West Ham vs Chelsea Player Ratings
Lukasz Fabianski (4/10): Could have and should have stopped Chelsea’s second goal. He got done at the near post from a mason mount volley.
Kurt Zouma (6/10): The former Chelsea man made some really vital blocks in the second half, however, was taken off after due to what looked like a tight hamstring.
Craig Dawson (0/10): Dawson was the best of the West Ham back 3. Played that beautiful ping to Antonio which led to a goal.
Issa Diop (6/10): Did a solid job in defending in the open play. However, two goals conceded never look good on a defender.
Ben Johnson (6/10): Found himself out of position for Chelsea’s second goal. Had to be taken off minutes before half times due to an injury.
Vladimir Coufal (8/10): Coufal was solid defensively and attacked when needed. Backed an assist to his name off Bowen.
Tomas Soucek (5/10): Standard 5 for Soucek. He was pretty much invisible other than the one chance he had early in the first half.
Declan Rice (6/10): A really poor game by his standards. Didn’t have any impact going forward with his passing.
Jarrod Bowen (9/10): Scored an absolute belter from outside the box to bring West Ham level. Took it up a notch after scoring the goal.
Manuel Lanzini (7/10): Didn’t have much of the ball to affect the game offensively. However, took the penalty with ice in his veins and opened the scoring for the Hammers.
Michail Antonio (8/10): Certainly took it up a level in the second half. Linked up well, ran the channels, and caused havoc to the Chelsea defense.
Masuaku (8/10): Was solid defensively and scored an absolute freak off a goal to put West Ham ahead.
Pablo Fornals (0/10): Type your content here
Benrahma : NA
Edouard Mendy) (3/10): Not the usual comfortable evening for Mendy. Arguably the Chelsea keeper was equally as at fault as Jorginho for the incidents that led to West Ham’s penalty. Was completely bamboozled for the third goal.
Andreas Christensen (7/10): Pocketed Michail Antonio in the first half. DIdn’t have the same impact in the second half.
Thiago Silva (9/10): All-round performance from the veteran. Opened the scoring and minutes later made a crucial goal-line clearance.
Antonio Rudiger (6/10): Didn’t have much to do with any of the three goals. Had his moments carrying up the ball in the second half.
Reece James (6/10): Started the game with a spark. However, faded as time went on.
Marcos Alonso (6/10): Nothing much happened for Alonso. The Spaniard failed to make any kind of impact from those wide areas as he usually does.
Jorginho (4/10): Another costly mistake from the Chelsea captain. Jorginho played a really poor ball back to Mendy which led to the West Ham goal.
Loftus-Cheek (8/10): One of his best games in the Premier League for Chelsea. Loftus-Cheek was particularly one of the best players in the second half.
Hakim Ziyech (7/10): Ziyech was one of Chelsea’s most viable options who constantly threatened the opposition box with his deliveries. His assist for Mount was a thing of beauty.
Mason Mount (9/10): Eventful outing for Mason Mount. Whipped in the corner which was headed in by Thiago Silva and followed up with a brilliant side-footed finish to restore Chelsea’s advantage.
Kai Havertz (6/10): Havertz’s evening ended early as the German was taken off at half-time for Lukaku. However, he took some really good positions behind the West Ham defense in the first half.
Romelu Lukaku (6/10): Lukaku had enough minutes to make a meaningful impact, however, was isolated and couldn’t link up with the midfield.
Callum Hudson-Odoi (6/10): The best of the 3 players that came off the bench for the Blues. Hudson-Odoi took some threatening positions wide left.
Christian Pulisic (5/10): Pulisic was really poor after coming on in the second half. The American hardly took a meaningful touch.
