Player Ratings

Joe Hart
Despite making a few decent saves, when letting in four goals a goalkeeper is always partially at fault.

Pablo Zabaleta
A true warrior, blocked and cleared absolutely everything that came his way in the first half and the early stages of the second. Yet his booking stopped him from being aggresive and as a result could do nothing to stop the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Arthur Masuaku
Showed signs of what we saw at the back end of last season with positive attacking play, but unfortunately his marking, tackling and other aspects of his defensive game were appauling.

Angelo Ogbonna
Was confident going into tackles and held his line well in the first half but mich more can be expected of him.

Winston Reid
Room for improvement as far as Reid is concerned. Was the focal point in the defence but could have prevented one or two of the goals.

Pedro Obiang
Just wasn't at the races, despite usually being West Ham's most consistent player. He was constantly dispossessed and failed to complete passes. He did get margainly better as the game wore on.

Mark Noble
Was a leading voice for the lads when he was on and helped the team keep their shape. Very comfortable on the ball and picking out some good passes, a shame seeing him substituted so early in the second half.

Edimilson Fernandes
Remarkably average performance, seemed like he didn't belong at that level at times. Much room for improvement and will face fearce competition from Declan Rice if he can't find his form.

Marko Arnautovic
Not a good enough performance for a player who is supposed to be our markee signing.

Javier Hernandez
Gave his absolute all for the team, he still had belief even though the rest did not. He was forever pressing, closing down and trying to receive the ball high up the pitch in order to get involved more. Hardly got any service from his team mates. He will be expecting much more from them in the matches to come.

Andre Ayew
Was kept quiet by Daley Blind all day long. When he did receive the ball he managed to hold it up well but it just wasn't a day for the strikers today.
