West Ham vs Leeds player ratings: Declan Rice caps poignant day in style while Lucas Paqueta impresses again
Players Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen and Manuel Lanzini ensured West Ham came from behind to beat Leeds 3-1 in their final home game of the season.
This is how David Moyes’ team rated the London Stadium…
Lukasz Fabianski 6
Made a good early stop from Harrison and the men in front of him were responsible for the Leeds goal.
Vladimir Coufal 6
Back after a break with a hamstring injury. Will be keen to regain his place ahead of the European finals in his hometown.
Kurt Zouma 5
He escaped with an unusual mistake and gifted Rodrigo the lead mid-half, but was then substituted at half-time.
Angelo Ogbonna 5
Had to get close to Rodrigo for Leeds goal.
A bit too much at times, but a good attacking opportunity down the left flank worked well with Fornals. Summerville’s torrential block late.
Tomas Soucek 7
He almost put his team in the lead with his head in the overturned ground.
Declan Rice 8
Six years after his debut, he probably made his last home appearance for West Ham and capped it off with a superb goal. The awkward finish looks easy.
Lucas Paqueta 8
Another superb performance full of skill and tricks. A great pass that Ings deserved better. Lanzini made the sensational run even better. Booked.
Jarrod Bowen 8
A hooked cross at the back post equalized through Rice. Then he scored his goal brilliantly.
Danny Ings 7
His most elaborate performance in a while and unlucky not to score when Bowen scored. Laid on the winger’s goal with a skillful pass. Hesitated when Paqueta recorded it late.
Pablo Fornals 8
He followed his late winner with a superb performance midweek. The nice pass that put Leeds ahead in the run up to the goal was great.
Thilo Kehrer (Zouma 46′) 6
Replaced Zouma at the break and enjoyed a comfortable 45 minutes.
Manuel Lanzini (Bowen 84′) 7
With his contract expiring at the end of the season, he is likely to make a farewell appearance at the London Stadium. The crowning glory was a fairytale goal.
Ben Johnson (Fornals 90′) N/A
Divin Mubama (Ings 90′)N/A
Unused: Areola, Creswell, Cornet, Benrahma, Antonio
