West Ham player ratings

Given - A largely quiet night with one excellent tip over the bar. 7

Zabaleta - Offered quality when joining the attack and solid in defence. Justified his selection. 7.5

Toure - Looks completely at home and growing in stature with the captaincy. 8

Lescott - Struggled with the impressive Cole and one or two mistakes which could have been more costly. 6

Bridge - Solid and unassuming. Will enjoy a lengthy run in the side from Petrov. 6.5

Wright-Philiips - Looked to be the odd man out of the attacking players. One or two flashes but never really got a foothold in the game. 6

de Jong - Broke up any threat from West Ham and always onto the loose ball. Shown himself to be a vital component since his return to the side. 7.5

Barry - A lot of his work goes largely unnoticed but has shown himself to be a integral cog in the midfield trio. 7

Petrov - Played like he had a point to prove and delivered an exciting performance full of pace, threat and delivery. Scored one, made another and will be difficult to leave out. 8

Bellamy - Full of running, energy and pace in a more central role. His delivery from set pieces is proving to be a big plus. 7.5

Tevez - Scored twice, and could (should) have added a couple more. Brings team-mates into the game superbly but perhaps needs a more clincial finish. 7.5


Santa Cruz - A quarter of an hour run out for his debut. Little chance to impress although had a half chance he may have done better with. 6.5

Johnson - No real time to make an impact but his return was a huge plus nonetheless. n/a
