Huddersfield Town

Did not play.

Cheltenham Town

2-0: Wednesday, 23rd August

Looked sharp and bright early on, producing great through balls and defending well, but unfortunately lost his touch as the game wore on.

Did not play.

Manchester United

0-4: Sunday, 13th August

Played for an hour before being replaced.

Fulham

Replaced at half time by Pablo Zabaleta.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

Looked ok – particularly going forward.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

An improved performance from the young wing-back. Gets into some cracking attacking positions but just lacks that cool head at the end.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 14th May

A poor performance from Sam today, made a lot of rash decisions and wasn't strong enough.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Friday, 5th May

Joined the attack well and didn’t look too shabby in defence either.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Friday, 5th May

Once again showing glimpses of what he could be. Bags of quality and energy in attack and defence, but just lacking that cutting edge going forward.

Stoke City

0-0: Saturday, 29th April

Did not play.

Sunderland

2-2: Saturday, 15th April

Improving – a run in the position helps but he has a way to go yet.

Swansea

1-0: Saturday, 8th April

Fine performance. Good in defence and got forward well. I think I’ll give him MOTM.

Arsenal

0-3: Wednesday, 5th April

Improving – a run in the position helps but he has a way to go yet.

Hull City

1-2: Saturday, 1st April

Improving – a run in the position helps but he has a way to go yet.

Leicester City

2-3: Saturday, 18th March

A good match – particularly going forward when he kept the pressure on in the second half.

West Bromwich Albion

2-2: Saturday, 11th February

Did not play.

Southampton

3-1: Saturday, 4th February

Another harsh lesson for Byram; the hope is that these experiences will serve him well in the long run.

Manchester City

0-4: Wednesday, 1st February

Another harsh lesson for Byram; the hope is that these experiences will serve him well in the long run.

Middlesbrough

3-1: Saturday, 21st January

Anotherr decent performance. No criticism for the goal ,which saw him left with two men to mark.

Crystal Palace

3-0: Saturday, 14th January

(Replaced Ogbonna) Received wisdom has it that he is not highly rated behind the scenes. There will be sterner tests to come – possibly against a team who actually pose an attacking threat. However, his introduction and the reversion to a flat back four was the catalyst for the second half. Still early days.

Burnley

1-0: Wednesday, 14th December

Sam endured a torried time in the first leg so it was pleasing to see him put in a solid performance tonight in an unfamiliar position.

Astra Giurgiu

0-1: Thursday, 25th August

I keep hearing he's hugely-talented. Sadly we're yet to see it in a West Ham shirt where he's been a liability. Positionally poor, awful first touch and weak distribution.

AFC Bournemouth

1-0: Sunday, 21st August

Possesses a penchant for getting the wrong side of his man. Booked when he could feasibly have been dismissed for two separate offences.

Astra Giurgiu

1-1: Thursday, 18th August

Sam endured a torried time in the first leg so it was pleasing to see him put in a solid performance tonight in an unfamiliar position.

Chelsea

1-2: Monday, 15th August

A decent performance from the youngster and one that left fans querying why he wasn't in the starting XI.

Juventus

2-3: Sunday, 7th August

Sam endured a torried time in the first leg so it was pleasing to see him put in a solid performance tonight in an unfamiliar position.

NK Domzale

3-0: Thursday, 4th August

Stuck to his task well but there were still “right back playing on the left” moments that stronger opposition might exploit.

NK Domzale

3-0: Thursday, 4th August

Sam endured a torried time in the first leg so it was pleasing to see him put in a solid performance tonight in an unfamiliar position.

Southampton

0-1: Saturday, 6th February

(Replaced Tomkins) A quiet game - and a little lucky not to see red for a late challenge.

Manchester City

2-2: Saturday, 23rd January

An accomplished debut. Ok, it’s early days but on that showing I wouldn’t have any qualms about him starting ahead of Jenkinson.
