Tomas Soucek scored a late winner to give West Ham a dramatic 3-2 win against Nottingham Forest.

Here's how David Moyes's side rated at the London Stadium...

Alphonse Areola 6

Made a brilliant early save from Awoniyi header but could only parry Gibbs-White effort to the same player.

Vladimir Coufal 4

Struggled to contain the pacy Elanga and walking a tightrope after early booking.

Kurt Zouma 5

Back after three games out with a knee injury but didn't look full fit.

Nayef Aguerd 6

Some nice switches of play but spent more time on the ball than West Ham would have liked amid some cautious play. Took a painful whack to head late on.

Emerson 6

Caught out as Gibbs-White got the jump on him in build-up to equaliser. Twice went close to restoring lead.

James Ward-Prowse 8

Two more assists for the Englishman - his tenth and eleventh goal involvements since signing from Southampton.

Edson Alvarez 5

Unable to provide the kind of passing incision West Ham need in games like this.

Tomas Soucek 6

Preferred to Said Benrahma in midfield rejig. Missed two fine chances, hitting the bar and then seeing header tipped over late on, but brave header won it.

Mohammed Kudus 6

Lost the ball in the lead-up to leveller. Booked.

Jarrod Bowen 7

Struggled to get involved from his new central berth but rose brilliantly to guide home from Ward-Prowse's corner.

Lucas Paqueta 8

Took his opener brilliantly, firing low for a second goal in as many games.
