Player Ratings

Lukasz Fabianski
Left with little chance on the goals, he at least deserves credit for stepping off his line a couple of times and halting chances.

Vladimir Coufal
There has been a worrying downturn in Coufal's form this season. It has been most notable on the ball, and today was no different there as a 57% pass success rate shows. But usually his defending keeps things together. Not today, Coufal outclassed by Barnes and unable to be the solid presence that can forgive sloppy passing.

Aaron Cresswell
The aberration for the penalty can be forgiven as just something simply bananas. But he looked flustered from that moment onwards, whilst his delivery was poor in the final third and he defended poorly. Too easily beaten by what was a great run by Pereira.

Issa Diop
Man of the match today, Diop really stepped up for the team when he had every right to have the lowest confidence. Hooked at half-time against Kidderminster, unable to force out Zouma during all this controversy, there was little to suggest he could stand up to a late entry here. Instead, he created the goal, defended immaculately and looked a player reborn.

Craig Dawson
Saved the day, but did the day job well too. The centre backs did not look unduly concerned by Daka's pace and managed to be proactive defensively and organised to react to danger too. They were let down by their full-backs.

Declan Rice
Looked leggy. He looked tired in the second half against Watford and he looked exposed here with tired legs. Kept the ball well with simple play, harshly booked after slipping on a tackle, but lacking dynamism and nowhere near his best.

Tomas Soucek
He is a defensive rock for this side usually, but he wasn't at his best in the middle today and has to keep the ball better. 50% pass accuracy for a midfielder is unacceptable.

Pablo Fornals
Took time to get going but did show intelligence in and around the box. A lot of his game on the left depends on Cresswell delivering, and Cresswell did not do that with any real accuracy today.

Manuel Lanzini
Looked energised, worked hard to press forward and kept the ball well too. His inclusion is going to be necessary with Soucek and Rice both looking out of sorts, taking the workload a little in midfield and knitting things together with more passing rather than chaotic running.

Jarrod Bowen
He's in fine form and it shows. That goal is taken by a man fully in control of his game and with confidence in what he's doing. The corner gets him an assist too, but faded out of it for large periods of the second half.

Michail Antonio
Thankless task as a West Ham striker when the midfield and defence aren't able to pass. He worked hard all game, ran channels, pressed, battled for the ball and led good counters. The second half was riddled with mistakes long before players could even get a head up and think to pass to Antonio.


Ryan Fredericks
(Replaced Coufal, 67) Leicester stopped attacking down the left once Coufal went off. The weakness had been targeted and punished. Fredericks himself did nothing special, but he did little wrong and that was a big improvement on what went before.

Said Benrahma
(Replaced Lanzini, 78) All the energy late on came from Benrahma. Looked dangerous, threatened goal, worked hard to get involved in the build-up and the final third.

Nikola Vlasic
(Replaced Fornals, 78) Did not have the impact Benrahma did but again showed his willingness to work hard and use his body to protect the ball.

Alphonse Areola
Did not play.

Darren Randolph
Did not play.

Ben Johnson
Did not play.

Alex Kral
Did not play.

Mark Noble
Did not play.

Andriy Yarmolenko
Did not play.
