London team of the week includes 5 Hammers


The first London team of the week of 2016, compiled by has been published  in the London Evening Standard and it includes five Hammers.

On West Ham the Standard says

“Unquestionably the star performers of the weekend were West Ham, a fact reflected by the presence of five of Slaven Bilic’s side in our selection. Mark Noble is the capital’s well-deserved star man with a remarkable score of 9.22. That can be little surprise after a display that saw the captain make five crucial tackles and provide an assist for Andy Carroll.

Angelo Ogbonna was the star Hammer in a dominant defence that, for the second meeting in a row, held Liverpool’s attacking riches goalless and earns another spot in our team of the week after appearing in the final edition of 2015.

Cheikhou Kouyate and goalscorer Michail Antonio round off the Boleyn Ground representatives in our side to cap off a dream weekend for West Ham.”
