West Ham United entertained Wolverhampton Wanderers at the London Stadium earlier today as they looked to earn all three points on the road. The Hammers made a bright start to the game but were held to a goalless draw at the half-time break.

Tomas Soucek finally broke the deadlock in the 59th minute when he put West Ham ahead from close range. The Hammers sat on their lead well and secured a narrow 1-0 win in front of their home supporters.

Let’s take a look at how each West Ham player performed during the match against Wolves.

GK: Łukasz Fabiański – 6.5/10

The Polish keeper had to make one save in the game and earned an easy clean sheet at the London Stadium.

RB: Ben Johnson – 6.5/10

He was solid when defending at the back and made one good run down the right flank.

CB: Craig Dawson – 7.5/10

Dawson made plenty of important clearances inside his half and was strong in the air.

CB: Kurt Zouma – 8/10

The Frenchman won his fair share of aerial duels and cleared the danger plenty of times to keep the opposition at bay.
