Joy at last for the Hammers, but who was our starman?
WEST HAM RATINGS
DAVID MARTIN 8
Only two shots on target to deal with but did so much more with his coolness under some intense pressure.
RYAN FREDERICKS 7
His pace got him out of trouble at times, but had a tough time against Djeneopo. Held his nerve.
AARON CRESSWELL 7
Coped well as Southampton came at the Hammers defence in the closing stages. Is in decent form at the moment in defence and attack.
FABIAN BALBUENA 7
Beginning to find his feet again and looked the part in this game with some timely tackles and cool play.
ANGELO OGBONNA 8
Continues to play at the top of his game. Good headers away and some strong challenges helped keep the clean sheet.
MARK NOBLE 7
Worked so hard as usual. He got things moving with some telling passes and tackles and was an inspiration.
DECLAN RICE 6
Lost the ball acouple of times, but generally won it back. Scored with a header, but disallowed.
ROBERT SNODGRASS 7
Had a hand in the goal with a good cross and was always a willing runner. Booked again and now suspended.
PABLO FORNALS 8
Had another excellent game. Denied a goal by a brilliant save and got the assist for the goal, his third in four games.
MICHAIL ANTONIO 9*
Breathtaking, swashbuckling, brilliant performance where he never stopped running and battling. Helped make the goal and deserved his own.
SEBASTIEN HALLER 9
Great to see him playing up front with someone else and getting the service he has been starved of. Scored and could have had a couple more.
ANDRIY YARMOLENKO 5
Could have cost the win with ridiculous drag back which led to a disallowed equaliser. Missed a good chance.
CARLOS SANCHEZ 6
Came on to try and keep things tight at the back in the closing stages and just about managed it.
