West Ham were defeated comfortably by Brighton 3-0 at the Olympic Stadium. This means manager Slaven Bilic will come under serious pressure from fans to be sacked after failing to beat a promotion side at home. The Hammers were not only defeated but comfortably defeated from The Seagulls. Goals in either half from Glenn Murray and a wonder strike in the first half from Jose Izquierdo saw them lose.

West Ham players rated and slated in defeat:

Joe Hart (5):

The England keeper will have thought he could have done more for the first and second goal. He seemed to take a while to get across to Murray’s header. For Izquierdo’s goal, he got a hand to it but not a strong enough one to keep it out.

Pablo Zabaleta (5):

The Argentinian full-back was terrorized by Izquierdo. He struggled to get up the right flank and support Michail Antonio and when he did he failed to put in a good delivery.

Winston Reid (6):

The New Zealand centre-half made some good tackles and interceptions. But he had a particularly tough evening to deal with Murray.

Jose Fonte (5):

Fonte failed to deal with Murray. He looked like he struggles to work out how to deal with the physicality of Murray.

Artur Masuaku (5):

The French full-back had a torrid game dealing with the back to form Anthony Knockaert. He struggled to deal with the French winger’s directness and also when he peeled off and ran inside he failed to track him which nearly cost a goal.

Michail Antonio (5.5):

Did not do an awful lot. He made a couple of runs at Gaetan Bong but Izquierdo came back to double on him and make it extremely difficult for him to make any headway down the right flank.

Cheikhou Kouyaté (4):

The central midfielder struggled to keep up with the battle in midfield with Brighton’s Davy Propper and Dale Stephens. He was then substituted at halftime for Andre Ayew.

Pedro Obiang (6):

The midfielder did well to battle in the midfield with The Seagulls central midfield pair. He had a couple of effort which were blocked and tried to get them on the front foot.

Manuel Lanzini (6):

Not the best game from the usually very creative Argentinian. His only chance came from two free-kicks. The first 60 minutes put his free-kick ten yards over the bar. The second was deflected just wide of the left post.

Marko Arnautović (4):

The Austrian had a very game. He struggled to get past the 37-year-old Bruno. When he did he put in some very poor deliveries.

Javier Hernandez (5):

The Mexican striker had a particularly quiet evening. He struggled against the very physical Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk. He did have one chance when he was left unmarked at the back post but as he was gonna shoot it was blocked by Gaetan Bong.

Substitutes:

Andre Ayew (3)– The Ghanaian international winger failed to do a lot hence the low rating.
