West Ham have made a decent start to their 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

The Hammers currently sit in eighth position in the table, but it could have been much better.

They now have two weeks off due to the international break, giving West Ham fans the time to reflect on their side’s start to the season.

But who have been the Hammers’ stand-out performers?

Here’s a look at West Ham’s five best players so far this season…

The 20-year-old has been excellent this season. He is arguably the Hammers’ most important player.

Rice does all the simple things so well and without fuss. The England international makes everyone else’s job in the team so much easier, and West Ham are clearly a worse side without him.

The pacy right-back has been superb this season. He has started every single Premier League game, and he has so much more to offer than Pablo Zabaleta.

Fredericks is a real threat going forward on the overlap, but he is also a very solid defender.


He has played a key role in West Ham’s success thus far.

Arguably West Ham’s best player before he picked up an injury away at Bournemouth last weekend.

The 34-year-old has displayed excellent shot-stopping skills, and the way in which he commands his box really is impressive.

The Hammers will really miss the Pole over the next 2-3 months.

Angelo Ogbonna

The Italian was written off at the start of the season. Since he came back into the team in place of Fabian Balbuena, however, he has been one of West Ham’s most consistent performers.

The 31-year-old is strong in the air and is a great reader of the game, and the Hammers seem to be a far more solid unit when he is playing.

Sebastien Haller

The Frenchman has made a fine start to life in east London, with four goals in seven Premier League games to his name.

The 25-year-old’s hold-up and link-up play has been superb too. He will undoubtedly go on to be a real asset for West Ham.
