West Ham player ratings against Everton: Which star stole the show?

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United scraped through their FA Cup replay against Everton after penalties.

West Ham United will be delighted today after securing their place in the next round of the FA Cup with a tense penalty shoot-out win against Everton.

It wasn’t the ideal scenario for Sam Allardyce, who more than likely would have preferred a win in normal time, but the Hammers are through and still in the competition.

Here are our player ratings for West Ham from last night.

Adrian – 6

Didn’t have a lot to do for the majority of the match, but kept his nerve once the tie went to penalties.

Jenkinson – 5

Seemed a little nervous in terms of trying to get forward at times, which made the Hammers more predictable.

Collins – 6

Did a decent job against a very strong and physical attack. Could have also grabbed himself a goal.

Tomkins – 6

In terms of position his play was spot on. He rarely looked troubled.

Cresswell – 6

Was more willing than his full-back colleague to get forward, trying to make a difference.

Jarvis – 5

Seems to be struggling for confidence at the moment and he’ll definitely have better evenings at the office.

Downing – 6

Looked a little fatigued a times in the match and he’ll produce better performances. Will be disappointed he didn’t put away his spot kick.

Noble – 7

Excelled as the stand in captain. Looks so comfortable picking up the ball from the back four and then moving it forward.

Song – 6

Started the game well, but seemed to get tired quite quickly. Expect a full 90 from him in the near future.

Carroll – 6

In short, his performance should have shown more than it physically did. Hs presence was commanding as always.

Valencia – 8

The best player on the pitch for West Ham. Took his goal brilliantly.

Subs

Cole – 6

Revitalised the attack when he came on and kept his side in it during extra time.

Nolan – 5

Should have done more to stop the team from dropping so deep.

Amalfitano – N/A
