David Moyes hailed Marko Arnautovic's performance as 'unplayable' after West Ham ended their season on a high with a 3-1 win over Everton at the London Stadium.
Arnautovic was named the club's player of the year due to the quality of his performances during his debut season and he was influential once more against Everton.
The Austrian was involved in West Ham's first goal scored by Manuel Lanzini and then got on the scoresheet himself with a brilliant strike just beyond the hour mark.
A second goal from Lanzini late on restored West Ham's two-goal advantage after Oumar Niasse had struck for Everton to ensure that West Ham won the game and finished 13th in the table.
Speaking post-match, Moyes said: "What a great performance. It was a good game, the players enjoyed it, I enjoyed watching it and we scored good goals," he said.
"Our play all day was really good, in recent weeks our form has been really good, our football has improved, the players have got better, so that's good.
"Look at times he [Arnautovic] can be unplayable. He had other opportunities, he was in on the keeper. When we came in we were in the bottom three and we've ended up in 13th so I would have taken that all day long, that's for sure."
West Ham's season reached a nadir in March when a 3-0 home defeat to Burnley was marred by pitch invasions and protests in the stands.
The club's decision to head to Miami for a five-day warm weather training camp a few days later was criticised by some but Moyes insisted that it was the turning point in their season.
"Sometimes you've got to pat yourselves on the back because others don't! If you'd have given me this at the start and a performance like we gave today I'd be delighted," he said.
"I think for me the decision to go to Miami was a massive turnaround for us, I think we've only lost two games since we came back.
"It showed the togetherness and that the players were making the right decisions and right choices, sometimes you've got to trust the managers and let them get on with it.
"I'll speak with the club, things haven't changed over the next few days and whatnot we'll have the chance to speak but everything is the same as it was."
