Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a second-half winner as West Ham suffered a 1-0 defeat against Everton.

Here's how David Moyes's side rated at the London Stadium...

Alphonse Areola 6

Terrific save to deny Doucoure when the midfielder looked certain to put Everton two-up.

Vladimir Coufal 5

Fit after missing Olympiacos trip. Hardly worked defensively but no attacking product.

Kurt Zouma 5

Like his partner couldn't stop Calvert-Lewin on the turn for Everton goal. Beaten by same player in the air for Doucoure chance.

Nayef Aguerd 4

A few fine passes but fortunate to get away with mix-up with Paqueta. Rolled by Calvert-Lewin for Everton opener and increasingly second-best in their duel.

Aaron Cresswell 6

In for the suspended Emerson, set-piece delivery was decent.

James Ward-Prowse 5

Struggled with running power of Onana and Doucoure.

Edson Alvarez 4

With Soucek left out, handed extra responsibility in reshaped midfield but West Ham were too open. Poor in possession. Booked.

Jarrod Bowen 6

Missed big chance when scuffing wide midway through the first-half. Tried to inspire comeback with his drive but had precious few chances to run one-on-one as McNeil doubled up.

Mohammed Kudus 6

Handed a long-awaited first Premier League start. Deployed at No10, had a few bright moments but too often crowded out. Booked.

Lucas Paqueta 5

Divine pass almost made opener for Bowen but miscommunication with Aguerd should have been punished. Booked.

Michail Antonio 3

Strong start to the season has fallen away terribly. Cheers met his early withdrawal, which said plenty.


Said Benrahma (Antonio 57') 5

Booked for desperation to win ball back after losing possession. Volley forced Pickford into a decent save.

Tomas Soucek (Ward-Prowse 73') N/A

Danny Ings (Cresswell 85') N/A

Unused: Fabianski, Mavropanos, Ogbonna, Kehrer, Fornals, Cornet
