Players Ratings v Hammers Saka MotM
By Matty Sadler
September 20 2020
Poor performance. Passing wasn't great at times and we looked in trouble every time West Ham put a ball into the box. However, we scored two well-crafted goals. Big three points though with some of the games coming up. Partey and Aouar needed ASAP please.
Leno - 5. A few too many hairy moments for me, including one ball he dropped.
Bellerin - 6. Thought he started brightly but didn't offer enough going forward overall.
Holding - 5. Struggled against Antonio throughout. Looked pretty slow and weak to me. Could've done more to prevent their goal.
Gabriel - 7. Did well. Blocked shots and even played some line-breaking passes. Some might say he got away with a handball though...
Kolasinac - 5. Came in late. Don't think he did a great deal wrong, but he certainly isn't Tierney, who we missed.
Ceballos - 7. First half I wasn't impressed. Passing was off, as was everyone's to be fair. Second half he was much, much better. Assist for the winner and prevented a sure-goal late on.
Xhaka - 6. Played a couple of cracking passes but wasn't able to get his foot on the ball really.
Saka - 7. Thought he was the only highlight in a poor first half. Movement was good though offside a few times. Played two great passes in the build up to our goals. Once in the second half he was guilty of taking too long to release it.
Willian - 5. Never got going. Some poor touches and passes.
Lacazette - 6. Scored. Would like our CF to offer more though.
Aubameyang - 6. Can't recall him having a chance until late on but put in a shift on the left. Great cross for the opener.
Pepe - 5. Didn't do anything.
Nketiah - 6. +1 for scoring.
Luiz - N/A. Not on long.
