West Ham suffered their fourth consecutive Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday, this time at the hands of Wolves. In fairness, the Irons gave a decent account of themselves at the London Stadium until the final few minutes, when they let the visitors grab a last-minute winner on the counter-attack.
Following the 1-0 loss, we asked Hammers fans to issue player ratings for each of those involved. Here’s a rundown of the three players who appear to have disappointed them the most, receiving the lowest average scores…
Robert Snodgrass – 4.0: The Scotland international was hauled off at half-time by Manuel Pellegrini, having managed just 20 touches during the first 45 minutes with none of them being a successful dribble or created chance. He didn’t make a tackle or interception either and while replacement Andriy Yarmolenko hardly set the game alight, he at least received a superior player rating of 5.1.
Carlos Sanchez – 3.9: He really doesn’t offer West Ham much creativity in possession, only ever passing backwards or sideways, yet still managed to give the ball away for Wolves’ late goal despite taking such a safe and unimaginative approach. The defensive midfielder only managed one tackle as well, which begs the question of what he’s actually bringing to Pellegrini’s team right now.
Michail Antonio – 3.6: Few expected the hardworking winger to see much game-time under Pellegrini so his regular participation this season has no doubt been a surprise, especially as Antonio’s current form is far from perfect. He did take the most attempts at goal of any West Ham player on Saturday but only one of his four efforts tested Rui Patricio and his passing accuracy was below 65%.
