West Ham 3 Arsenal 1: Player ratings


Fabianski:7 Great reaction save from a Havertz header on 8 mins. Flapped at a cross on 65 mins but no harm done. Comfortable save in the 87th min, Had virtually nothing to do.

Coufal:8 Magnificent work-rate. Provided leadership and drive. Produced a cross in the build-up to West Ham’s third.

Mavropanos:7 Dribbled the length of the pitch to win a corner. Decent display of strength and pace. Might have done slightly better for Arsenal’s consolation.

Aguerd:8 Played a wonderful long pass to set up Kudus’s goal. Looked very sharp. Part of an impressive central defensive partnership.

Emerson:8 Assured and confident performance. Might be our most consistent player.

Alvarez:7 Very sharp and kept busy as Arsenal controlled the ball.

Soucek:7 A workhorse performance. Made a nuisance of himself in both boxes.

Paqueta:8 Missed a glorious chance to put Bowen through. Had very few passing options ahead of him in the first half. Started the second half like a man possessed and displayed some wonderful skills.

Kudus:9 Gifted Arsenal a chance with a risky pass. Very energetic and a big part of the team’s pressing game. Scored an incredible goal to put West Ham 2-0 up.

Bowen:9 His corner forced an own goal from Ben White. Pressed the opposition relentlessly. His thunderous shot was deflected in for the Hammers third.

Benrahma:6 Unable to outpace his marker. Great piece of tracking stopped an Arsenal attack. Excellent work-rate like all of his team-mates.

Ward Prowse: 80th min sub for Benrahma

Kehrer: 88th min sub for the outstanding Kudus
