West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang was named in Who Scored’s Premier League Team of the Week after his side beat Southampton 3-1 last Saturday.
The 24-year-old scored and assisted for the Hammers as they picked up a valuable three points at St Mary’s.
Obiang assisted striker Andy Carroll who levelled the scores after 14 minutes before his shot from outside the box saw his team go into the half-time break with a lead.
It was the first goal the Spaniard had scored this season and a very valuable one because the points help Slaven Bilic’s side move into ninth place in the table after a tricky start to the campaign.
Here is WhoScored giving Obiang a rating of 9.31 for his performance against the Saints.

Obiang has played 25 games in all competitions for the Hammers this season, scoring one goal and providing the same number of assists.
Everton duo Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley were also named alongside Obiang in the team after the Toffees remarkable 6-3 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park.
Belgian international Lukaku scored four goals during that encounter and was given the highest possible rating for his display.
Obiang will be looking to continue his good form when Bilic’s side take on West Brom at the London Stadium next Saturday.
