vs Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Wednesday, 1st December

Did not play.

vs Rapid Vienna

2-0: Thursday, 25th November
(Played 90 minutes)

Man of the match here, carrying a threat and showing he can dominate teams at this level. If he is to leave West Ham, he has put himself in the shop window with performances like this. Took his goal well, won the penalty (although I'm not sure you can give credit for being battered for no reason) and made chances for Soucek and Fornals with clever passing.

vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-1: Saturday, 20th November
(Played 20 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 70) Made some runs and got into dangerous positions but could not make an impact.

vs Manchester City

0-0: Wednesday, 27th October
(Played 90 minutes)

Has a enough of a presence up front to use muscle and his frame to protect the ball, but he isn?EUR(TM)t great at it consistently. Never really threatened but worked hard in a thankless role.

vs KRC Genk

3-0: Thursday, 21st October
(Played 90 minutes)

Frustrating at times, it is interesting to see that he looks a little fitter this year and has definitely responded to calls for harder work in this West Ham side. Another who is valuable on nights like this as he clearly knows his game and knows he is better than the opponents he faces. It?EUR(TM)s a confidence and assurance that helps a heavily rotated side. Won the ball excellently for the third goal and defended well.

vs Everton

1-0: Sunday, 17th October
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 90) Barely on the pitch for long.

vs Rapid Vienna

2-0: Thursday, 30th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Certainly wasn?EUR(TM)t going to be bullied by the Rapid Wien defence, making sure he got one back on Wimmer after being clobbered. Lovely pass for the first goal, the vision great and the caress of the pass just lovely.

vs Leeds United

2-1: Saturday, 25th September
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio 90+7) On for even less.

vs Manchester United

1-0: Wednesday, 22nd September
(Played 90 minutes)

How he hasn?EUR(TM)t scored near the end, he?EUR(TM)ll never know. He would have been celebrating in his mind, he?EUR(TM)d done everything else right. Probably the hardest he?EUR(TM)s worked in a West Ham shirt and he does look up for it more this year than last. Made two good chances with clever passing and the header at the end prevented a real goalscoring chance.

vs Manchester United

1-2: Sunday, 19th September
(Played 22 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Vlasic, 68) Made himself more of a nuisance and seemed to put in more running than his usual. Created the penalty and was a little less easy to push around than the others up top.

vs Dinamo Zagreb

2-0: Thursday, 16th September

(Replaced Antonio, 81) A few dancing stepovers sold defenders. Looked confident he was better than his opponents.

vs Southampton

0-0: Saturday, 11th September
(Played 7 minutes, sub)

With about 10 minutes to play, credit to him for bringing on energy and working hard when defending. An interesting option, may prove more valuable than some critics expect in a tough season.

vs Crystal Palace

2-2: Saturday, 28th August
(Played 3 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Fornals, 87) Barely involved, but the stupidity of his touches in our area when defending deserve to be chastised.

vs Leicester City

4-1: Monday, 23rd August
(Played 1 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Benrahma, 89) Barely got a touch of the ball.

vs Newcastle United

4-2: Sunday, 15th August
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen 90) Brought on to waste time.

vs Manchester United

0-1: Tuesday, 9th February
(Played 54 minutes)

He was offered nothing, really, and whilst we improved in the second half, he then got forced off. Not sure he has the physicality to be a striker and he doesn?EUR(TM)t have the pace to threaten, so it appears to be built on the fact he has a good scoring record.

vs Fulham

0-0: Saturday, 6th February
(Played 34 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 56) He attempted to be a bit more direct than Bowen, but he couldn?EUR(TM)t get to the pace of the game, and by the time he did, he was moved up front and doesn?EUR(TM)t appear suited to it.

vs Liverpool

1-3: Sunday, 31st January
(Played 28 minutes, sub)

(replaced Fornals, 62) He isn?EUR(TM)t a striker and that was clear. Even when he was the lone man up top, he just played on the wing. Not the solution to our back up problem.

vs Crystal Palace

3-2: Tuesday, 26th January
(Played 7 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio, 83) With minimal time, it was good to see that he will put himself about up front. He was in no way scared of a physical tussle with midfield or defence, which will be important if he is to play up top for this side.

vs Doncaster Rovers

4-0: Saturday, 23rd January
(Played 90 minutes)

Took his goal brilliantly in his first game for the club as a central striker. Could have had more, half openings late on that went wasted by too many touches.

vs West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 19th January
(Played 28 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Benrahma, 62) The header was excellent, setting up Antonio and securing the goal that won the game.

vs Burnley

1-0: Saturday, 16th January
(Played 8 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 82) Should have done better with the late opening, but to his credit he came on and worked hard, did his defensive shift and that is the worry with him, whether he will be a liability defensively.

vs Stockport County

1-0: Monday, 11th January
(Played 68 minutes)

Anonymous after his early shot. Would drift inside and consistently narrow the space to play in, made no effort to get in behind and too slow to ever beat a man. Became a hindrance to the performance.

vs Everton

1-0: Friday, 1st January
(Played 17 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 73) Like Lanzini, he came on and did his job. Sometimes his risky passes are frustrating, one flick allowed Everton a counter attack when he had time to do much more, but then others would have played the safer pass than the one he flicked through for Soucek.

vs Southampton

0-0: Tuesday, 29th December
(Played 90 minutes)

Probably a little frustrated that he missed the time in the game where his side made more progress going forward. Doesn?EUR(TM)t cover his full back like Bowen does, would arguably have been a better choice up front than Haller.

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Saturday, 26th December
(Played 45 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 46) A lot of moves broke down at his feet, and he has a quarter of Bowen's workrate, but he looked to make things happen in the final third and seems freed from the restrictions Moyes has placed on other players. It wasn't 45 minutes that convinced you he needs to be playing more, but it was enough to show he offers a threat to be used more regularly from the bench.

vs Crystal Palace

1-1: Tuesday, 15th December
(Played 10 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Bowen, 80) A harsh judgement for a 10-minute cameo, but he didn't get to the pace of the game and was ineffective.

vs Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 7th November

Did not play.

vs Liverpool

1-2: Saturday, 31st October
(Played 16 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Haller, 74) Appears to be Moyes' first choice attacking sub. A few good dribbles and did run harder than Haller, but came on as West Ham got into full defence mode and made no difference.

vs Manchester City

1-1: Saturday, 24th October
(Played 0 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio, 52) Yarmolenko was quite horrendous. He just couldn?EUR(TM)t pull off anything he attempted and nearly lost the game with a through ball to Sterling. It would have been hilarious if it wasn?EUR(TM)t making the game harder for everyone else.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

3-3: Sunday, 18th October
(Played 13 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Antonio, 77) Didn't do a lot, but the intricacy of his play for the second goal was what made it.

vs Leicester City

3-0: Sunday, 4th October

Did not play.

vs Everton

1-4: Wednesday, 30th September
(Played 90 minutes)

He found it far too easy and at times it looked like he knew it, a little casual but when you score two and create two, who can complain?

vs Hull City

5-1: Tuesday, 22nd September
(Played 90 minutes)

He found it far too easy and at times it looked like he knew it, a little casual but when you score two and create two, who can complain?

vs Charlton Athletic

3-0: Tuesday, 15th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Looks to be working hard to force his way into the first eleven. Created Haller?EUR(TM)s first with an excellent run and perfect pass.

vs Newcastle United

0-2: Saturday, 12th September
(Played 23 minutes, sub)

(Replaced Fornals, 67) For pure effort alone, he gets a reasonable rating. And he did have something about him, a hint of danger offered by no one else.

vs Brentford

2-1: Saturday, 29th August
(Played 90 minutes)

Although there was little to show from his 45 minutes on the field, he did get on the scoresheet once again - as he has an uncanny habit of doing. While he continues to do that he'll always have a part to play.

vs Ipswich Town

4-1: Tuesday, 25th August
(Played 90 minutes)

n/a

Aston Villa

1-1: Sunday, 26th July

(Replaced Bowen) Got the lucky goal, but otherwise he was too static and his desire to cut onto that left foot often means he is standing still and waiting in an almost obsessive manage to get that movement.

Manchester United

1-1: Wednesday, 22nd July

(Replaced Bowen) Did the required job with the time ticking away.

Watford

3-1: Friday, 17th July

(Replaced Bowen) Came on with energy but also came on as the game slowed down.

Norwich City

4-0: Saturday, 11th July

(Replaced Bowen) Played like a man who knew there was no challenge, doing tricks and trying things out.

Burnley

0-1: Wednesday, 8th July

Defensively, he doesn’t do the work that Bowen does. If he did, maybe that cross for the first doesn’t happen. He carried a threat in the first half, but without a turn of pace, he doesn’t do a lot outside the box.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 4th July

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Chelsea

3-2: Wednesday, 1st July

(Replaced Bowen) Came on, scored, job done. A trademark goal.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-2: Tuesday, 23rd June

* Other unused subs: Xande Silva, Albian Ajeti.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-2: Saturday, 20th June

(Replaced Fornals) Barely noticed.

Arsenal

0-1: Saturday, 7th March

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Liverpool

2-3: Monday, 24th February

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Leicester City

1-4: Wednesday, 22nd January

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Everton

1-1: Saturday, 18th January

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Bournemouth

4-0: Wednesday, 1st January

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 28th December

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Thursday, 26th December

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Southampton

1-0: Saturday, 14th December

(Replaced Snodgrass) Was so unaware defensively that he actually seemed to hinder Fredericks. Sloppy on the ball too.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-2: Wednesday, 4th December

(Replaced Snodgrass) Poor on the ball, static movement, ineffective. A quite horrid cameo.

Chelsea

1-0: Saturday, 30th November

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-3: Saturday, 23rd November

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Burnley

0-3: Saturday, 9th November

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 2nd November

Only deserved to stay on because of past efforts. Did nothing today. Doesn’t come back to defend set pieces, yet he’s arguably close to the tallest player.

Sheffield United

1-1: Saturday, 26th October

The assist for the goal was simple yet brilliant, and if his teammates were better, he’d have ended the game with three assists, having put the ball on a plate for both Anderson and Cresswell.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 19th October

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Saturday, 5th October

October’s start is quite the contrast to September’s end. Lacked spark and creativity, not able to get close enough to Haller to be a goal scoring threat.

Bournemouth

2-2: Saturday, 28th September

Better than against Manchester United. His crossing was very good, his goal was excellently taken. He comes alive in and around the box, then can be at best neat when away from the sharp end. Is working hard to cover defensively.

Manchester United

2-0: Sunday, 22nd September

Moments win matches, and he had two of the biggest ones. First, wrapping his foot around a ball that looked to be getting away and scoring the only chance of the first half. Then his block on Lingard keeps it at 1-0. In cagey games, those kind of moments are golden, even if some of his overall play was rusty.

Aston Villa

0-0: Monday, 16th September

Worked hard and looked fitter, with some nice touches coming off. Feel he's either going to be in decisive moments or otherwise drift.

Norwich City

2-0: Saturday, 31st August

Was having an up and down game before his goal, which was excellently taken. Does have the makings of a striker about him and was the one who got close to Haller.

Watford

3-1: Saturday, 24th August

Can see why Pellegrini would like him, he is a better passer than Antonio and his height does make him an aerial threat. Wasn’t awful, just lacked sharpness and his lack of pace was notable at times. Signs of something better to come.

Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 17th August

(Replaced Fornals) Had his odd moment, working his way back into football after a long time out.

Athletico Bilbao

2-2: Saturday, 3rd August

(Replaced Anderson) Another decent run-out for a player still feeling his way back to full fitness following last season's horrendous injury.

Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 27th July

Match notes to follow.

Newcastle United

0-1: Saturday, 20th July

Unlike his cameo against Man City, he did little here to suggest he should be starting in the Premier League next month.

Manchester City

1-4: Wednesday, 17th July

(Replaced Rice) "I'll be like a new signing!" he (sort of) said last week. And he was a bit. Unlucky not to score with an effort that rattled the post.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-3: Wednesday, 31st October

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Saturday, 20th October

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-1: Friday, 5th October

Manchester United

3-1: Saturday, 29th September

Scored (or played a major part in) West Ham's all-important second goal on the cusp of half time. Looks like he's enjoying his football; long may that last.

Macclesfield Town

8-0: Wednesday, 26th September

(Replaced Snodgrass)

Chelsea

0-0: Sunday, 23rd September

Had a decent game overall, but his performance will mostly be remembered for the glaring miss that could've won West Ham all three points.

Everton

3-1: Sunday, 16th September

(Replaced Snodgrass)

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-1: Saturday, 1st September

(Replaced Snodgrass)

AFC Wimbledon

3-1: Tuesday, 28th August

(Replaced Arnautovic) Looked lively and the Hammer most likely to create something noteworthy. A promising start and his cameo was one of few positives to take from the game.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 25th August

(Replaced Snodgrass) Like last week, looked lively in his cameo role.

Bournemouth

1-2: Saturday, 18th August

(Replaced Hernandez) Lively for a second successive weekend. Should be in contention for a start at Arsenal next weekend.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 12th August

(Replaced Arnautovic) Looked lively and the Hammer most likely to create something noteworthy. A promising start and his cameo was one of few positives to take from the game.
