West Ham player ratings vs Sevilla: Soucek and Yarmolenko seal progress in Europa League

Alphonse Areola – Made a world-class save in the first half to deny Youssef En-Nesyri form ten yards. Did well under pressure from a couple of set-pieces and made some important saves. 8

Ben Johnson – Urged to stay wide by David Moyes the right-back did just that and got forward well in attack and looked comfortable in defence. 8

Craig Dawson – To say the Sevilla attackers did not like the physical side of Dawson’s game is an understatement, not great on the ball but excellent in the air and in the tackle. 8

Kurt Zouma – Calmness in possession and reading of the game as good as ever. 8

Aaron Cresswell – Wasted a number of set-pieces but looked comfortable in defence. Came out on top when up against Jesus Navas and Jesus Corona. 7

Declan Rice – The heartbeat of his team, led by example. Another huge performance from the captain. 8

Tomas Soucek – Vintage Soucek for the opening goal, rose way above his marker and headed in, had been getting forward well and deserved his goal. 9

Pablo Fornals (off 118′) – Gave the ball away at times but looked to create and progress West Ham up the pitch, never stopped running and got better as the game went on. It was his shot that led to Yarmolenko’s winner. 8

Manuel Lanzini (off 114′) – As with Fornals was wasteful at times in possession and picked up a silly first-half booking. 7

Said Benrahma (off 88′) – Should have had another assist to his name with a delightfully disguised pass into Antonio. Worked hard in defence helping Cresswell out. 7

Michail Antonio (off 120′) – Considering he was a major doubt for the game Antonio put in an excellent shift. Should have scored in the first-half but redeemed himself with an excellent shift. Worked incredibly hard. 7


Andriy Yarmolenko (on 88′) – West Ham’s match-winner for the second game running, simple finish but he was alive to the danger and tapped home. 8

Mark Noble (on 114′) – n/a

Issa Diop on (118′) – n/a

Ryan Fredericks on (120′) – n/a
