Brilliant Reid, Fantastic Payet – Best And The Worst Rated West Ham Players vs Swansea

published :


West Ham's Slaven Bilic

Slaven Bilic’s side traveled to Wales in order to continue with their recent uptick in form looking for all 3 points. The hosts themselves needed the points desperately to pull them out of the relegation zone, but it was the London side who came away with the maximum points on the night. 

Bob Bradley knew he was on the hot seat and that his job is in real danger, so the Swans were facing a must-win matchup with just 12 points after 17 weeks, but couldn’t get anything going against a West Ham team that looked really focused.

The visitors ended up getting a 4-1 victory at Wales, with 4 different players sending the ball to the bottom of the nets and showing glimpses of what they’re capable of doing during the second half of the season, reaching the eleventh spot on the table. So, it’s time to take a look at each guy’s performance on Bilic’s team.

Darren Randolph 7/10

Randolph finally bounced back from a couple of subpar performances for the Hammers, managing to get 6 key saves and only conceding once.

Havard Nordtveit 7/10

The Norwegian right back had a pretty decent game overall on both ends of the pitch, even managing to record an assist for Michail Antonio’s goal that made it 3-0 at the 78th minute.

Winston Reid 9/10


Reid was once again the man of the match without any kind of doubt, being a complete wall on the defensive side of things. He even managed to get on the scoresheet for the Hammers, showing great leadership.

Angelo Ogbonna 7/10

Ogbonna had a standard game on both ends of the pitch, making some defensives mistakes as usual but managing to save the day with some key interceptions.

Michail Antonio 8/10

Antonio had a quiet game before netting home the 3rd goal, stepping up when he was needed the most.

Cheikhou Kouyate 7/10

It was another day at the office for Kouyate, being very capable on defence and completing over 90% of his passes.

Mark Noble 7/10

The captain had a very good game, especially in the offensive end of the pitch, constantly getting his teammates involved and creating spaces for both Payet and Ayew.

Aaron Cresswell 7/10

Cresswell was very quiet for most of the game but was more than capable of contributing to the defence when Swansea tried to counterattack.

Dimitri Payet 8/10


The Frenchman showed once again that he’s one of the best players in the world right now and was denied a couple of times by Fabianski, but he still managed to set up Reid for the second goal of the day.

Andre Ayew 8/10

The forward opened the scoreboard just 13 minutes into the game and was unstoppable through most of the game until being substituted by Edmilson Fernandes. Having him back and healthy is a great boost for the Hammers.
