Premier League outfit West Ham United picked up what could prove to be an important point over the course of the season after drawing 1-1 against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side. The Hammers took an early lead at the London Stadium thanks to a quite brilliant goal by Michail Antonio. Although Phil Foden equalised for the Citizens, solid defensive performances from a number of West Ham players ensured that the European heavyweights travelled back to Manchester with just a point to show for their efforts.
Here Are The West Ham United Player Ratings Vs Manchester City:
West Ham United Player Ratings Vs Manchester City
Lukasz Fabianski – 8
The Hammers’ keeper made several smart saves to hold the City onslaught out for the most part. Was rather helpless concerning Foden’s goal but positioned himself efficiently.
Vladimir Coufal – 7
The Czech defender tried to get forward and help out in attack whenever possible but wasn’t able to have too much of an impact. Dealt with the pressure of Sterling quite well in the second half.
Fabian Balbuena – 8
The centre-half stepped up and dealt with the City pressure on multiple occasions over the ninety, while he managed to make some key interceptions as well. Played some good passes out too.
Angelo Ogbonna – 7
The defender should’ve arguably done a better job dealing with the attack that led to Foden’s goal, but he put himself about effectively. Worked hard to ensure that City didn’t have a free run at goal.
Aaron Cresswell – 7
The makeshift centre-half used his pace and experience very well against what is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous attacks in the league. Like his partners, made some vital tackles.
Arthur Masuaku – 9
The speedster was rock solid in defence for the entirety of the tie, as he didn’t allow Mahrez too much room to run into. Made a couple of excellent dribbles and tried to make his presence felt in attack too.
Jarrod Bowen – 6.5
The speedster picked up some dangerous positions in the final third, but he wasn’t able to produce the quality that they were looking for. Needs to add more end product to his game to excel.
Tomas Soucek – 7
The midfielder had multiple key touches in the core of the side, while his general work-rate was right up there with the best too. Was never shy to get on the ball and make things happen in attack either.
Declan Rice – 7
The Englishman’s performance was typical of his usual displays, as he made sure that City didn’t have progress easy in the middle of the park. Got on the ball and linked up play as well.
Pablo Fornals – 6
Probably the one player on the pitch who left the Hammers coach asking for more, Fornals never really managed to penetrate the City back-line offensively. Did track back and defend well at times though.
Michail Antonio – 7.5
The Englishman scored yet another vital goal for the Hammers as he gave them an important 1-0 lead in the first half. Held the ball up well and tried to bring his teammates into the game.
Andriy Yarmolenko – 4
The speedster was thrown on in the second half by David Moyes, and it must be conceded that he was the worst player on the pitch. Needlessly gave possession away time and again.
Sebastien Haller – 6
Tried to make use of his physicality in the final third but to no real effect. Came on when City actually began to pile on the pressure in attack.
