West Ham’s bad run continued as they were thrashed by Wolves 3-0 at Molinuex.
Romain Saiss scored the first goal, and Raul Jimenez netted a brace to heap more misery to Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
In a first half where the home side created a lot of chances, Lukasz Fabianski came up with a couple of great saves. The Hammers were struggling to fabricate chances of their own.
The visitors did begin the second half well but Nuno Espirito Santo’s men kept probing in the final third. Diogo Jota had a good chance to which was well saved by Fabianski. Then Saiss had a chance to score before he eventually did following a great corner from Joao Moutinho.
Wolves doubled their lead when a fantastic wide free-kick from the aforementioned assist-man found the run of Jimenez, who scored from outside of his right boot.
The icing on the cake was done when Jota found the Mexican late on and the latter made no mistake to score another.
For West Ham, it was a night to forget.
Here’s how we rated the Hammers’ players:
Lukasz Fabianski - 8
Kept the score down in both halves. West Ham’s best player by far.
Pablo Zabaleta - 4
Had a lot of the ball but couldn’t do much with it. Struggled defensively in the second half.
Issa Diop - 4
He dealt with Jimenez very well in the first half but it all went wrong after the break.
Angelo Ogbonna - 4
A comfortable enough first half was followed by a lose second half. He should have done better to stop Saiss scoring the first goal.
Arthur Masuaku - 4
Was targeted early on as Wolves identified him as a weak point. Should have given a penalty away. Not good enough overall.
Declan Rice - 5
He was solid in defensive midfield and kept snuffing out the danger. Sometimes loose in possession.
Mark Noble - 3
The captain had a nightmare of a game where he was loose in possession and got overrun by Moutinho at times. Subbed off
Robert Snodgrass - 3
Just not good enough when given a chance to run at the Wolves defence. Got booked after making a silly challenge.
Felipe Anderson - 5
The only Hammer to show any quality but it kept breaking down for him in the final third.
Michail Antonio - 4
Was probably used as a target man alongside Arnautovic, but it didn’t work out.
Marko Arnautovic - 4
Couldn’t really do much in the first half as the whole team was poor. Did improve a slight bit in the second half. Was carried off the pitch substituted with what looked a leg injury.
(SUB) Andy Carroll - 3
Didn’t get a sniff at goal.
(SUB) Pedro Obiang - 3
Couldn’t do much to change the game.
(SUB) Javier Hernandez - 3
Didn’t do anything after coming on for the last 13 minutes.
