West Ham - who dominated the entire opening 45 minutes - capitalised on their superiority when the on-loan Portuguese midfielder fired home from close range to put David Moyes' side ahead 11 minutes shy of the interval.
He was unhappy not to play in the 4-1 defeat by Manchester City, and left the bench before the end of Sunday's game after being an unused substitute.
Andy Carroll has been fined by West Ham following what manager David Moyes described as his "unacceptable" and "inexcusable" behaviour against Manchester City.
"It's not done completely yet but you'd have to say it would take a lot for the other teams to get us", he added.
"I think we are getting into the last week now so I've always said that I will never be doing anything 'til after the end of the season and that won't change". Within an hour, it was out there for public consumption, which is also disappointing. I told him he needed to come in the following day and speak to me and the players and he did that. Riyad Mahrez hasn't been performing at all of late so he could be a casualty if the manager wants to make a statement, as the likelihood of the Algerian being at the club next year appear to be pretty slim.

Moyes' off-pitch troubles have played out against the backdrop of his side's precarious position in the league.
"We've moved on", Moyes said at a news conference on Friday.
Especially because West Ham are only three points above the relegation zone.
"People, you would hope, would understand that we came into the job when the club was in the bottom three. If they thought that, well, they couldn't call themselves football supporters".
