Player ratings: West Ham 0-2 Fulham

Written by Max Hallmark on 15th April 2024

Max Hallmark dishes out the numbers after Fulham bagged their third away win of the season at the London Stadium.

Let’s get the only grumble of a very positive day out the way first: I can’t judge the first five minutes of this game as, like half our fans, I was stuck outside for kick-off. Once I eventually entered the London Stadium, I often couldn’t tell Lukic from Palhinha as the upper tier is in a different postcode to the pitch. If I could rank the stadium, it’d get a fat zero.

Bernd Leno

He was never properly tested by West Ham but held everything that came his way comfortably. It is hard to give a fair rating when he didn’t have all that much to contend with despite West Ham having chances. 7/10 

Timothy Castagne

Great going forward linking up with Iwobi, but seemed to struggle defensively. Perhaps it was part of the system but he seemed slightly isolated in the first half against tricky wingers and he occasionally lost out one-on-one. 6.5/10

Tosin Adarabioyo

Solid throughout, dealt well with West Ham’s balls into the box and composed on the ball. 7/10

Calvin Bassey

Stopped everything that came his way and strong in the tackle. This back line feels very solid with him in it and there’s the feeling that he will become a fan favourite if he isn’t already. 8.5/10

Antonee Robinson

Very solid performance, dealt well with his side defensively and also offered a consistent threat through his athleticism supporting Willian on the overlap, as he usually does. 8/10

Joao Palhinha

Won the ball back so many times either high up the pitch to keep us on the attack or on the edge of our box to bail us out of trouble. Didn’t notice too much of a threat from Paqueta as our monster midfielder handled him effectively. 8/10

Sasa Lukic

Broke up play well and set us up well for a few attacks. A really good showing from Sasa on his return to the side. 7.5/10

Andreas Pereira

Hard not to give MOTM to the player that scored all the goals. Andreas tripled his goal tally for the season and it wasn’t just his goals that were impressive. He was consistently the source of our attacking threat. Hopefully this triggers him to influence games more, just like we know he can. 8.5/10 – Man of the Match


Excellent down that left hand side, causing all sorts of problems for Coufal. Seemed to pick up the ball a lot in transition and set us on the counter multiple times. 7.5/10

Alex Iwobi

There were moments where he seemed to combine really well with Castagne but many things didn’t come off for him, particularly at the start in the second half. To his credit, he did get an assist for the second but he had the two biggest opportunities bar the goals to score himself. He was a little unlucky but he could have influenced the game even more. 6.5/10

Rodrigo Muniz

A goal for Muniz would have been the icing on the cake but unfortunately it wasn’t to be. While the goal evaded him, he held the ball up well even when left slightly isolated and is continuing to show his quality. You can’t help but love March’s Premier League POTM! 7.5/10


Harry Wilson

Caused issues for Emerson down the left and broke into some good positions. Nearly set Muniz through for a third goal but perhaps sent the pass a little too early. 7/10

Bobby De Cordova-Reid

Seemed to find so much space as West Ham tired. He just couldn’t quite punish them for it. 7/10

Adama Traore

Didn’t quite manage to show his burst of pace and threat that we know he’s capable of bar a tame shot held by Fabianski. 6.5/10

Armando Broja

Was left quite isolated as West Ham had a bit of a spell towards the end but brought a bit of energy towards the end as Muniz earned a well-deserved rest. 6/10

Harrison Reed

He was only on the pitch for four mins but it was good to see our Ginger Iniesta in action. N/A
