In a challenging Premier League match against Manchester United on Sunday, Ghanaian talent Mohammed Kudus showcased an outstanding performance for West Ham United, even though they suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford.
The 23-year-old midfielder proved to be a standout player for the Hammers, demonstrating brilliance in a game where inspiration was hard to come by.
Kudus completed the most dribbles in the match, tallying seven, with five of them accomplished in the first half alone—two more than the entire Manchester United team combined.
Additionally, Kudus excelled in duels, winning the most with 15, and emerged as the most fouled player in the game, drawing four fouls. Despite the challenging outcome, Kudus’s individual performance highlighted his skills and contribution to the West Ham side.
The match saw Hojlund celebrating his 21st birthday with a crucial 23rd-minute finish, setting Manchester United on the path to victory. Garnacho doubled their advantage shortly after, and he later added another goal near the end, securing a convincing win after Scott McTominay seized possession in the West Ham half.
