Fulham 5 West Ham 0: Player ratings

Fulham 5 West Ham 0

Fabianski:5 On hand to stop a tame Willian shot early in the game. Made a good save from Iwobi but Fulham scored their second from the rebound. Made a save just before half time to stop Fulham going in 4-0 up.

Coufal:3 Unlucky to score an own goal when trying to defend. Never stopped trying despite being outclassed but his passing was awful.

Zouma:4 Excellent positioning early in the game but out-jumped for Fulham’s third. Embarrassed by Wilson in the second half.

Fulham 5 West Ham 0: Zouma gets outjumped for Fulham’s third

Aguerd:2 Left Cresswell with two men to mark for the goal. Struggled to deal with Iwobi. Really poor. Almost scored a 6th for Fulahm.

Cresswell:3 Looked fitter than on his last outing but struggled with Iwobi and Jimenez movement. Emerson has rarely looked better.

Ward Prowse:4 Produced a stinging long-range freekick early on. Chasing shadows with Soucek in midfield. Almost scored from a corner.

Soucek:2 Lost out in his battle with with the Fulham midfield. Made Cairney look like Luka Modric.

Paqueta:4 Deployed centrally. His full range of passing was on display early in the game but his influence dropped as West Ham retreated into their shell.

Fornals:2 Combined well with Paqueta at the beginning of the game but became anonymous.

Kudus:3 So strong but had no influence on the game.

Bowen:6 Initially struggled with Bassey’s strength. Had a chance to score with his weaker foot. Had a shot in the second half but again fell to his weaker foot. Never stopped trying.

Substitutes:

Mavropanos:5 45th min sub for Cresswell as Moyes switched players and tactics in an effort of reverse a 3-0 deficit. Not great but the game was over by the time the cavalry arrived.

Emerson:5 45th min sub Fornals. One of the few who actually seemed to be up for the fight. Perhaps miscommunication with Aguerd for Fulham’s 4th.

Mubama:4 63rd min sun for Kudus. His and Benni’s energy helped provide some rest to the constant Fulham attack. Had a chance but snatched at it. .

Ogbonna:4 63rd min sub for Zouma. Fulham’s 5th was a sad sight to see for such a distinguished servant.

Benrahma:5 63rd min sub for Paqueta. Had a good chance in front of goal following good work from Bowen. Lofted a shot that Owen Farrell would have been proud of.

  1. Didn’t see the game just followed commentary. Same as usual less possession out passed, less shots. This thrashing well overdue!
