West Ham United welcomed Anderlecht at the London Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to earn a good result in front of their home fans in the UEFA Europa Conference League. The Hammers made a quick start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 14th minute courtesy of Said Benrahma’s free-kick. Jarrod Bowen doubled West Ham’s lead just 16 minutes later as West Ham were leading 2-0 at half-time.

Anderlecht scored a late consolation goal via Sebastiano Esposito’s successful effort from the penalty spot but David Moyes’ men ended up winning the contest by a narrow 2-1 scoreline.

Let’s take a look at how each West Ham United player fared during the match against Anderlecht.

GK: Alphonse Areola – 6/10

The Hammers’ goalie will be disappointed after conceding a late goal.

CB: Ben Johnson – 6.5/10

He tried his best to keep things solid at the back.

CB: Angelo Ogbonna – 6.5/10

The Italian defender didn’t do much wrong when defending inside his half but had to be taken off due to an injury in the first half.

CB: Aaron Cresswell – 7/10

Cresswell did his fair share of defending and made a decent chance in the final third.
