vs Liverpool

3-2: Saturday, 6th November
(Played 90 minutes)

Looked injured, survived, then forced off by an elbow. Was holding his ground well until that point.

vs Aston Villa

4-1: Sunday, 31st October
(Played 90 minutes)

As mentioned above, it was some of his long balls from the back that made it so the ball kept coming back and made it harder for the team to keep control of the ball and the game.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Sunday, 24th October
(Played 90 minutes)

A good foul on Ndombele was probably the best thing he did, picking up a booking but throwing everything through the midfielder to stop him touching it through to Kane. After that, he was exposed once by a Son run but had a comfortable game. The defence looked strong as a unit and the two in the middle lead it.

vs Everton

1-0: Sunday, 17th October
(Played 90 minutes)

Reasonably quiet in defence, doing his job without fuss, the goal was obviously crucial and taken well.

vs Brentford

1-2: Sunday, 3rd October
(Played 90 minutes)

Toney and Mbeumo had the beating of the centre back pair. Moreover, the last minute foul was not a necessary one and then the defence was disorganised for the free kick.

vs Leeds United

2-1: Saturday, 25th September
(Played 90 minutes)

The centre backs were not particularly tested by Rodrigo up front, and Ogbonna was quiet at the back. Did his job fine, just not particularly tested, whilst Zouma seemed to be the magnet as balls came in.

vs Manchester United

1-0: Wednesday, 22nd September

Did not play.

vs Manchester United

1-2: Sunday, 19th September
(Played 90 minutes)

The defence as a unit was strong, yet still gave away too many chances. He is never going to look panicked, he enjoys defending and does it without fuss. But didn?EUR(TM)t impose himself today.

vs Southampton

0-0: Saturday, 11th September
(Played 90 minutes)

Comfortable for the most part, until Broja came on. He could neither bully nor outpace the forward and will probably be delighted the young striker was only a late sub. Looked as slow as Dawson, only adding to the need for Zouma to settle in.

vs Crystal Palace

2-2: Saturday, 28th August
(Played 90 minutes)

Looked to have saved Dawson?EUR(TM)s blushes, but the disorganisation was punished. Clearly the better of the two, including in his use of the ball. Needs a new partner soon.

vs Leicester City

4-1: Monday, 23rd August
(Played 90 minutes)

As above. Just a pair of smart and wily centre backs who knew what to do against Jamie Vardy and were disciplined in how they did it.

vs Newcastle United

4-2: Sunday, 15th August
(Played 90 minutes)

Less erratic than Dawson, but not composed. Ogbonna is usually composed or aggressive, today he looked neither.

vs Celtic

6-2: Saturday, 24th July
(Played 5 minutes)

Worrying. Injured after just five minutes and due for a scan on Monday to assess the damage.

vs Southampton

3-0: Sunday, 23rd May
(Played 90 minutes)

It was one of those games were barely really noticing Ogbonna was a good thing. He just made Danny Ings a non-entity. Not flashy, just solid and controlled defending and besting of a direct opponent.

vs West Bromwich Albion

3-1: Wednesday, 19th May
(Played 90 minutes)

Sloppier on the ball than he has been for a long time, a couple of silly and misplaced passes, he was otherwise in good control and then the icing on the cake was a goal. A little rusty but notably helps the whole defence settle.

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 15th May
(Played 90 minutes)

Relatively quiet for Ogbonna. Did his job with little fuss but that?EUR(TM)s ideally what you want from a defender. Good game to get used to playing again without being really tested.

vs Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 24th April
(Played 90 minutes)

Whilst he had a good control of the defence for the majority of the game, the goal exposed him. First Werner was able to handle the physical pressure, and then the German lost Ogbonna to get into the box and score. He may well think being one of a back five may allow him a bit of cover, but they were weak once their leader was beaten.

vs Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 17th April
(Played 90 minutes)

A solid return for Ogbonna was thrown into turmoil by the insanity around him. He came in as the Cresswell, but isn?EUR(TM)t as good a passer and then his team lost the plot. He did well defensively and tried to push up the left channel when we had eleven on the field. Having him back as a central member of a three or one of the two will be a big lift, but we still conceded three goals.

vs Manchester United

0-1: Tuesday, 9th February
(Played 17 minutes)

Scary to have lost such an influential player. Mad to think Soucek got a red card at the weekend and Martial got a shrug.

vs Fulham

0-0: Saturday, 6th February
(Played 90 minutes)

Much the same as Dawson. Just did his work effectively and limited the real danger in the box, which should have been much more frequent considering the pressure they had.

vs Aston Villa

3-1: Wednesday, 3rd February
(Played 90 minutes)

You?EUR(TM)d have to say that Ogbonna had a quiet game. Watkins peeled off to Dawson?EUR(TM)s side and Villa were desperate to play down the left with Grealish. Comfortable defending as ever.

vs Liverpool

1-3: Sunday, 31st January
(Played 90 minutes)

Out of character performance. Didn?EUR(TM)t impose himself, couldn?EUR(TM)t disturb how Liverpool played and looked mesmerised by the movement of their attackers.

vs Crystal Palace

3-2: Tuesday, 26th January
(Played 90 minutes)

Beaten too easily on the edge by Zaha for the first goal, which is very rare with Ogbonna. Settled after that and played well enough, but not at his best.

vs Doncaster Rovers

4-0: Saturday, 23rd January

Did not play. Other unused subs: Declan Rice, Michail Antonio.

vs West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 19th January
(Played 90 minutes)

Calm and collected. Every game, Ogbonna is calm and collected. Must be a dream to play alongside. A clear level or three above the attackers against him.

vs Burnley

1-0: Saturday, 16th January
(Played 90 minutes)

Can do all the dirty work like Dawson, but also much better on the ball and defending against faster players or with space behind him. As ever, just calmly brilliant, really. A lot of headers won, clearance and blocks. The one time he got turned, he makes it so hard to go around him that not much was gained.

vs Stockport County

1-0: Monday, 11th January
(Played 90 minutes)

A man who never looks too perturbed when playing football did not seem particularly bothered by conditions or difficult opponents. He got the job done at the back and just carried on playing how he plays.

vs Everton

1-0: Friday, 1st January
(Played 90 minutes)

An absolute magnet to Everton crosses. Calm with his work, as he often is, but enjoying the scrap of it too.

vs Southampton

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

The man you would most want alongside you in a West Ham defence on your debut. As calm and collected as ever, he defended with his usual command and is having another excellent season.

vs Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Saturday, 26th December
(Played 90 minutes)

Reasonably solid, but again the defence seems to have lost a little organisation lately, and whilst the blocks and headers in the first half were good, it's probably also the absolute easiest part of his game.

vs Chelsea

0-3: Monday, 21st December
(Played 90 minutes)

As above, really. Never particularly troubled, but will be disappointed to miss the header for the first goal.

vs Crystal Palace

1-1: Tuesday, 15th December
(Played 90 minutes)

The better of the pair, Ogbonna had his usual control and assurance. Dealt with everything Palace threw at him with a level of ease.

vs Leeds United

2-1: Friday, 11th December
(Played 90 minutes)

A goal. nearly an assist and eight clearances in what was almost a perfect defensive display. However, he too was guilty of allowing runners through the middle of the defence.

vs Manchester United

1-3: Saturday, 5th December
(Played 90 minutes)

Seemed to get his line wrong individually a few times and the absence of a standard striker seemed to disturb how the central three defended. Much as they got caught by Kane and Tottenham, the wider men were allowed to move centrally as the centre backs were not occupied by a striker.

vs Aston Villa

2-1: Saturday, 28th November
(Played 90 minutes)

Similar to Balbuena, although Ogbonna it did appear was able to head away every cross. His goal gives him the extra mark, well taken and he lost his marker well.

vs Sheffield United

1-0: Sunday, 22nd November
(Played 90 minutes)

When challenged, quite imperious. He was rarely challenged, but dealt with it all in stride and looks every inch an Italian international centre back.

vs Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 7th November
(Played 63 minutes)

The drama at the end doesn?EUR(TM)t happen with Ogbonna on the pitch. Defence lost a leader and he dealt with Mitrovic well, including how he got him booked.

vs Liverpool

1-2: Saturday, 31st October
(Played 90 minutes)

Probably the most hard done by of the players on the end of a defeat considering he cleared up well, defended strongly and was comfortable against all of Liverpool's players one-on-one. Mistakes around him were what cost the game.

vs Manchester City

1-1: Saturday, 24th October
(Played 90 minutes)

Composed and calm in the middle, him and Balbuena were aerially dominant and should take it as a big compliment that Aguero was subbed off at half time.

vs Tottenham Hotspur

3-3: Sunday, 18th October
(Played 90 minutes)

Criticism and credit for his handling of Kane. He is the senior defender and the senior voice in the West Ham side, what with Noble a squad player now. He should have done something earlier to stop Kane, even if he tried something that didn't work. But when he did, it changed the game, stopped Spurs playing and then helped as Kane moved further forward ad into areas Ogbonna wanted him.

vs Leicester City

3-0: Sunday, 4th October
(Played 90 minutes)

A quite fantastic performance. In a defence that itself was brilliant, Ogbonna still stood out. Took on Vardy and silenced him, following the forward around and nullifying him everywhere. Best individual defensive performance since Collins against Suarez at Anfield. Best player on the pitch in a high quality performance.

vs Newcastle United

0-2: Saturday, 12th September
(Played 90 minutes)

This game is much worse without Ogbonna. A couple of telling interventions and not once did he seem at all disturbed by the physicality of Carroll.

vs Brentford

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

KUMB's latest Player of the Year runner-up struggled with a lack of defensive quality around him.

vs Wycombe Wanderers

5-1: Tuesday, 25th August
(Played 71 minutes)

n/a

Aston Villa

1-1: Sunday, 26th July

Calm and collected, as ever. One little fake in the corner to dribble the ball out was delightful.

Manchester United

1-1: Wednesday, 22nd July

Rarely gave any forward breathing space. That said, Martial stepped away from the box and allowed to turn around for the goal. Ogbonna never got near enough to him or Greenwood in that move. He was otherwise very good and took charge, so it’s hard to criticise him especially as it was collective failure on the equaliser.

Watford

3-1: Friday, 17th July

Sarr caused issues but Ogbonna was calm and strong when dealing with him, rescuing multiple situations where the pacy winger looked to get in behind. His best season for the club.

Norwich City

4-0: Saturday, 11th July

A nice workout for Angelo, who did his job and will be delighted to mark five years at the club with such a big win.

Burnley

0-1: Wednesday, 8th July

Much the same as Diop, really. Did his job to a sound level.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 4th July

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Chelsea

3-2: Wednesday, 1st July

Whilst he did nothing notably standout, there’s such a presence to Ogbonna and something so reassuring about him compared to a defence without him. Little panic, brave and good in the air, Ogbonna has shone this season and the games without him, the side are worse.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-2: Tuesday, 23rd June

Did not play.

Arsenal

0-1: Saturday, 7th March

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Southampton

3-1: Saturday, 29th February

Ogbonna is marshalling the defence. He wasn’t exceptional, just comfortably good and in control of his game. Form like this keeps West Ham up.

Liverpool

2-3: Monday, 24th February

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Manchester City

0-2: Wednesday, 19th February

Dealt with Aguero reasonably well and was strong defending crosses.

Brighton & Hove Albion

3-3: Saturday, 1st February

His worst performance of the season. The second goal was primarily his fault, the ball was definitely his to control. Whilst he couldn’t stop the ball hitting him for the own goal, the defending was a mess. Second half, he lost control.

Liverpool

0-2: Wednesday, 29th January

It is fair to say he and Diop played well except for the moment they didn’t, and the moment they didn’t probably cost the side the game. Firmino was given too much time and space to do as he pleased in the box for the build to the penalty. Ogbonna should have done more. He was otherwise unflustered by the Liverpool forward line and will need that resolve in the next few months.

West Bromwich Albion

0-1: Saturday, 25th January

A commanding performance which was punctuated by frequent forays into the opposition half; given license to roam in areas where he'd previously have suffered a nosebleed.

Leicester City

1-4: Wednesday, 22nd January

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Everton

1-1: Saturday, 18th January

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Sheffield United

0-1: Friday, 10th January

Was reasonably solid, although the defence did wobble a bit after the goal. Equally, the defending at set pieces was not good enough.

Gillingham

2-0: Sunday, 5th January

A commanding performance which was punctuated by frequent forays into the opposition half; given license to roam in areas where he'd previously have suffered a nosebleed.

Bournemouth

4-0: Wednesday, 1st January

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 28th December

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Thursday, 26th December

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Southampton

1-0: Saturday, 14th December

Made vital blocks, tackles and clearances late on. Was calm and confident before that.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 7th December

As above, the defence wasn’t good enough. Did well to score.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-2: Wednesday, 4th December

Defended ably and kept Jimenez quiet. Helped Cresswell with Traore. Left stretched for the second, exposed by the gung ho approach for an equaliser.

Chelsea

1-0: Saturday, 30th November

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-3: Saturday, 23rd November

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Burnley

0-3: Saturday, 9th November

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 2nd November

Did not play.

Sheffield United

1-1: Saturday, 26th October

Did not play.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 19th October

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Crystal Palace

1-2: Saturday, 5th October

Won everything in the air that was anywhere near him, was fast enough and strong enough to silence Zaha and Ayew whenever near them. Only defender awake to the danger in the first half. He was let down by his teammates.

Bournemouth

2-2: Saturday, 28th September

As with Diop, just wasn’t at his best.

Manchester United

2-0: Sunday, 22nd September

Really daft yellow, although he had to take the man once he committed. Calm and confident defensively, left behind by pace a couple times.

Aston Villa

0-0: Monday, 16th September

Another quietly effective game, he and Diop bossed the middle.

Norwich City

2-0: Saturday, 31st August

Mainly dealt with Pukki and did it well. Looking solid.

Newport County

2-0: Tuesday, 27th August

Did not play.

Watford

3-1: Saturday, 24th August

Commanding in the air and did a couple of the ugly things that a real centre back will need to do from time to time.

Brighton & Hove Albion

1-1: Saturday, 17th August

Lack of pressure gave Trossard an easier effort on goal and he was part of a defence that was lucky not to concede three or four.

Manchester City

0-5: Saturday, 10th August

Did not play.

Athletico Bilbao

2-2: Saturday, 3rd August

(Replaced Balbuena) Not involved to any great degree as Bilbao's attacks were limited following the Italian's introduction.

Hertha Berlin

5-3: Wednesday, 31st July

(Replaced Balbuena) The Italian hasn't enjoyed the best of pre-season where he had frequently looked off the pace. Looked comfortable today however.

Fulham

1-0: Saturday, 27th July

Match notes to follow.

Newcastle United

0-1: Saturday, 20th July

Very disappointing. A lack of notable effort saw him left standing for the goal and he was caught out once or twice by quicker players.

Manchester City

1-4: Wednesday, 17th July

Still looking a little clumsy and conceded the penalty that put Manchester City ahead.

Watford

4-1: Sunday, 12th May

Did not play.

Southampton

3-0: Saturday, 4th May

One of his best games as a West Ham player. 6 interceptions, 4 clearances, 2 blocked shots - as close to imperious as he’s ever been, especially in a back four. The General may have to wait.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Saturday, 27th April

One of his best games as a West Ham player. 6 interceptions, 4 clearances, 2 blocked shots - as close to imperious as he’s ever been, especially in a back four. The General may have to wait.

Leicester City

2-2: Saturday, 20th April

Big channel opened up on his side that Barnes walked into.

Manchester United

1-2: Saturday, 13th April

One of his best games as a West Ham player. 6 interceptions, 4 clearances, 2 blocked shots - as close to imperious as he’s ever been, especially in a back four. The General may have to wait.

Chelsea

0-2: Monday, 8th April

A quieter game than he’s had recently, possibly due to the speed and movement of Kante and Hudson-Odoi down that side.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 30th March

People talk about who is going to partner Diop now Balbuena is fit, but Ogbonna has been the better centre back for a while now and isn’t the one who should be under threat.

Huddersfield Town

4-3: Saturday, 16th March

Struggled at the back as well, arguably not quite as much as Diop, but his headed goal was crucial in turning the game back.

Cardiff City

0-2: Saturday, 9th March

Calm for the most part, making ten clearances. Part of an inconsistent defensive unit but without the blatant errors of others.

Cardiff City

0-2: Saturday, 9th March

Got his head to a few of Gunnarsson’s long throws but other than that it was a very average performance. He also didn’t do much to prevent the first goal.

Newcastle Utd

2-0: Saturday, 2nd March

Played exceptionally well, one of three contenders for man of the match. Only outshone by Diop due to how crucial some of the Frenchman’s contributions were.

Manchester City

0-1: Wednesday, 27th February

One of his best games as a West Ham player. 6 interceptions, 4 clearances, 2 blocked shots - as close to imperious as he’s ever been, especially in a back four. The General may have to wait.

Fulham

3-1: Friday, 22nd February

Fought and dominated physically. Seems to like strikers like Mitrovic. Good performance and never looked like conceding in the second half when Fulham were desperate to get something.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

He did what he needed to for most of the game. More consistent than recent games.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

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

Liverpool

1-1: Monday, 4th February

A truly inconsistent player. This week, Ogbonna was excellent. Made vital interceptions and dominant ones too, pushing out of defence to take things he could well have sat off. Questions around the goal, although his initial line was perfect.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-3: Tuesday, 29th January

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

AFC Wimbledon

2-4: Saturday, 26th January

Sometimes he has moments where he looks terrified of football as a concept. This game it never stopped.

Bournemouth

0-2: Saturday, 19th January

Arsenal

1-0: Saturday, 12th January

Birmingham City

2-0: Saturday, 5th January

The kind of shaky game that worries fans, and why he isn’t pushing too hard to be first choice. Looks much more assured with Cresswell to his left.

Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Wednesday, 2nd January

Burnley

0-2: Sunday, 30th December

Southampton

2-1: Thursday, 27th December

Watford

Burnley

4-2: Saturday, 3rd November

(Replaced Arnautovic) Sent on to shore up the defence at 3-2 - and barely had to become involved.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-3: Wednesday, 31st October

Did not play.

Leicester City

1-1: Saturday, 27th October

(Replaced Anderson) Thrown into midfield and with a little more composure could've grabbed an unlikely second prior to Leicester's equaliser.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Saturday, 20th October

Did not play.

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-1: Friday, 5th October

AFC Wimbledon

3-1: Tuesday, 28th August

The only player at the heart of the West Ham defence with any semblence of longevity in the team, and it showed.

Bournemouth

1-2: Saturday, 18th August

Struggling to develop a pertnership with Balbuena and it appears to be affecting his own game.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 12th August

A good source for playing it out from the back with some decent long balls. Made an excellent tackle to deny Oliver Burke from putting West Brom ahead.

Bournemouth

3-3: Tuesday, 26th December

Gelled well with Aaron Cresswell and prevented City from creating many chances.

Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 23rd December

Didn't do much wrong thoughout the course of the ninety minutes, he was just left exposed as were his two fellow centre-backs in Newcastle's two second half goals.

Cheltenham Town

2-0: Wednesday, 23rd August

Did what was expected of him, keep the Cheltenham attackers quiet and get on the end of West Ham set pieces, combined perfectly with the notable presence of James Collins.

Southampton

2-3: Saturday, 19th August

Looked reasonably comfortable.

Manchester United

0-4: Sunday, 13th August

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

Manchester City

Some good blocks in there and played some good football. However, he did look a lot like a player who had been out for a month or two and was well off the pace at times.
