Player Ratings : West Ham


Jack Butland – 7

Made some superb saves and showed his lightning reflexes. Could question his passing at times and was lucky to get away with a miss kick.

Glen Johnson – 5

Went forward well but lacked any end product apart from a nice ball into Allen who couldn’t convert. Lost possession a few too many times and was defensively poor.

Ryan Shawcross – 8

A solid showing from the skipper, making some vital blocks and interceptions, please can somebody sort out his contract extension now.

Bruno Martins Indi – 8

I could basically copy and paste the Shawcross paragraph here. Did all his defensive duties to a good standard, both centre backs had a quality game, sign him up.

Marc Muniesa – 7

PIETERS IS DROPPED! About time! For somebody who realistically is not a left back, this was a quality showing. His link up play with Arnie was good, made good progress down the left and his crossing was lovely, a Stoke left back picked out his man in the box, scenes. Looked a little dodgy defensively the odd time but overall he was good enough.

Glenn Whelan – 7

Did what he was there to do, protected to back four well and very comfortable with the ball at his feet.

Geoff Cameron – 6

Protected the back four well just like Glenn but going forward with the ball wasn’t the best, frequently losing possession and breaking down our attacks.

Joe Allen – 7

Caused the West Ham defence a few issues with his runs into the box, had a couple chances but neither could hit the target. Grafted hard as per usual and his passing was good enough.

Xherdan Shaqiri – 7

Put his pace and skill to good use and created a few chances had a chance from close range go wide although the pace of the ball was not in his favour.

Saido Berahino – 6

Had a couple chances, forced a solid save from Adrian and was denied by a quality Reid block. Still no goals in twelve games and he still seems to he lacking that sharpness that a striker needs.

Marko Arnautovic – 7

Created his fair share of chances and was unlucky not to get a goal after a ball from Shaqiri was just that little but too high.

Peter Crouch – 5

Came on for the last twenty minutes and caused West Ham a problem when the ball was swung in although it came to nothing.

Charlie Adam – N/A

Came on for the last ten minutes (for some reason) didn’t do anything really worth mentioning. No rating.
