Player Ratings

Adrian
Went a little too early for the penalty but redeemed himself with a stunning save five minutes from time.


Carl Jenkinson
Got forward as often as possible and could (should?) have scored with one of his two chances in the opening quarter-of-an-hour. defensively sound, for the most.


Aaron Cresswell
Like Jenkinson provided a real threat out wide. Got caught out of position once or twice but that's the flip side to employing attacking full backs.


Winston Reid
Put his body on the line time and time again with someexcellent tackles and interventions. Lucky not to concede a penalty for a clear hand ball, though.


James Tomkins
Since he was forced to apologise for feigning injury against Everton, Tomkins has been excellent. He was solid again today and was unfortunate to be penalised for Johnson's cheating.


Kevin Nolan
A solid if unspectacular shift in the centre of the park. As usual he worked his socks off to protect the back four and help launch attacking forays.


Cheikhou Kouyate
Still struggling to replicate his early season form. A couple of early mistakes could have proved costly, although he grew into the game.


Alex Song
He is the difference between West Ham being fourth or tenth and sees passes no-one else in the squad is capable of. Whether it's cheeky little backheels in midfield or playing his way out of danger from inside his own six yard box, Song is simply a joy to watch.


Stewart Downing
Every counter attack goes through Downing - and there were plenty yesterday. Another great goal identical to his two others this season.


Andy Carroll
Worked like a Trojan for scant reward. Probably no less effective than last week against Swansea, but he missed two great second half chances to score.


Diafra Sakho
Well off the pace today. A bad day at the office for our leading goalscorer, but nothing to be concerned about.


Substitutes


Enner Valencia
(replaced Nolan) Barely had an impact on the game suring his 14 minutes on the pitch. Good to see both him and Sakho back however after recent injury.


Jussi Jaaskelainen
Did not play.


James Collins
Did well shoring up things.


Joey O Brien
Did not play.


Morgan Amalfitano
Did not play.


Mauro Zarate
Did not play.


Carlton Cole
Did not play.
