West Ham 1 Olympiacos 0

Fabianski:5 Nothing to do with zero shots on target. Still managed to drop at catch which was fortunately deemed offside.

Coufal:6 Some better crossing from Coufal tonight. Made a crucial clearance late in the first half.

Mavropanos:6 Mostly solid but a silly decision almost cost a goal. Made a great run forward to earn a corner. Like Aguerd, should have scored.

Aguerd:7 His long range passing was on full display. A real threat from corners but should have scored at least once.

Aguerd-West Ham-Olympiacos-Europa League

West Ham 1 Olympiacos 0: rises to meet another Ward Prowse corner

Emerson:6 Wonderful solo run won Hammers a freekick in a dangerous area. Left his man unmarked who hit the post.

Alvarez:6 Harshly yellow carded for a clean and well timed tackle.

Ward Prowse:7 Some of his passing in the first half was very poor but delivered the corners to Aguerd’s head with regularity.  Had a chance following a cut back from Bowen. Played the pass of the match with a chipped ball for Paqueta to score.

Paqueta:7 Played centrally and in a very advanced position. Dictated West Ham’s play with his wide range of skills in the first half. Matched the teams lethargy with an abysmal start to the second period. Started the move which saw him score on 74 mins.

Alvarez was unlucky to be carded

Kudus:5 Also the victim of incredibly poor refereeing. Struggled to really impact the game in the first half.

Benrahma:6 Awful decision to shoot when Bowen was free in the box. Forced an excellent save om 12 mins. Tested the keeper again on 31 mins as West Ham tried to find a way through.

Bowen:6 Looked sharp but struggled to impose himself on the Olympiacos central defenders. Too many long balls played in to him.

Substitutes

Soucek: 79 min sub for Alvarez.

Cornet: 83rd min sub for Benrahma

Mubama: 89 mins for Kudus
