Player Ratings

Lucasz Fabianski
Not at fault for any of the goals, brave as can be to stop Doherty, made some good saves. Hard to give above a 6 when conceding three goals. Easily the best in West Ham colours.


Pablo Zabaleta
Didn?EUR(TM)t get a lot wrong, excellent intervention saved a certain goal, but part of a shocking defence and offered nothing going forward.


Arthur Masuaku
He was often left exposed, but dealt with nothing in a good way.


Issa Diop
Bettered by Jimenez and Jota all game. Little he could do for the last goal, but he didn?EUR(TM)t make it harder either.


Angelo Ogbonna
The left side was all at sea today. Not wildly bad, but not good.


Declan Rice
A couple interceptions, but Jota was able to play in between midfield and defence far too easily and Rice is usually patrolling in there.


Mark Noble
Didn?EUR(TM)t influence the game, although the manager?EUR(TM)s selection made it hard in midfield.


Felipe Anderson
As bad a performance as he?EUR(TM)s had for some time. Didn?EUR(TM)t influence the game, didn?EUR(TM)t work back defensively. Didn?EUR(TM)t do anything. Looked like his early season performances.


Robert Snodgrass
When he?EUR(TM)s an auxiliary central midfielder, his workrate and tenacity is useful. But he is not an effective attacking wide player any longer. 4-4-2 doesn?EUR(TM)t help him.


Michail Antonio
He does try, and he is working hard up front. Cumbersome as ever, we had no shots on target - doesn?EUR(TM)t suggest our two forwards are getting much praise.


Marko Arnautovic
Anonymous. He?EUR(TM)s going to be need to be a lot better a lot sooner if he wants the fans to ignore what others are saying and concentrate on the football. Has to lead the line, he?EUR(TM)s not as a good when he plays deep, even if he thinks he is.



Substitutes

Andy Carroll
(Replaced Snodgrass) Had no effect on the game whatsoever.


Pedro Obiang
(Replaced Noble) Mainy for a couple of good sliding tackles and a shot that, if not blocked by our own player, was the best we?EUR(TM)d had all night.


Javier Hernandez
(Replaced Arnautovic) Looked close to coming on in goal, where at least he?EUR(TM)d have touched the ball picking it out of the net. Valencia can have him.


Adrian San Miguel del Castillo
Did not play.


Pablo Zabaleta
Did not play.


Fabian Balbuena
Did not play.


Pedro Obiang
Did not play.
