WEST HAM RATINGS V PALACE

ADRIAN 7

Looked to have more confidence in front of this defence and coped well with the Palace threat. Perhaps he put Benteke off for the penalty. Made a great save from Wickham at the death.

WINSTON REID 8

Back to his best with a battling defensive display. Competed well in the air and was never dominated by the Palace attack. Not bad on one day’s training.

CHEIKHOU KOUYATE 8

Surprisingly dropped back into a three man defence, but thrived there. His ability in the air as well as his footballing skills in the penalty area got the better of Palace. Best display of the season.

ANGELO OGBONNA 6

At times he looked a bit lost and gave the ball away as well as getting booked and just surviving a red card, but when Cresswell went off, he stepped up at left-back and did a decent job.

MICHAIL ANTONIO 6

Forced to play as a wing back, he was a little subdued at times, but did his defensive job ok and began to get forward a little more after the break.

AARON CRESSWELL 8

Great to have him back and he made a huge difference down the left. Got an early shot into the side-netting and then provided the cross for the goal, before a ridiculously mad minute saw him sent off. Disgraceful.

MARK NOBLE 7

Much better display by the captain who seems to thrive playing alongside the more defensively minded Obiang. Was a big presence in the midfield, winning plenty of tackles and getting the team going.

PEDRO OBIANG 8

Once again he showed how invaluable he is to the team. Broke up Palace attacks, kept the ball when it looked like being lost and kept going to the end.

DIMITRI PAYET 6

After two games for France it was perhaps expected that he would not be at his best. Was on the periphery of the game but was still involved in the move that led to the winning goal.

MANUEL LANZINI 8* (Man of the Match)

Hurt Palace with his clever running and passing and was the difference between the sides with a touch of class to score from Cresswell’s cross. Plays in the West Ham way.

SIMONE ZAZA 7

His best display for the Hammers yet. Full of energy and determination, some of his tackling was first class and he held on to the ball much better and even got in a shot.

SUBSTITUTES

EDIMILSON FERNANDES (for Payet, 78) 6

Came on to shore up the midfield for the last 10 minutes or so and did his job efficiently with no fuss.

JONATHAN CALLERI (for Zaza, 86)

Looked sharp and won a couple of free kicks when he came on.

HAVARD NORDTVEIT (for Lanzini, 88)

No time to make a real impression.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
