Let’s take a look at how each featuring squad member performed yesterday evening, as there were good Grades all round in a superb Team performance as we thumped The Trotters.
Spanish keeper Adrian will feel like he hasn’t had anything to do this season after keeping two clean sheets against Cheltenham Town and Bolton Wanderers respectively in The Carabao Cup.
The good form will do him no harm in the race with Joe Hart for the permanent No1 spot at The London Stadium, which Hart currently holds.
Sam Byram: 7/10
Filling in for Pablo Zabaleta in his usual right-back role, like Adrian, Byram had a relatively uneventful evening but provided good support in attacks.
However, the display will inevitably not be enough to prove to Bilic that he deserves to be starting over the Argentine.
Declan Rice: 8/10
Unsurprisingly, the starlet took to his first Hammers appearance at centre-back like a duck to water with another hugely impressive display.
Rice was the backbone of a defensive four, showing his usual composure and oozing physicality, what a prospect he really looks to be.
Angelo Ogbonna: 8/10
A great performance came just at the right time for the Italian last night, as he popped up with a headed goal and was barely troubled defensively.
The showing could be pivotal in the fact that James Collins is now out through injury meaning Ogbonna could be back in on Saturday.
Arthur Masuaku: 8/10
A superb showing from the DR Congo International as he made up for the mistakes of the opening day.
The highlight of it was an absolute thunderbolt of a top corner strike from outside the box in the closing stages, as he was superb in attack for the whole tie.
Sead Haksabanovic: 7/10
Considering that it was the Montenegro international’s first Hammers start, he excelled on the right wing.
Haksabanovic made a number of darting runs and combined well with the forwards several times. Overall, a brilliant London Stadium debut for the starlet.
Mark Noble: 7/10
Returning from a minor injury that has seen him miss two Premier League Games, the skipper was solid in midfield on one of the easier nights of his Career.
The Spurs fixture should see him return to Premier League action after a convincing display against The Trotters.
Cheikhou Kouyate: 7/10
As the only survivor from Saturday’s draw at The Hawthorns, Kouyate was back to his usual self after displaying a bit of sloppiness in The Midlands.
Playing alongside Noble, he made several promising runs into the visitors’ penalty area but just couldn’t quite find the finishing touch, although his ball work was much-improved.
Marko Arnautovic: 9/10
What a difference a month makes for our club record signing, the Austrian weighed in with a superb performance against The Trotters.
Being awarded Man of the Match and providing two assists, Arnautovic has now fallen back in favor with The Claret & Blue Army after his disgraceful red card at The St Marys’ Stadium.
Andre Ayew: 7/10
An expectedly good showing from the Ghanaian, who provided a key attacking edge throughout the first-half.
His day could have also been a lot better but he failed to convert a fantastic chance that was presented to him by Diafra Sakho on 13 minutes.
Diafra Sakho: 9/10
Sakho was yet another example of a player who was desperately needing to redeem himself after his Deadline Day antics, and he did that very well.
Popping up with our second goal and as a terrific display, Sakho was a Man of the Match contender and has taken a huge step towards winning the Fans back.
Nathan Holland: 7/10
As another starlet making his first team debut was the former Everton youngster Holland, after earning rave reviews for The U23’s.
He looked bright and quick down the right wing, another incredibly exciting prospect for the future.
Javier Hernandez: 7/10
After being rested from the start, Chicharito was unable to impact the Game in any major way but was allowed to play in his more conventional role of striker.
However, his game did look to be taking a worrying turn when he pulled up with injury on 73 minutes but he quickly recovered and looks good for Saturday.
Domingos Quina: 7/10
A rare chance for 13 minutes of first team football for the Portugal U20 star, who has featured sporadically under Slaven Bilic so far.
However, it was a handy cameo against Phil Parkinson’s men as he passed well and threatened the Bolton defence a fair number of times.
So, with our best round of ratings of the campaign so far being dealt out after last night’s wonderful performance and win, how will the players perform against Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs at the weekend, in what is surely our biggest clash of the season to date.
