Sheffield United continued their fine Premier League form and picked up another valuable point away from home.
A second half strike from Lys Mousset cancelled out Robert Snodgrass’ opener. On a cold and wet day in the London Stadium, the Blades once again showed their top-flight mettle.
Manager Chris Wilder opted to bring back Callum Robinson in place of goal-scorer Mousset. However, the Frenchman had the last laugh as he struck for the second time in a week.
Following the performance, we here at Sheffield United.News gave our player ratings:
Dean Henderson – 7
Alert when he needed to be. A couple of big second-half punches relieved the pressure, as did a crucial save from Cresswell’s effort.
George Baldock – 7
Should have scored, maybe twice, but was his usual solid self and put in plenty of work again.
John Egan – 8
Has become ‘Mr Dependable’. Another flawless performance from United’s rock at the back.
Chris Basham – 6
Arguably Basham’s most difficult game to date. Caught out somewhat for the goal and almost gifted the Hammers another with a similar mishap.
Jack O’Connell – 8
Marshalled the dangerous Yarmolenko well and restricted him to just bits and pieces throughout the game.
Enda Stevens – 7
Got forward a few times but was helping O’Connell out with Yarmolenko too. Still, a very good display as usual from the Irishman.
Oliver Norwood – 6
Strange day at the office for Norwood. Was steady as always but gave the ball away sloppily at times. Will have expected better of himself.
John Fleck – 7
Quieter than in mid-week but as industrious as ever in the middle of the park. Linked up nicely with Enda Stevens throughout.
John Lundstram – 7
Got about the pitch well again and unlucky not to score in the first half. Proving more and more he belongs at this level.
David McGoldrick – 7
Linked the play nicely once again but should have scored. The wait continues for McGoldrick to bag his first Premier League goal.
Callum Robinson – 6
Withdrawn early in the second half. Looked dangerous in spells and unlucky to see the goalkeeper take one off his head with an open goal.
Billy Sharp – 8
Led the line well and changed the course of the game for the better. Looks hungry to score and galvanised his team when they needed it.
Lys Mousset – 8
Another game changing performance from Mousset. A lovely finish and plenty of running. Left Haller for dead with one sublime piece of skill too.
Mo Besic – 5
Introduced too late to have a massive impact but did his job and got in and around West Ham. More to come from him.
