West Ham United entertained Arsenal at the London Stadium earlier today as they hoped to secure a good result at home in the Premier League. The Hammers made a poor start to the game and conceded two early goals as Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard got their names on the scoresheet for the visitors. However, West Ham found a lifeline in the 33rd minute when Said Benrahma converted his penalty. David Moyes’ men went into the half-time interval 2-1 down on the scoreline.

Jarrod Bowen equalised for West Ham in the 54th minute as the contest finished with the Hammers earning a hard-fought 2-2 draw in the London derby.

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

GK: Lukasz Fabianski – 6.5/10

He made a few solid saves at the back but won’t be pleased after conceding two early goals.

RB: Vladimir Coufal – 7/10

Coufal gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and managed to create some decent chances going forward.

CB: Kurt Zouma – 6.5/10

The Frenchman did his fair share of defending and was a threat at the other end of the field as well.

CB: Thilo Kehrer – 7/10

He was mostly solid at the back and was a good presence on the ball.

LB: Aaron Cresswell – 6.5/10

Cresswell performed his defensive duties well and managed to engineer some promising chances from the left flank.

CM: Thomas Soucek – 6.5/10

He anchored the midfield well at times but offered very little going forward.

CM: Declan Rice – 7/10

Rice offered adequate protection for his teammates at the back but failed to threaten the Arsenal goal.

CM: Lucas Paqueta – 7/10

He earned the penalty for West Ham in the first half and was a real handful for the opposition defenders.

RW: Jarrod Bowen – 7.5/10

Bowen worked hard at both ends of the field and won his fair share of aerial duels. He scored the equaliser for the Hammers in the 54th minute.

ST: Michail Antonio – 6.5/10

He led the line well on his own and was unfortunate to hit the crossbar.

LW: Said Benrahma – 7.5/10

Benrahma caused a few headaches for his marker and managed to score from the penalty spot in the first half.


CM: Flynn Downes – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to influence the game.

ST: Maxwel Cornet – N/A

Cornet came on for the final few minutes of the derby.

LW: Pablo Fornals – N/A

He was accurate with his passing.
