We were reduced to 10 men mid-way through the first half when Younes Kaboul was shown the red card, having been adjudged to be the last defender when he fouled Stewart Downing.
The Hammers capitalised, benefitting from a Harry Kane own goal before Downing grabbed a second on the stroke of half-time.
