West Ham player ratings vs Liverpool (A)- How did the Hammers perform at Anfield?

West Ham slumped to a 4-1 loss at Anfield on Saturday– a disappointing, but not unexpected result for most fans. Liverpool crossed 100 goals for the season across all competitions during the game and West Ham’s solitary strike came from Michail Antonio, who netted 70 seconds after coming on as a second half sub.

How did Patrice Evra fare on his debut for the Hammers, with the Liverpool fans booing every touch of his given the French defender’s past history with ex Reds player Luis Suarez? How did Manuel Lanzini go on his return from injury?

Most of the papers seem to agree that Marko Arnautovic was West Ham’s best player at Anfield, and rightly so. The Austrian tested Karius with a couple of good efforts in the first half and did his best despite playing alone upfront. Antonio, a second half replacement for Lanzini, was their second best player on the park.

Angelo Ogbonna, who has been one the mainstays of the back three under Moyes, had an off-day at Anfield, as shown by the ratings.

Three of four ratings thought Kouyate was better than Mark Noble. The solitary exception, Football.London, also thought that Joao Mario was off colour, and we agree that this was one of the Portuguese international’s poorer games in a West Ham jersey.
