West Ham player ratings v Liverpool: Attacking duo get 8/10
By Will Butcher
Football Insider rates the West Ham players after they drew 2-2 to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League.
Darren Randolph 5 – Fumbled a cross at full stretch when he should have punched it away, leaving Divock Origi with the simple job of tapping in. Made up for it slightly with a wonder save from a long-range Jordan Henderson effort.
Havard Nordtveit 6 – A good display when you consider he was playing out of position.
Winston Reid 6 – Not tight enough to Lallana for his early goal, but was firm with Divock Origi and kept him quiet.
Angelo Ogbonna 7 – A number of superb blocks and clearances from the Italy international meant it was a good day at the office.

Aaron Cresswell 6 – Solid performance from the left-back, but failed to do anything significant and misplaced the odd pass.
Mark Noble 7 – Played with his heart on his sleeve as he so often does. Twinned an impressive array of short and long passing with the willingness to put his body on the line.
Pedro Obiang 7 – Worked hard alongside Noble as he tried to keep the likes of Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum quiet.
Michail Antonio 8 – Pounced on some terrible, nervous Liverpool defending as Antonio ghosted in to flick beyond Karius. First goal of the season that is not a header, after scoring six in the air.
Manuel Lanzini 6 – Did little throughout the match, as Liverpool dominated possession.
Dimitri Payet 8 – Equalised with a trademark free-kick that Loris Karius would have been disappointed to have conceded. Showed signs that he was returning to the form of last season.
Andre Ayew 6 – Quiet day for the £20million summer signing, as he failed to have an impact. Was lazy in getting back to support Havard Nordtveit on the right.
Andy Carroll (For Andre Ayew, 62 mins) 6
