Everton

0-2: Saturday, 30th March

Did not play.

Arsenal

1-0: Saturday, 12th January

Huddersfield Town

1-1: Saturday, 10th November

Possibly a tad fortunate not to concede a potentially silly penalty but was nontheless particularly disappointed at being replaced.

Burnley

4-2: Saturday, 3rd November

Bournemouth

1-1: Saturday, 20th January

Very good eye for a pass.

Shrewsbury Town

1-0: Tuesday, 16th January

Aggressive in his defending and kept a cool head on the ball in midfield delivering very accurate short passes and long balls. Not to mention his absolute stunning long-range strike.

Leicester City

1-1: Friday, 24th November

At first was a bit careless in midfield but improved as the game progressed.Needs to do more.

(Replaced Fernandes) Comments to follow.

Burnley

1-1: Saturday, 14th October

Had a very cool head in midfield when introduced and was the mastermind behind West Ham's best moves in the second half.

Swansea City

1-0: Saturday, 30th September

Came up wirh the only chance that made the game worth watching. Always knows what to do with the ball before receiving, often ending up in quick one-touch football that speeds the game up. A consistent performance from the Spaniard, but still letting sloppy mistakes creep into his game.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-3: Saturday, 23rd September

Huddersfield Town

2-0: Monday, 11th September

A better showing from 'Perico' this time round after a few mediocre displays in recent games. Was willing to try something different when striking from a long way out that ultimately led to the first goal.

Newcastle United

0-3: Saturday, 26th August

Injured during warm-up.

Cheltenham Town

2-0: Wednesday, 23rd August

Back to his old ways after a poor showing at Old Trafford. A consistent performance from the man from Alcalá de Henares.

Southampton

2-3: Saturday, 19th August

(Replaced Masuaku) Bolstered up the midfield for the closing 15 or so. Did ok.

Manchester United

0-4: Sunday, 13th August

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.

Manchester City

0-4: Wednesday, 1st February

Astra Giurgiu

0-1: Thursday, 25th August

Playing Nordtveit and Obiang in the same team simply diudn't make sense, for they essentially perform the same role. And neither did that particularly effectively.

AFC Bournemouth

1-0: Sunday, 21st August

Barely on the pitch long enough to fill his lungs. A tactical change to waste time.

Astra Giurgiu

1-1: Thursday, 18th August

NK Domzale

3-0: Thursday, 4th August

It took forever to get him on – either the buzzer thing on ref no.2’s arm wasn’t working or ref no.1 walked off still wearing it. A quiet but effective ten minutes.

1-4: Saturday, 7th May

Manchester United

1-2: Wednesday, 13th April

(Replaced Reid) A solid half hour in replacing the Kiwi.

Crystal Palace

2-2: Saturday, 2nd April

(Replaced Noble, 80) Ten minute cameo to save Noble from the insane ramblings of Clattenburg.

Chelsea

2-2: Saturday, 19th March

Manchester United

1-1: Sunday, 13th March

Liverpool

0-0: Saturday, 30th January

The usual no nonsense, quietly efficient performance.

Newcastle United

1-2: Saturday, 16th January

(Replaced Lanzini) Did that disrupting and laying off role as well as we are beginning to expect from him in his time on the pitch.

AFC Bournemouth

3-1: Tuesday, 12th January

Excellent on Saturday against Wolves and another good performance here. Growing week by week.

Liverpool

2-0: Saturday, 2nd January

Liverpool

One of those quietly unheralded performances. Stepped in, broke things up, laid it off.

AFC Bournemouth

3-4: Saturday, 22nd August

Against Leicester he did well picking up the ball in front of the defence and moving things on. This week it was difficult to see where he was supposed to be playing or what his role was.

Leicester City

1-2: Saturday, 15th August

(Replaced Oxford) Useful debut. Like Payet he can spot a pass.
