West Ham 1-1 Man City: Player Ratings As Poor Ratings Rock Guardiola’s Men

Michail Antonio put West Ham in front in the first half with a fine finish, before Manchester City half-time substitute Phil Foden struck early in the second period – however, neither side could claim victory.

Below are player ratings from the London Stadium.

West Ham

Lukasz Fabianski 7 – Brilliant 86th-minute save to deny Sterling in a one-on-one and Mahrez after.

Vladimir Coufal 7 – Quick reactions to nip in and stop Dias profiting from Gundogan’s superb ball into the box. Superb assist for Antonio.

Fabien Balbuena 6 – Not onto the scene quickly enough as Foden makes himself the Manchester City hero.

Angelo Ogbonna 6 – Far too slow to react as substitute Foden steadies himself from Cancelo’s pass and scores.

Aaron Cresswell 6 – Super cross soon after Antonio’s goal from which Fornals should have made it 2-0.

Arthur Masuaku 5 – Poor decisions in the second half – one of which could have led to Sterling scoring the winner.

Jared Bowen 6 – Good industry in the first half and big shoes to fill stepping in for Antonio. Too big.

Tomas Soucek 8 – Escaped a hand-ball shout in the build up for Antonio’s goal. Overall did well.

Declan Rice 9 MOTM – The dropped points do not detract from a fine performance from the England midfieler.

Pablo Fornals 6 – Should have done better with his header from Cresswell’s first half cross into the box.

Michail Antonio 8 – Magnificent goal. Truly top class volley to leave City stunned and give West Ham the lead. Third of the season.

SUBS: Yarmolenko 6 (Antonio, 51), Haller 4 (Bowen, 68)

Man City

Ederson 6 – It needed something special to beat him on his 150th appearance and Antonio provided it.

Kyle Walker 6 – Good deliveries overall and did well to react in difficult moments defensively.

Rúben Dias 7 – Snuffed out by Coufal when he should have converted from Gundogan’s fine 14th-minute pass. But did well overall.

Eric García 7 – Brilliant 23rd-minute defending to keep pace with Antonio and get to the ball to prevent a second.

Jose Cancelo 8 – Tasty 24th minute ball from which Mahrez should have scored. Fine assist for Foden goal.

Bernardo Silva 7 – Quick feet in the box midway through the first half but unable to unsettle the Hammers defence.

Rodri 6 – Solid in midfield but outshone by the excellent Declan Rice who dominated throughout.

Ilkay Gündogan 6 – Fine 14th minute ball from which Dias should have scored. But ref Anthony Taylor clearly forgot to book him for his first half shirt-pull on Rice.

Riyad Mahrez 6 – Slow to react when he could have stuck Cancelo’s first-half ball away.

Sergio Agüero 5 – Wanted it to feet far too much in the first half. A shadow of his deadly self.

Raheem Sterling 6 – Most of his moves covered by Coufal. But gifted a late opening which he blew.
