West Ham will again point to poor officiating costing them three points this weekend, but a poor second half performance saw them clinging onto an eventual 1-1 finish.

Player Ratings

Lukasz Fabianski
Made good saves, hard done by for the goal, but also nothing that was too excellent either.


Ryan Fredericks
Did well against Zaha when it was all about pace, but his positioning was not wonderful and often held a poor line. Made 5 tackles, but still didn?EUR(TM)t feel secure and all the big second half chances down his side.


Aaron Cresswell
Maybe generous, but he adds such impetus to the left side and made vital tackles and clearances at the back.


Issa Diop
Didn?EUR(TM)t command down the right of the defence with Fredericks, but stood strong in the middle with clearances, blocks and interceptions.


Angelo Ogbonna
Nine clearances, three blocked shots. He can be physically dominant when he wants to be.


Declan Rice
Other than a few forward surges, a very low key contribution. Palace wanted to use the pace out wide and led to little for Rice to patrol centrally.


Mark Noble
Calm in the middle, good penalty, should have seen Milivojevic sent off after drawing that foul. 90% pass completion from 48 passes and in a hectic game.


Felipe Anderson
Did struggle a little second half, but ran the first. Most tackles on the pitch (seven), but his magic was the way he dictated the West Ham attack. Can control a ball on the run with such nonchalant ease.


Robert Snodgrass
Energy again needed, and one excellent chase back to halt a counter that looked deadly. Should have scored.


Michail Antonio
Confidence is definitely back. Won the penalty, bothered their fullbacks with direct running, worked up and down the channel.


Javier Hernandez
Worked hard and won some freekicks, but fluffed his big chance.



Substitutes

Marko Arnautovic
(Replaced Hernandez) Didn?EUR(TM)t really do anything. Not entirely his fault, there was no desire to attack.


Pedro Obiang
(Replaced Antonio) Made some tackles and got about. Little else he could do.


Pablo Zabaleta
(Replaced Fredericks) On for only a few minutes, he did one particular bit of one-on-one defending against Zaha that was experienced and brilliant.


Adrian San Miguel del Castillo
Did not play.


Arthur Masuaku
Did not play.


Grady Diangana
Did not play.


Andy Carroll
Did not play.
