Rodney Marsh believes that centre-back Winston Reid was the West Ham man-of-the-match against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Reid, 28, started the match against Palace and helped his side keep a clean sheet in 1-0 victory with a goal from Manuel Lanzini.

The defender played the full 90 minutes with his side dropping to ten-men after Aaron Cresswell was sent off after 76 minutes.

Former Hammers academy man Marsh stated on his personal Twitter account that Reid was the star performer in the clash, claiming if you don’t pick the New Zealand international for the best match performer “you know nothing about football”.

Reid made his ninth appearance for the Hammers in the new campaign, which has seen the east London side start slowly.

The win against Palace marked West Ham’s first victory in five Premier League encounters and they now sit in 15th place in the Premier League table with seven points from eight fixtures.

They face a battle against bottom of the league Sunderland in their next league clash, which Slaven Bilic will see as a good opportunity to push on with another victory.
