Kouyate nothing short of immense in Stoke City 0-0 West Ham

West Ham’s trip to the Bet365 Stadium wasn’t exactly one for the neutrals, as the Hammers and Stoke City produced 31 shots on target but eventually succumbed to a scoreless draw.

High-quality moments were hard to come by but if there was one individual performance that truly stood out, it was produced by Irons midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate Рwho quite simply dominated in the engine room.

Indeed, as our infographic shows, the Senegal international was nothing short of immense, producing a staggering eight tackles – the most of any player on the pitch – alongside three interceptions, five clearances and four successful aerial duels.

But Kouyate’s impact was by no means limited to keeping the clean sheet; he also contributed on the ball, creating one scoring chance and completing 80% of his passes to keep play ticking over.

It was an imperious¬†performance from the 27-year-old, but was he your Man of the Match? Let us know by voting below…
