The veteran goalkeeper was as solid as ever, making a fine stop to deny Weimann early on. Never had much to do following that stop.
The Englishman looks to be forming a formidable centre-back relationship with Reid. Their communication and decision making was spot on.
Didn't have anything to do from a defensive point of view in the first half and was fairly anonymous in an attacking sense too. Coasted through much of the afternoon as Villa struggled to get on the front foot.
The Upton Park crowd got on his back early following a few misplaced passes. To his credit, he soldiered on, but he is definitely struggling to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League.
Marshalled the hosts' defence with calmness and composure throughout, making a couple of great blocks from Aston Villa's efforts. One of his easier games this season, made Benteke look distinctly average.
An assured performance from the midfielder. He swept up loose balls, kept West Ham ticking, and came close to opening the scoring with a rip-roaring effort in the first half.
Kept West Ham ticking along without ever excelling in any area. A couple of surging runs in midfield were unsuccessful but did enough to get the crowd excited.
Easily the outstanding player on the pitch. He gave the Villa defence a headache all game with his direct dribbling and movement. His crossing was reliable and consistent too, just a pity most of them were in vain. Must have been an injury which forced him off early in the second.
Had a tough task leading the line, played with his back to goal for most of the afternoon. Made a massive challenge on Weimann one-on-one, doing well to stay on his feet and avoid a red card. Had a couple of efforts after the break but failed to find the target.
Cut in the from the right-wing on a couple of occasions to try his luck with his left foot. Swapped flanks with Jarvis well but it was the former Wolves man who looked the more potent threat.
Squandered three early shooting opportunities in the box. Usually so reliable in front of goal, seemed like he left his shooting boots at home today. His luck didn't change after the break, as he fluffed more chances in good areas. Very wasteful.
The American was kept busy in the first half without ever having to stretch himself too much. The second half was a different story, he made some good saves and a couple of majestic punches from crosses.
Stewart Downing and Guy Demel didn't really give the Villa defender to much to worry about in the first half. After the break he coped well as West Ham piled on the pressure.
Had a couple of nervy moments alongside Vlaar, one moment of miscommunication with his goalkeeper almost gifted West Ham a goal. Cole's introduction made his life hell, but to his credit, by hook or by crook, he kept him at bay.
He was kept on the back foot by the constant threat of Matt Jarvis down the left flank. The West Ham winger got the better of him on most occasions. Not outstanding by any means, but Lambert will be pleased with his contribution.
Had a fairly comfortable first half as West Ham struggled to threaten without a orthodox centre-forward. Made some great challenges as the game became stretched after the break.
Spent most of the first half chasing the shadows of Noble, Collision and Morrison. Really struggled to exert any influence on proceedings from midfield and was often wasteful in possession.
Did the dirty work for Paul Lambert's men in the first half, committing a number of late cynical fouls to disrupt the little rhythm West Ham managed to muster.
Was deployed ahead of Nathan Baker in the line-up but spent most of the game in his own half helping his defence, to good effect it must be said.
Extremely quiet in the first half. The Belgium international hardly had a kick in the first 45. After the break he came alive in short spells. Crashing a header against the frame of the goal in one of Villa's few chances.
Lost out to Morrison in a shoulder-to-shoulder when he looked to be clear through on goal and failed to beat Jasskelainen with another great chance early on. He kept running the channels throughout but the service into him and Benteke was non-existent. Came of injured early in the second half.
Came on to inject some creativity into the West Ham attack on the hour. Looked lively, delivering a number of crosses straight away for his namesake up front. Did more than most to try and force a Hammers goal.
Was brought on as the fans clamoured for a striker. He was received by a chorus of cheers and put himself about in the penalty box, alas, to no avail.
