Profile to follow.

 

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 heís 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 heís 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 heís ever been, especially in a back four. The General may have to wait.

Chelsea

0-2: Monday, 8th April

A quieter game than heís 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 isnít 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 Gunnarssonís long throws but other than that it was a very average performance. He also didnít 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 Frenchmanís 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 heís 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 isnít 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

0-2: Saturday, 22nd December

Did not play.

Huddersfield Town

1-1: Saturday, 10th November

Did not play.

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

Did not play.

Manchester United

3-1: Saturday, 29th September

Did not play.

Chelsea

0-0: Sunday, 23rd September

Did not play.

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

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

Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Thursday, 4th January

Got in the way of absolutely everything putting his body on the lines with his countless blocks.

West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 2nd January

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.

Partially at fault for the first goal. However he was part of the engine room at the back that kept West Ham going throughout the entirety of the ninety-plus minutes of the match.

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.

0-3: Friday, 4th August

His first appearance since returning from injury.

Altona 93

3-3: Tuesday, 1st August

Fulham

2-1: Thursday, 20th July

Replaced at half time by James Collins.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

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.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

Hardly put a foot wrong all day. Strong in the air and never affraid to get stuck in and make a challenge in his first appearence back from knee surgery. Even pulled off a few tricks on the ball.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 14th May

Did not play.

Middlesbrough

3-1: Saturday, 21st January

His final game befoe a (much-needed?) op. Caught woefully out of position for the 'Boro goal.

Crystal Palace

3-0: Saturday, 14th January

Did ok first half but was sacrificed in the switch to a flat back four.

Manchester City

0-5: Friday, 6th January

When Mbokana wasnít tormenting Reid he moved on to Ogbonna with similar results.

Manchester United

0-2: Monday, 2nd January

Stoke City

1-1: Saturday, 5th November

Decent run out defensively and unfortunate not to open the scoring on the first half.

Southampton

0-3: Sunday, 25th September

Nowhere near the form that saw him capped by Italy in the Euros.

Astra Giurgiu

0-1: Thursday, 25th August

The best defender on show, but surrounded by a supporting cast of clowns.

AFC Bournemouth

1-0: Sunday, 21st August

Chelsea

1-2: Monday, 15th August

Manchester United

3-2: Tuesday, 10th May

His shaky 20 minutes coincided with the spell in which the damage was done.

1-2: Wednesday, 13th April

Spectacular he ainít. Steady he is.

Arsenal

3-3: Saturday, 9th April

Didnít let the early yellow put him off in the slightest.

Crystal Palace

2-2: Saturday, 2nd April

A decent performance in the main but his partnership with Reid turned all Laurel and Hardy for the second Equaliser.

Chelsea

2-2: Saturday, 19th March

Good display from a defender who is becoming a reliable base for the back four.

Manchester United

1-1: Sunday, 13th March

Spectacular he ainít. Steady he is.

AFC Bournemouth

3-1: Tuesday, 12th January

The pick of our defenders on the night - some great challenges and interceptions.

1-0: Saturday, 9th January

The quieter of the two centre halves but a good and effective match nevertheless.

Liverpool

2-0: Saturday, 2nd January

The quieter of the two centre halves but a good and effective match nevertheless.

Southampton

2-1: Sunday, 27th December

Got caught out of position quite a lot in the first half Ė often when trying to cover for Jenkinson. However, the full-back swap in the second half saw him regain some composure.

Aston Villa

1-1: Saturday, 26th December

A decent performance let down by conceding an utterly unnecessary penalty. Even though he was clearly impeded prior to the award.
