Joe Hart said West Ham's season is finally up and running as his first clean sheet in a league game since January helped his side to their opening points of the campaign.

Overall it was a much improved performance by the East Londoners but how did we rate each player's individual efforts?

Andre Ayew replaced the Mexican global in the 64th minute but proved to be the decisive player as he scored and supplied an assist to give the Hammers their first win of the season, lifting some of the pressure off the under-fire Bilic.

"It was a top performance, not in the sense of lovely football, but in determination and in executing the game plan".

"It was playing on everyone's mind and hopefully we have put that to rest and we can move on and get a good result at the weekend".

Tom Ince hit the bar in the closing stages but West Ham saw out a scrappy victory - not that Bilic will be caring how it was achieved. We totally deserved it.


They would have been joint top with a win, but boss David Wagner conceded they did not warrant anything from the game.

"I am very pleased with the way we dealt with the hard situation that was created".

"But we kept the calmness, we changed a little bit the shape of the team and we said to the guys that you're going to go back to basics".

Rafael Benitez was absent from Newcastle United's last match and has been linked with the West Ham job, and Davd Sullivan has made his disagreements with Bilic public. We were second best in more or less every area.

"But football is an offensive game as well and we were not good enough, not courageous enough".

"It worked well previous year when we changed to this system".
