West Ham United entertained Leeds United at the London Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn a good result at home in the Premier League. The Hammers made a slow start to the contest and conceded the opening goal in the 17th minute when Rodrigo Moreno found the back of the net. Declan Rice equalised for the East London club just after the half-hour mark as the two teams went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.

Jarrod Bowen have West Ham the lead in the 72nd minute before Manuel Lanzini killed the game off in injury time. The match ended with West Ham securing an impressive 3-1 victory in front of their home fans.

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

GK: Lukasz Fabianski – 7/10

He made a couple of solid saves at the back but won’t be happy about conceding an early goal.

RB: Vladimir Coufal – 7/10

Coufal performed his defensive duties well and made one key chance in the final third.

CB: Kurt Zouma – 6/10

The Frenchman made a couple of important clearances in the first half and was replaced at half-time.

CB: Angelo Ogbonna – 7/10

The Italian defender was a dominant presence in the air and made a lot of crucial clearances inside his half.
