Some views on individual stats

Fredericks – Poor passing but good defensive stats.

Diop & Ogbonna – Probably their best defensive stats as a pair, plenty of clearances.

Cresswell – Good attacking stats and better than the average passing stats.

Rice – Good passing stats but his lowest defensive stats for a long while.

Noble – Top of our passing as well as good attacking stats, highest recoveries in the match. And his Goal.

Snodgrass – Good attacking stats but lower passing numbers than Noble & Rice in the centre of midfield.

Anderson – Good in both directions, highest number of tackles in the match also.

Antonio – OK in attacking, passing lower that the last few games for him.

Chicharito – Not many passes for his 68 mins but generally made his passes without giving the ball away.


Nothing really shown although Obiang did add some needed defensive stats late on.


Stats Man of the Match (in my opinion)

Anderson – Good mixture of attacking stats and the most tackles in the match

West Ham fan for as long as I can remember. I was flukey enough to watch The Irons beat Bury 10-0 in my first ever game . . . True to form, West Ham then went out and signed their central defender 😬
