One West Ham star stood out v Genk in the Europa League clash at the London Stadium last night.
Hammers boss David Moyes will be delighted with his side’s excellent 3-0 win.
The match was a hard-fought one and the first-half was fairly drab in all honesty.
West Ham took the lead just before half-time, however, and then we put the game to bed early on in the second-half.
The three points is all that matters and the Hammers are now in total control of Group H.
West Ham star stood out v Genk
There were plenty of good performances from the West Ham players including the likes of Issa Diop, Craig Dawson, Jarrod Bowen and Declan Rice.
We think that one player stood out, however. And the stats back it up.
Ben Johnson put in another top class performance against Genk. Sure, his final ball needs to improve but that will come with more practice and experience.
We think we have a real star of the future on our hands.
Johnson was quite simply brilliant against the Belgians last night.
The 21-year-old had 84 touches, made nine ball recoveries, two clearances and one interception. He registered a pass completion rate of 85% and made five successful long passes according to Who Scored.
Johnson is now a highly valued member of David Moyes’s first-team squad at the London Stadium.
And the exciting thing is that he will only get better as time goes on.
