West Ham 5 Freiburg 0: Every Iron player rated

Fabianski Mr Reliable , showed his experience and not particularly troubled 8

Coufal A couple of errors but put in his usual shift and nearly scored his first ever goal 7
Cresswell Rolled back the years with a typically competent performance and a pile driver finish to score his first goal since there was a Queen on the throne – April 2022! 8
Hammers season may get worse with news that both Kudus and Paqueta may leave

Mavropanos Steady in defence and a confident performance 7

Zouma His best game for a good while, he is definitely suited to the counter attack, but still not the most agile on the field 6
Álvarez A few lung busting runs, but picking up a yellow card leaves him ineligible for the next game 6
Bowen On fire! Showed why he is in the England squad 8
Soucek Strong and reliable, relished the physicality of the game 7

Lucas Paquetá   What would we do without him? A wonderful poacher’s goal and the heartbeat of the side. Subbed on the hour presumably to save him for the weekend 8

Kudus Perhaps the unsung hero, despite missing a golden opportunity -constantly offering a threat and  ran the length of the pitch to score the fourth and put the icing on the cake with the 5th  9
Antonio A selfless performance with their defenders constantly troubled 7
JWP Came on for Paqueta, somewhat anonymous 6
Johnson Came on for Antonio, Moyes keeping it safe
Phillips on for Alvarez n/a
Earthey First game for the first team, and replaced Bowen n/a
Ings On for kudos n/a
