Several West Ham players in Premier League Team of the Week after 2-0 win over Man Utd

West Ham secured their best result of the season so far as they beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United 2-0 on Sunday afternoon. The victory took them to fifth in the league table, tied on points with Leicester and Arsenal but below the duo on goal difference.

A big name scalp often brings recognition in the form of places on the Team of the Week, and four Hammers players have found their names in various pundits’ XI for Game Week 6.

Garth Crooks (BBC): Garth Crooks’ Team of the Week has one West Ham representative- skipper Mark Noble, chosen in a four man midfield alongside James Maddison, Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne.

Crooks also brought to light an interesting stat- West Ham’s win percentage under Manuel Pellegrini with Mark Noble playing is 48%, but it drops to 18% when the veteran medio doesn’t feature.

Jamie Redknapp Team of the Week (DM): Redknapp has a spot for three West Ham players in his TOTW. Noble is present as is left back Aaron Cresswell, who marked his 400th career appearance with a beautiful free kick, and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Redknapp also took notice of Andriy Yarmolenko’s goal, saying that he had heard “great things about him” from the legendary Andriy Shevchenko, and hoped that the winger could stay fit.
