West Ham player ratings: Bowen superb as Zouma gives nothing away

W

est Ham dented Manchester City’s Premier League title charge as they drew 2-2 with the defending champions on Sunday afternoon.

Here’s how David Moyes’ side rated at the London Stadium…

Lukasz Fabianski 8

Undone by deflection for Grealish goal, then made smart stop to keep out Silva strike. Penalty save could yet prove one of season’s defining moments.

Vladimir Coufal 5

Looked distraught and glancing free-kick into his own net with no City player near him.

Craig Dawson 6

Should’ve done better with early headed chance. Unlucky to see deflection carry Grealish’s strike past Fabianski and made several crucial blocks before conceding penalty.

Kurt Zouma 8

Two outstanding interventions to deny Jesus in first-half and gave nothing away.

Aaron Cresswell 7

Did well against Mahrez, with City’s best moments coming on opposite flank.

Declan Rice 7

First tackle on De Bruyne greeted with huge roar and did a decent job against the in-form Belgian, curbing own attacking instincts.

Tomas Soucek 8

Superb in shielding the back four and himself dropping into it at times to make vital challenges in the box. Back to his best after rest at Norwich.

Pablo Fornals 7

Superb vision and instinctive pass to create Bowen opener. Grafted as hard as ever.

Manuel Lanzini 6

Relatively quiet afternoon for the Argentine before being replaced for Noble’s farewell.

Jarrod Bowen 9

Took his 11th Premier League goal of the season brilliantly from a tight angle after rounding Ederson, then scored 12th with another smart finish. Booked for cynical foul on Jack Grealish, who will surely soon be an England teammate.

Michail Antonio 7

Gave Fernandinho major problems whenever given the chance to run into space and set up Bowen’s second but wasted brilliant chance to score third himself.

Substitutes

Mark Noble ( Lanzini 77’)

Said he wasn’t bothered whether or not he played but got on for a deserved farewell appearance on an emotional day.

Ben Johnson (Fornals 90’)

Andriy Yarmolenko (Antonio 90’)

Afforded a slightly more low-key final home outing.

Unused: Areola, Masuaku, Fredericks, Johnson, Kral, Vlasix, Oko-Flex, Yarmolenko
