West Ham United entertained AEK Larnaca at the London Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a positive result at home in the UEFA Europa Conference League. The Hammers made a bright start to the game as they took the lead in the 20th minute when Gianluca Scamacca found the back of the net. David Moyes’ men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Jarrod Bowen scored a quick-fire brace early in the second half before Divin Mubama put the contest to bed in the 65th minute. West Ham ended up securing a dominant 4-0 win on the night and a 6-0 victory on aggregate.

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

GK: Alphonso Areola – 7.5/10

He made a few decent saves at the back and earned a solid clean sheet at the London Stadium.

RB: Ben Johnson – 5/10

Johnson struggled to give a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and produced a lackluster display going forward.

CB: Kurt Zouma – 6.5/10

The Frenchman did his best to keep things solid at the back and did enough to bag the clean sheet.

CB: Angelo Ogbonna – 7/10

Ogbonna organised his backline well and performed well enough defensively to restrict the opposition from scoring tonight.

LB: Aaron Cresswell – 6.5/10

He was far from convincing when defending inside his half and picked up an assist for setting up one of Bowen’s goals.

CM: Lucas Paqueta – 6/10

Paqueta worked hard but struggled to dictate the tempo of the game.

CM: Tomas Soucek – 7.5/10

He was strong in the air and was a real menace in the Larnaca half.

RW: Jarrod Bowen – 8.5/10

Bowen scored two quick goals in the second half which put West Ham in a comfortable position to win this game. He deserved to be named the man of the match.

CAM: Pablo Fornals – 7.5/10

The Spanish sensation caused a lot of problems for the opposition defenders but didn’t do enough to register a goal.

LW: Manuel Lanzini – 8/10

Lanzini worked his socks off and linked up play really well with his teammates in the final third.

ST: Gianluca Scamacca – 8/10

The Italian striker was a real handful for the Larnaca centre-backs. He managed to get his name on the scoresheet in the 20th minute.


ST: Divin Mubama – 7.5/10

He came off the bench and scored a good goal in the 65th minute.

ST: Danny Ings – 6/10

Ings didn’t do enough to register a goal.

RW: Maxwel Cornet – 6/10

He didn’t do much after coming off the bench.

CM: Freddie Potts – 6/10

Potts added some energy to Moyes’ midfield.

CB: Levi Laing – 5.5/10

He looked shaky at the back.
