Chris Basham - One of the more mobile of the Blades defenders, got up and down the field in typical fashion - 7

Sheffield United's John Egan and West Ham goalscorer Sebastien Haller (Picture: Simon Bellis/Sportimage)

John Egan - A vital block to deny Jarrod Bowen in the first half. Led the line well - 7

Ethan Ampadu - Taken off shortly into the second half having made little impression - 6

George Baldock - Should have scored in the first three minutes, would have changed the complexion of the game, but otherwise industrious - 6

Sander Berge - Positioned just behind the front two he was neat and tidy but needs to be involved more - 7

Oliver Norwood - Looked off the pace at times and is not impacting games as he was last season - 5

John Fleck - Back in the starting XI and while not abole to replicate last season’s form, it was good to see him back - 6

Max Lowe - Ineffective going forward and West Ham enjoyed a lot of possession down his flank - 5

Oli McBurnie - Had United’s best two chances, but wasted both shooting straight at Fabianski and then hitting the cross bar - 6

David McGoldrick - Busied himself in front of the Hammers backline but too much of a muchness to McBurnie, without getting the chances - 5

Substitutes:

Jack Robinson (for Ampadu 62) - Unable to change the flow of the game - 5

Rhian Brewster (for Norwood 65) - Set McBurnie away for best chance if second half and stretched West Ham defence with his running into channels, but still searching for first goal - 6

John Lundstram (for Basham 76) - Like Robinson, unable to change the game - 7
