West Ham United welcomed Silkeborg at the London Stadium earlier tonight as they looked to grab a positive result in the UEFA Europa Conference League. The Hammers were solid in the first half and managed to open the goal-scoring in the 22nd minute via Manuel Lanzini’s successful penalty. The East London club sat on their lead well and were leading 1-0 at half-time.

David Moyes’ men controlled the game well and secured a narrow 1-0 victory in front of their home supporters.

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

GK: Alphonse Areola – 7/10

The talented keeper made a few solid saves during the game and earned a well-deserved clean sheet at home.

RB: Vladimir Coufal – 6.5/10

He was mostly solid at the back and engineered a good chance in the opposition half.

CB: Ben Johnson – 6/10

Johnson dealt with the danger when needed and would be quite happy with the clean sheet.

CB: Nayef Aguerd – 7/10

Aguerd had a comfortable game on the defensive end of the field and did well to last 76 minutes.
