Media Player Ratings- West Ham v Crystal Palace

West Ham managed a 1-1 draw at home against Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace on Tuesday night. Injuries and suspensions significantly limited manager David Moyes’ options, and he would’ve been reasonably pleased with a point that continued the Hammers’ unbeaten start to the New Year in the Premier league.

How did the media view loan signing Joao Mario, who was making his home league debut in front of 56,911 at the London Stadium? How did they see young Sam Byram, having his first league start of the season at right back, with Pablo Zabaleta drafted into midfield to partner Mark Noble? How did Aaron Cresswell, who has done quite well on the left side of a back three under Moyes, fare after being pushed to wingback to cover for the suspended Masuaku?

We’ve collected player ratings from three media outlets below. Joao Mario was the pick of the lot for all three, with Cheikhou Kouyate also having his best game of the season by some distance.
