Jarrod Bowen 4/10

What has happened to Jarrod Bowen. The English winger has looked a shadow of his early-season self. Against Manchester United in the first-half, Bowen lacked any ability to control the ball and cost the Hammers a couple of opportunities to break on the home side.

Bowen did improve with the attacking changes and did start linking up the player better. However, the winger is missing that cutting edge that made him so effective earlier in the campaign.

Michail Antonio 5/10

Not a good game for Antonio. The striker did have a bright start to the match and was looking to take on Aaron Wan-Bissaka multiple times. That early eagerness quickly slowed down and Antonio struggled to really impact the game for the rest of the match.

Antonio is a unique forward but without support or any real opportunity to run in behind can really stop his effectiveness. Another reason why the club must sign a striker in the summer transfer window.


Manuel Lanzini & Said Benrahma 61′

The two attacking midfielders added some much needed impetuous into the West Ham team. Lanzini and Benrahma caused a lot more worry to the Manchester United defence in their half-hour cameos than Antonio or Bowen did for the whole match.

West Ham are now three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, and while they have a game in hand are further behind on goal difference. Next up for the Hammers is Arsenal at the London Stadium next Sunday before the international break.
