West Ham player ratings vs Norwich: Rice still imposing with Bowen continuing superb season

O

East Ham cruised to a resounding 4-0 win over already-relegated Norwich to quickly put the disappointment of their Europa League semi-final exit behind them.

here’s how Moyes David‘ side rated at Carrow Road

Lukasz Fabianski 6

Got away with a goal disallowed after beating at the cross and otherwise unworked until smart block denied Pukki late and kept the clean sheet.

Vladimir Coufal 6

Produced an outrageous first-time cross on the fly for Fornals’ chance, although the flag would have ruled it out.

Craig Dawson 7

Important block to deny Gilmour’s volley and the key to air presence to win the penalty before hobbling injured.

Kurt Zouma 7

Marshalled Pukki with ease until late occasions, but will have had more trying days sitting on the sofa.

Aaron Creswell 6

Quietly solid, which was probably just the ticket after Frankfurt’s red card.

Declan Rice 7

Commanding as always in midfield even without his Czech teammate by his side, then slotted into central defense.

Pablo Fornal 7

An elegant display and a threat with late runs in the box that often go unattended.

Manual Lanzini 7

Started in a deeper role in Soucek’s absence but soon realized Norwich’s lack of threat and had fun. Nice penalty.

Said Benrahma 8

Opened the scoring with a deflected effort and then effectively ended the game as a contest with a superb finish before halftime.

Jarrod Bowen 8

Ball smartly shifted for the opener, before the pass behind created the second, then assisted the third as well. Has 20 goals in a superb league campaign.

Michael Antonio 7

The first league goal since New Year’s Day was an absolute giveaway, but forced into half-time, still feeling the effects of Hanley’s heavy tackle.

Substitutes

Andriy Yarmolenko (Antonio 46′) 6

Led the line after Antonio left but rarely threatened.

Noble Mark (Dawson 67) 6

Given a cameo on his 35th birthday, much to the delight of traveling support.

Nikola Vlasic (Benrahma 75′)

Unused: Areola, Johnson, Masuaku, Fredericks, Soucek, Kral
