West Ham failed to win that game, which ended in a 1-1 draw, but Kouyate was superb for the London outfit from the first minute to the last.
It was the Senegal international midfielder who put Sam Allardyce’s side in front at the Boleyn Ground in the 49th minute.
The 25-year-old took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 95%, attempted one dribble, won 75% of the tackles and 71% of headers, and made two interceptions, 13 clearances and three blocks.
The Hammers would have won the game, had they not conceded a late goal when Netherlands international midfielder Daley Blind struck.
West Ham are currently ninth in the Premier League table with 47 points from 35 matches.
