Manchester United 3 West Ham 0 Player ratings


Manchester United 3 West Ham 0

Areola:6 Excellent save on 14 mins after he’d been clattered by Zouma.

Coufal:5 Got into some great positions but his delivery can be frustrating.

Zouma:6 Good tackle on 22 mins, always seems to be playing with an injury.

Aguerd:6 Looked fit and formed a decent partnership with Emerson. Ball deflected off Aguerd for Man U’s second early after the break,

Emerson:6 Impressive opening to the game, defended and attacked well. Made a wonderful tackle to intercept Maguire but fluffed his lines from six yards out whilst it was still 1-0. Man U scored from their resulting attack.

Manchester United 3 West Ham 0 :Emerson was heavily involved.

Alvarez:7 The glue which hold the midfield together.

Soucek:5 Had a decent shot deflected by Maguire. Took a decent yellow card to thwart an attack.

Ward Prowse:6 Miscommunication with Soucek helped Man U in their opener. Pressed really well but no joy from set pieces despite numerous opportunities.

Johnson:7 Started on the right wing and looked bright. West Ham’s biggest attacking threat in the first half.

Kudus:6 Seemed to enjoy his new left wing role as The Hammers started brightly. Switched wings with Johnson in the second half.

Bowen:5 Not involved until he moved onto the wing in search of action. Never really stood a chance, not physical enough to play as a lone striker. Delayed shooting on his one clear chance.


Fabianski: Replaced Areola at half-time, presumably following his collision with Zouma.

Cornet: Replaced Soucek on 71 mins. Little he could do as the home team dominated the game in the second half.

Phillips: On for Coufal. Poor Phillips lost the ball in midfield, resulting in the oppositions third. Has had a horrible start to his Hammers career.
