West Ham player ratings vs Manchester United: Nayef Aguerd errors costly but Said Benrahma sensational
West Ham’s FA Cup journey is over after a 3-1 defeat by Manchester United at Old Trafford.
David Moyes’ side led until inside the last 15 minutes in Wednesday night’s fifth-round tie thanks to an excellent goal from Said Benrahma.
However, Nayef Aguerd later put through his own net and Alejandro Garnacho scored a stunner before Fred applied the finishing touches to a late fightback from the Carabao Cup champions.
Malik Ouzia was at Old Trafford to rate the West Ham players.
Alphonse Areola 6
The start of a prolonged run due to Lukasz Fabianski’s injury. Made an excellent early save from Marcel Sabitzer.
Ben Johnson 6
Given a testing evening by Garnacho but a threat going the other way, too.
Nayef Aguerd 4
Usually so reliable, headed own goal past Areola and then made dreadful error for Fred clincher.
Angelo Ogbonna 6
Covered well behind Emerson to snuff out Antony threat.
A rare outing in a back four. Lashed across goal but no one there to finish, then did get assist for Benrahma opener.
Declan Rice 6
Defensively disciplined again but passing radar a little off.
Tomas Soucek 6
Glanced a near-post header into the side-netting and made vital block from McTominay effort.
Lucas Paqueta 7
Looks more at home in this team with each passing week. Booked.
Pablo Fornals 6
Displayed versatility with start on the right and brought energy to the side.
Michail Antonio 5
Running caused problems but simply had to score when sent through one-on-one.
Said Benrahma 8
Terrific driving inside off the left and goal was sensational.
Jarrod Bowen (Fornals 74’)
Gianluca Scamacca (Antonio 87’)
Unused: Anang, Cresswell, Kehrer, Downes, Lanzini, Swyer, Mubama
