Benrahma ’73 8/10

Said Benrahma definitely gave David Moyes something to think about ahead of West Ham’s next game. The Algerian was superb in linking up the Hammers attacking play and was unlucky not to grab his first goal for the club. However, if Benrahma is to continue shooting from outside the box, he needs to start hitting the target more.

Antonio 7/10

A quieter night for Antonio. The striker did his job and held up the ball well. However, he never seemed to be a big threat to Leeds. Antonio did make a lot of bursting runs, but like against Man City, the player with the ball either chose a different option or was unable to find him. The main plus point is that it is another game where Antonio did not pick up an injury.

Declan Rice thinks that the performance from West Ham against Leeds was disappointing, however, we tend to disagree.


Jarrod Bowen and Ben Johnson were late substitutions and did their jobs. Bowen was solid at keeping the ball in the Leeds corner and helping the clock tick down. The winger did have a shot that was easy pickings for Meslier. Johnson came on to help solidify the defence but did not have a lot of time to impact the match.

Next. West Ham Interested In The Austrian Peter Crouch. dark

West Ham are next up against second in the league Manchester United. The Hammers will be able to move up into the Champions League spots if they are able to beat the Red Devils. Having said that, United have got the best of David Moyes’ side on two different occasions this season.
