West Ham will be delighted to grab a late win against Crystal Palace thanks to man of the match Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet. But who stood out?

Adrian 6

Nearly got to Cabaye’s penalty but didn’t have much else to do.

Carl Jenkinson 7

Got forward really well, of course got the goal, but the challenge on Gayle for the penalty was silly.

James Collins 7

Grew into the game after a slow start.

James Tomkins 7

Solid as ever from Tomkins but was caught a few times by the pace of Gayle early on.

Aaron Cresswell 7

Good display from Cresswell who isn’t fully fit. Got forward well.

Cheikhou Kouyate 7

Comfortable in the centre of midfield and tried to dictate play

Mark Noble 7

Worked hard and kept the moves flowing, subbed for change of system.

Manuel Lanzini 9

Lanzini was excellent in the Hammers’ midfield and found pockets to work his magic. Late goal was the cherry on top.

Dimitri Payet 8

At times frustrating for Payet but Kelly played him well. Still moments of brilliance from the signing of the seasoN summed up with his goal.

Victor Moses 8

Good display from Moses who got passed his man a lot and his final ball was better than most.

Diafra Sakho 7

Worked hard but couldn’t really find much room against Scott Dann.


Andy Carroll 8

Was a handful straight away when coming on and set up the winner brilliantly.

Mauro Zarate 6

Looked lively but his final ball let him down.

Nikica Jelavic 6
