Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Emirates Stadium in North London, West Ham had just 38% of the possession, took eight shots of which four were on target, and earned four corners.

Bennett, who is 19 years of age and can play as a winger as well as a forward, was following the game, and he was impressed with how Ogbonna played against Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, Italy international centre-back Ogbonna had a pass accuracy of 74%, and won two headers and three tackles.

France international striker Giroud had a shot accuracy of 50% and a pass accuracy of 75%, and won four headers, two dribbles and one tackle.
