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?
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
