West Ham United 1-0 Sunderland: Player Ratings

Sunderland lost to West Ham at Upton Park, here’s how the lads played.

Vito Mannone – 6

Made a good save from Noble’s shot and didn’t really have much to do the rest of the game. His kicking seems to be getting worse.

Patrick Van Aanholt – 4

His individual error led to Antonio’s goal. He attacked well as usual and defensively he was sound apart from his horrendous mistake, but ultimately that cost Sunderland a point.

DeAndre Yedlin– 6

Much like Van Aanholt, he was ok defensively and in attack we got forward well but his crossing and decisions weren’t the best apart from one cut back where Rodwell should have scored.

John O’Shea– 7

O’Shea and Kone had another great game as centre back partners. West Ham created very little through the middle.

Lamine Kone – 7

Much the same as O’Shea, Kone had another solid afternoon keeping West Ham forwards quiet for the majority of the game.

Jan Kirchhoff – 8

Kept the ball moving all game and generally looks composed on the ball at all times. He played the pass to Yedlin which cut open West Ham and that should have led to the equaliser.

Lee Cattermole – 6

He played a great ball over the top for Defoe early in the second half. He was used in the more advanced midfield role but he doesn’t make the right decisions often enough in attacking areas.

Yann M’Vila – 5

Just ok from M’Vila, he didn’t create anything and he tried to force things to much.

Wahbi Khazri – 4

His deliveries weren’t good enough as his corners were either too deep or they didn’t beat the first man. His attempted rabona was atrocious especially in the area he was in.

Dame N’Doye– 5

Doesn’t look comfortable playing out wide and not enough quality to warrant a starting place.

Jermain Defoe– 5

He missed a great chance early in the second half but he was starved of quality service.

Jack Rodwell– 6 (sub)

He came on for Cattermole and got forward well and should have scored at least one goal and probably two in all honesty.

Man Of The Match – Jan Kirchhoff
