West Ham player ratings: Carroll anonymous, Tomkins struggles, Lanzini only bright spark

West Ham United Gate

West Ham were thrashed 4-1 away at Tottenham today - here is how their players rated.

Adrian 5 - caught in no man's land for Alderweireld's header, before allowing Kane's second goal to slip through him and in. Not the Spaniard's finest afternoon.

Carl Jenkinson 4 - got forward well early on, but didn't really trouble the Tottenham defence with his deliveries in to the box. Struggled hugely with the Eriksen-Rose combination, but some of that could be put down to Sakho's lack of defending.

James Tomkins 4 - another West Ham defender to struggle, Tomkins was sloppy in possession and often couldn't pick up Tottenham runners.

Winston Reid 6 - will be disappointed to have lost Alderweireld for the second goal but was otherwise the pick of the West Ham defenders - though that isn't saying much.

Aaron Cresswell 5 - wasn't overly troubled by Son Heung-min out wide, but he will be disappointed to have not had more of an impact going forward, given what an accomplished crosser he is.

Mark Noble 5 - largely anonymous in midfield as the Hammers struggled to cope with Dier, Alli and Dembele in the middle of the park. Frustrations boiled over during an altercation with Alli.

Cheikhou Kouyate 6 - at least tried to make something happen, and he almost produced the spectacular by hitting the crossbar with a bicycle kick.

Victor Moses 5 - when West Ham were on top early on, Moses looked dangerous with his pace and power, but faded out of the game before being substituted on 63 minutes.

Manuel Lanzini 7 - West Ham's brightest player. He wasn't even at his usual best, but tried to make things happen in the final third before scoring a sublime consolation through great footwork and a powerful finish.

Diafra Sakho 5 - not a winger. Didn't have the desired impact going forward and didn't track back enough. Again, clearly frustrated after a clash with Kyle Walker in the second half.

Andy Carroll 4 - never a major threat, though West Ham didn't supply him with much service. Poor in possession and consistently slowed attacks down, which West Ham can't afford to have away from home.

Substitutes

Nikica Jelavic 5 - played his part in the goal but didn't make enough of an impact off the bench.

Mauro Zarate 5 - same again, really. The Argentine tried to get on the ball but nothing was coming off for West Ham.

Alex Song - only came on when the game was already over, but he came on for the much-needed minutes.
