David Moyes rang the changes from the midweek win over Silkeborg, with Lukasz Fabianski, Kurt Zouma, Jarrod Bowen, Pablo Fornals, Tomas Soucek and Michail Antonio all coming back into the starting XI. However, Neal Maupay’s second-half strike proved to be the difference at Goodison Park.
The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who West Ham’s three worst outfield performers were on the day to have featured for at least 60 minutes.
Lucas Paqueta – 6.1/10
Summer signing Paqueta was one of five to keep his place in Moyes’ side from Thursday night but struggled throughout today’s match. The Brazilian was the worst-rated player on the day, losing nine of his 11 duels and giving the ball away on seven occasions.
He also failed to register a key pass or a successful cross and was replaced shortly after Everton’s opener.
Pablo Fornals – 6.4/10
Fornals was brought back into the starting line-up and occupied a role on the left-hand side. However, the attacking midfielder didn’t have an afternoon to remember, losing possession 14 times and completing just one cross.
The Spaniard also lost nine duels, committed two fouls and failed to register a single shot during his 62-minute display.
Vladimir Coufal – 6.7/10
Coufal completes the trio of struggling West Ham performers, with the Czech full-back failing to complete any of his four attempted crosses.
He lost possession a whopping 28 times and was second best in six of his 13 duels, failing to repay the trust that Moyes placed in him after also starting on Thursday.
