West Ham Player ratings v Everton


West Ham Player ratings v Everton

Areola: Very little to do beyond one truly magnificent save which was worth an 8 all on its own . Helpless for the goal 8

Coufal: Did little wrong but really had little impact on the game 5

Aguerd: Mixed bag from the central defender with some decent distribution among some errors Maybe harsh but looked as though he might have done better for the goal 5

Cresswell: Looked ring rusty after so long out 4

Zouma: Fairly composed on what was essentially a quiet afternoon 6

Alvarez: A yellow card which means a suspension and a mediocre game which saw him try his luck from a ridiculous distance on one occasion, and fail to win his share of the ball 5

Ward-Prowse: By-passed a bit too often and the set pieces weren’t the strongest we have seen in the past 5

Paqueta: All the usual tricks but one horrible mistake which could have led to a goal plus a yellow card for complaining which will now see him suspended 5

Kudus: Star of the show such as it was with plenty of battling and huigh energy whilst usually finding his man with some decent passes 8

Bowen: Might have had a couple of goals but was just unable to get on the end of a couple of crosses. Usual energetic performance. 7

Antonio: Very, very poor and produced nothing really to speak of at all 2


Benrahma: You can’t fault the lad’s heart. Tried really hard but once again nit a lot on the end of all the running and dribbling 6

Soucek: Tried hard to get forward and make things happen 6

Ings: On for five minutes which was pretty pointless

    Did anyone notice we kept playing the ball out of defence. Aerola did not seem willing to kick the ball down the pitch, making it easier for Everton to block our moves.

    The look on Antonio’s face when taken off summed up to me that he had no faith in Moyes what so ever.. Pacqueta had a very almost angry look on his face even at the start of the Match. Could it be that Players are bored with the same old formation and being played out of position.

    Surely we can do better than Antonio up top? Time to try Bowen with Kudus on the right.
