Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel del Castillo
Rarely called upon, this was one of the easier days Adrian will enjoy - although his command of his area remains a slight concern.


Carl Jenkinson
With a three-pronged attack for much of the game Jenks was rarely afforded license to roam with defensive duties at the forefront. There, he was solid enough.


Aaron Cresswell
As per his fellow full-back, although he troubled City's defence slightly more.


James Tomkins



Winston Reid
The finesse of Reid eventually shone through despite this being a game perhaps more suited to the no-nonsense appraoch of James Collins. Only once was he beaten by the giant 6'6" Smith.


Mark Noble
Fairly ineffective, certainly below his usual excellent standard in a game you'd expect him to shine in.


Alex Song
His recent slump in form hit a new low today with his worst performance since arriving at West Ham. Too many passes wen astray and he looked less than 100 per cent fit.


Kevin Nolan
No more effective than his two fellow central midfielders. Credit though for his involvement in the goal - and the way he took a rocket of a pass on the chest.


Stewart Downing
Once again shunted out wide and far less involved as a result. Once chance left City's 'keeper grasping at thin air but there were few signs of his excellent recent form.


Andy Carroll
Once again he was anonymous for large spells yet came up with a goal-line clearance and an assist for the goal.


Enner Valencia
Once again Enner struggled with a wide role, when he is clearly more comfortable playing as a central striker. Still kept the City defence on their toes, though.


Substitutes


Diafra Sakho
(replaced Valencia) Well they kept that one quiet! And what a way to announce your return from injury - one rasping volley that grazed the crossbar and a brilliant header to win the game.


Morgan Amalfitano
(replaced Song) Disappointing, in a game you'd expect him to shine in. Usually a good impact sub. Morgan failed to trouble City's defence and spent mouch of the game being admonished by Jenkinson for not tracking back.


Guy Demel
(replaced Nolan) Thrown in as a third centre-half, I can't recall him touching the ball.


Jussi Jaaskelainen
Did not play.


Diego Poyet
Did not play.


Matt Jarvis
Did not play.


Carlton Cole
Did not play.
