Ratings 2: The Irons at Leeds

Gonzo gives his marks

 

Fabianski:7 No blame for Leeds opener. Made a world class save on 13 mins.

Coufal:6 Battled well and saw off his opposite number James.

Zouma:7 Robust and physical. Seemed to have license to move into midfield.

Ogbonna:6 Struggled with the pace of Leeds counter attack. Reads the game so well.

Cresswell:5 Given the thankless task of marking Rafinha. Will be pleased to see the back of the Brazilian attacker.

Rice:7 Seemed frustrated with lack of support and movement in midfield. Grew into the game and set up Antonio with a great pass.

Soucek:7 At fault for Leeds opener with a sloppy pass. Looked tired at times. Scored only for it to be disallowed. Got better as the game progressed.

Fornals:6 Worked hard. Missed a wonderful opportunity to make it 1-1 just before half time.

Benrahma:8 Sharp and bright. Always looking to impact the game. Made a goal saving interception.

Bowen:8 Does he ever get tired? Impressive endeavor as always. His deflected shot resulted in West Ham’s equaliser.

Antonio:9 Never stopped running or battling. A couple of long range efforts dragged wide but then scored a wonderful winner.

Subs

Vlasic: 15 mins on the pitch, not really involved enough to rate accurately.
