The Hammers are having a great debut season in the Europa League. Two wins on the trot for the East Londoners. Suddenly Declan Rice is finding his scoring boots in the tournament, two in two for the England man. Should it surprise us? Rice is a player who turns up frequently in the opposition box without completely abandoning his defensive midfield responsibilities. Is there a more complete holding midfielder in England today? The system that Moyes plays allows the flair players like Benrahma to flourish knowing the defense is covered. Rapid were not so great attacking wise on the night with only one shot on target. Any long balls they tried to play to by pass the midfield were fodder to Diop and Dawson so they used the wings more. They nearly got rewarded with the penalty award which was overturned on review. Johnson the lucky man for West Ham. Rapid’s Marco Grull tripping himself or Johnson’s right foot clipping his heel? What do you think? Jarrod Bowen on 80 minutes found wanting in the composure stakes with keeper to beat, Benrahma saving his blushes.
