The Hammers were woeful against Leeds in the first half and the hosts took full advantage.

Raphinha put the Whites 1-0 up midway through the first-half. It really was a miserable 45 minutes. The only shining light being the display of Said Benrahma.

Whenever the Algerian had the ball he looked like he could make something happen.

Benrahma, 26, is a real talent and we’re very lucky to have him at the London Stadium.

In fairness, not many West Ham players covered themselves in glory today.


We were well off the pace. In actually fact, it was one of our worst performances under David Moyes for quite some time.

Give credit to Leeds though, they made it very hard for us.

The Hammers undoubtedly improved in the second-half, however. Jarrod Bowen got us back in the game and from then on in we were the only side who looked like winning.

And win it we did, with a superb goal late on from Michail Antonio.
