West Ham United locked horns with Anderlecht at Lotto Park earlier this evening as they looked to earn a good result on the road. The Hammers made a solid start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Gianluca Scamacca finally broke the deadlock in the 79th minute with a great finish as David Moyes’ men earned a narrow 1-0 win in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

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

GK: Alphonse Areola – 7/10

The Hammers’ keeper made a couple of decent saves at the back and earned an important clean sheet on the road.

CB: Ben Johnson – 7/10

He produced a solid display on the defensive end of the pitch and will be quite happy with the shutout.

CB: Craig Dawson – 7/10

Dawson didn’t put a foot wrong when defending inside his half.

CB: Angelo Ogbonna – 6.5/10

Ogbonna produced a commanding display at the back and didn’t hesitate to put his body on the line when needed.
