0 GettyImages 1318924091

Darran Randolph – Received a late call-up following Lukasz Fabianski’s injury and had no chance with Tomas Soucek’s own goal. Under constant pressure at set-pieces but did well to withstand the deliveries. Made an important second-half save with the scores level. 6

Vladimir Coufal – Another consistent performance from the right-back. Week in, week out Coufal is Mr. Realiable for West Ham and today was no different. What a signing this man has been. 7

Angelo Ogbonna – Stood up well to the physical challenge of Hal Robson-Kanu and won a number of important headers as West Brom launched corners, throw-ins, and crosses into the box. Scored the second Hammers goal from close range to cap off a fine evening. 7

Craig Dawson – Made a number of big blocks and headed clearances against his former side. A solid return to The Hawthorns. 6

Aaron Cresswell – A mixed night, almost gifted the Baggies a goal at one end with a wild swipe at the ball but moments later smashed the post from a long-range free-kick. Good delivery from set-pieces as usual from the left-back leading to his eighth assist of the season. 6

Declan Rice – Missed a golden chance to open the scoring in the first few minutes after seeing his penalty hit the post. Recovered well, and was consistently excellent in midfield. 6

Tomas SoucekAn eventful evening for the midfielder after heading into his own net to give West Brom the lead and then tapping home the Hammers equaliser later in the first half. An important part of West Ham’s team in both attack and defence. 7

Pablo Fornals – A disappointing night for the Spaniard, gave the ball away on a number of occasions and too slow to get his shots off. Played an important role in Antonio’s goal with a quick run and pass into Lingard. 5

Said Benrahma (off 72) – Laid it on a plate for Soucek to tap home and threatened with a couple of shots from distance. Felt harsh to take him off over the likes of Lingard and Fornals. 6

Jesse Lingard – A mostly anonymous night for the England man, lucky to stay on the pitch when Benrahma was subbed after offering little in attack. But played the perfect weighted pass into Antonio for the striker to score West Ham’s third. 6

Michail Antonio – Wasted a golden chance inside one minute when hesitant over his shot and was fortunate to win a penalty as a result of running into Sam Johnstone. A constant physical presence up front and held the ball up well. Finished with confidence to make it 3-1 and seal the win. 7

Subs:

Bowen (on 72) – Brought pace and directness to West Ham’s attack. 6
