How we rated the Hammers against Liverpool

ClaretandHugh’s Facebook member Sergey Novysh is this weeks guest ratings expert. A big hand for Sergey -this is no easy job!


Made a couple of good saves, made a couple of average saves, and whilst conceding four could only really have fingers pointed at him for the third.6

Made a few good interceptions, a goal-saving tackle on Salah and produced a few good long-range passes. Had one chance in the opposition box, but miss-kicked the ball. Conceded a dangerous free-kick right in front of the box on Milner. 5

Mixed feelings bout Ginge’s performance. Rock solid in the air, a few decent interceptions and goal-saving actions, but too slow on some occasions. Also ill discipline after receiving yellow (the foul itself was completely logical). 5
Too nervous. Too unreliable. Asked his teammates for forgiveness on few occasions and rightly so. Can’t believe we’ve sold Tomkins to let him play for us. 3
Allowed Salah so score between his legs, but also produced a few good interceptions. Overall performance on par with Zab 5
Definitely needs time to fit in. Shielded the ball well with his body few times and bought some free-kicks. Tried a few long-range passes but didn’t succeed. Defensively been pretty average. 5
Pretty anonymous but a decent interception and pass to Antonio which led to goal. Received a yellow, but that was a bit harsh  6
Good solid performance from Nobes. Helped defence as much as possible, produced few great interceptions and wild (but fair) challenges. Was completely up to it. 7
Played well in the first half, read the game well and improved his link-up play with Arnie. Faded in the second half and made a silly mistake which led to another Liverpool’s goal. 5
Not fit enough. Had one half-chance in the box. Need fit and firing Manu back ASAP. 4
By far our best player.. Incredible save prevented him from scoring a complete belter. Always fighting, running and creating chances for himself and partners. Cheered teammates in the second to go forward, but wasn’t heard. 8
Scored a decent goal after decent run, pressed the opposition for 10 mins. 7
Rice + Hernandez 
No rating.

  1. Seems fair, other than perhaps Ogbonna, who I would’ve given a 5 to. Nice job.

  2. “Can’t believe we’ve sold tomkins to let him play for us.”Really?
    .Yes ogbonna didn’t have a good game today but he’s been pretty solid in most of his games this season.

  3. Stick to playing star wars sergey and fostering meercats lol!
    Noble 7 ??? ogbonna 3??? That vodka must be top dollar mate 😂 .

  4. Don’t give up the day job . Ogbona 3 Noble 7 . What game were you watching . We were completely overrun in midfield where AGAIN Noble is far too slow and cumbersum . Forget this loyal crap he is awful . Ogbona was no worse than the other defenders and has looked good under Moyes recently . We picked old men to do a job against young athletes and got exactly what we deserved . You don’t get young athletes for free Sullivan .

  5. Adrian – 6 at fault for the first and third, but some good saves, not exactly helped out by the defence.
    Zabs – 5
    Collins 6 Our best defender, took a battering but played on through inury (s)
    Ogbonna – 4
    Cresswell – 4 Poor day but he was up against Salah with little help from Evra
    Evra – 4 looked unfit
    Mario – 4 Didn’t seem interested or able
    Noble – 6 Effort and held on to the ball
    Kouyate – 4 lost
    Lanzini – 4 Only ‘coz I like him
    Arnautovic – 7 Best player, but isolated unsupported


    Antonio -6 Good goal, but seemed off the pace
    Chicharito – Didn’t have long enough and the ball barely got over halfway, so unfair to judge
    Rice – 6 Only on for a few minutes and again played out of position. This teenager has played all acroos the back 5 central mid and now left mid…
