West Ham ratings vs WBA: Antonio leads the way as Cresswell shines

The Hammers took the lead on the cusp of half-time as Jarrod Bowen turned in Vladimir Coufal’s first-time cross off his chest. Matheus Pereira fired the visitors level shortly after the break before Antonio showed great movement to swivel and finish from Andriy Yarmolenko’s header.

Here is how Jack Rosser rated the Hammers…

Could do nothing about the West Brom goal, reacted well when Ogbonna nearly headed into his own net.

Could’ve killed someone with the power he put on the cross for Bowen’s goal, but did well to get it in first time.

Clean sheet streak lost but didn’t do too much wrong against his former side.

Largely solid again but perhaps could have done more to stop Pereira for West Brom’s goal.

A real threat from crosses all evening, good ball to find Yarmolenko in the build-up to Antonio’s goal.

Unlucky not to score tonight. Continues to look solid in midfield but is becoming more and more creative.

Not one of his best performances but give everything as always. Maybe a touch tired.

After shoddy finishing against Burnley, Bowen showed a fine streak of creativity to finish with his chest when opening the scoring. Never stopped running.

Given his chance after some impressive displays off the bench. Unlucky not to have a second goal of the season when Dara O’Shea headed off the line from his effort.

Maybe his best showing in a West Ham shirt. Unlucky to be hooked on the hour mark after some good work in the build-up to Bowen’s goal.

Looked sharp once more, wrestled well with the Baggies’ back line and showed great movement to get in position to finish for his goal.

Gave Cresswell someone to aim for with his crosses and did well to nod down for Antonio to set up the winner.

Not as creative as either Lanzini or Benrahma but a safe pair of hands with lots of energy in midfield.
