West Ham United locked horns with Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier today as they hoped to grind out a good result on their travels in the Premier League. The Hammers made a solid start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the 38th minute when Marcus Rashford scored with a great header. The East London club went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

David Moyes’ men tried to come up with a response in the second 45 minutes but ended up crashing to a 1-0 defeat at the Theatre of Dreams.

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

GK: Łukasz Fabiański – 6/10

The Polish keeper should have done better to prevent Marcus Rashford’s goal.

RB: Thilo Kehrer – 6.5/10

Kehrer gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and made one good run with the ball in the Man United half.

CB: Craig Dawson – 6/10

He made a few crucial clearances at the back but could have passed the ball a bit better out from the back.

CB: Kurt Zouma – 6.5/10

The French centre-back cleared his lines when needed but will be disappointed after conceding a goal late in the first half.

LB: Aaron Cresswell – 6/10

He did his fair share of defending and made one good chance in the final third. However, Cresswell was a bit wasteful with his crossing from the left flank.

CM: Tomas Soucek – 6.5/10

Soucek anchored the midfield with conviction but offered very little in the opponent’s half.

CM: Declan Rice – 7/10

The England international earned the ball twice and had a few lively moments on the attacking end of the field.

RW: Jarrod Bowen – 6/10

Bowen threatened the opposition goal a couple of times but failed to register a goal.

CAM: Flynn Downes – 6/10

He made one key chance in the final third but had a quiet game during his time on the field.

LW: Said Benrahma – 7/10

Benrahma showed a few flashes of what he is capable of but was toothless in front of the Man United goal.

ST: Gianluca Scamacca – 6/10

Scamacca failed to cause problems for the opposition defenders and was replaced just before the hour mark.


GK: Alphonse Areola – 6.5/10

Areola kept a clean sheet in the second half.

ST: Michail Antonio – 6/10

He added some pace to David Moyes’ attack.

CAM: Pablo Fornals – 6/10

The Spaniard made one key chance in the final third.
