he scored one and made another for Erling Haaland in Manchester City's 4-1 success at AFC Bournemouth."

Declan Rice (WHU)
"Magnificent goal and a driving force in midfield for the Hammers."

Oliver Skipp (TOT)
"How wonderful to see a homegrown player score his first goal in front of his own fans, and what a strike!"

Manor Solomon (FUL)
"What an impact! Stepped off the bench to score for the third match in a row with a belter."

Danny Ings (WHU)
"He showed brilliant instincts for the first of his two goals. Not a bad way to mark your full debut."

Leandro Trossard (ARS)
"Took to his new central role up front with ease and laid on a wonderful pass to Gabriel Martinelli for the winner."

Manager: David Moyes (WHU)
"His decision to start with a back four proved to be an excellent choice as he masterminded West Ham to a dominant victory against Nottingham Forest."
