One player stood out from the rest though.

Said Benrahma was absolutely brilliant, especially in the second-half when he took charge of the game.

Joe Cole raves about ‘unplayable’ Said Benrahma

The Algerian has been frustrating at times but tonight he showed the class and quality that he possesses.

He scored two goals that earned us the draw and his second was a truly magnificent solo effort.

“He’s one of them players who operates in behind the striker, he’s technically very good. I thought he was outstanding tonight and a player who West Ham fans will love watch. He was unplayable at times.”

Benrahma’s job now is to find more consistency and produce the goods regularly in the Premier League.

Six goals and three assists isn’t a bad return from 15 games but we all know that he’s capable of a lot more.

Hopefully the magic that he produced tonight will give him the confidence he needs to reach another level at the London Stadium now.
