West Ham 4 Brentford 2:Player Ratings


West Ham 4 Brentford 2

Areola:7 Should have done better for Maupay’s opener. Great reaction save on 65 mins. Incredible save on 95 mins.

Coufal:8 Created Bowen’s second. One of his best performances going forward.

Mavropanos:9 Seemed to enjoy his aeriel battles. Immense. Will take some moving now.

Zouma:6 Bad defending as Brentford made in 2-1. Not great for their second goal either.

Emerson:9 Good assist for the Hammers opener. Struggled with Lewis Potter. Scored a humdinger for West Ham’s 4th and blocked on the line in injury time.

Alvarez:8 Not his busiest game which is testament to the shift put in by Soucek & JWP. Provided excellent cover to the defence.

Ward Prowse:7 Played a role in the first goal and covered a lot of ground. Dangerous set-piece deliveries.

Soucek:8 Blazed over the bar from 6 yards early in the game. Looked fit and energetic, heavily involved.

Paqueta:8 Shot high & handsome after 15 mins. Links so well with Emerson and great at drawing fouls. His presence gave the whole team a lift.

Kudus:8 Started brightly like all of the West Ham team. Created Bowen and West Ham’s third.

Bowen:10 Opened the scoring on 4 mins and scored a second 2 mins later. Got the hat trick with a deft header.

Bowen scored twice for West Ham in the first half against Brentford in the Premier League
