Football Insider rates the West Ham players after their 3-1 win against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Darren Randolph 6 – Was let down by a lapse of concentration for the goal conceded. Otherwise comfortable when needed.
Cheikhou Kouyate 2 – Was well out of his depth out of position on the right of the defence. The defender struggled with the pace of Ryan Bertrand, while also offering little going forward.
Winston Reid 5 – Struggled with Manolo Gabbiadini at times. Usually much better.
Jose Fonte 5 – Was at fault for the Southampton goal alongside Kouyate. However, he did make up for it with some important tackles.
Michail Antonio 6 – Unusually quiet on his old stomping ground. A poor display from the often reliable attacker.
Aaron Cresswell 7 – A lot of the West Ham attacks came down the left side. Linked up well with new signing Snodgrass on his flank.
Pedro Obiang 8 – The central midfielder played a delightful ball for Carroll’s goal and then got on the score sheet himself as he smashed the ball home through a number of bodies.
Mark Noble 7 – An assured performance from the Hammers captain in the centre of the park. Played a fine ball into the Southampton box which led to Steven Davis putting it into his own net.
Sofiane Feghouli 6 – A mixed display from the Algerian. Showed some neat touches, while also being wasteful with the ball at times.
Robert Snodgrass 7 – Won the free kick leading to West Ham’s third goal. A solid first start for the January signing.
Andy Carroll 7 – The towering striker scored a sweet goal in the first half to put his side back on level terms.
Manuel Lanzini (For Carroll 56 minutes) – 6
James Collins (For Kouyate 71 minutes) – 6
Jonathan Calleri (For Feghouli 90 minutes) – 6
