West Ham is one of the biggest clubs in England. This London based club had its ups and downs in the 2010s. Many great players played for the club during this timeline. In this article, let us have a look at some of the best West Ham players of the last decade.
Considering various factors like consistency, skills, impact and loyalty, here are the 10 best West Ham players of the last decade.
5. Aaron Cresswell
Aaron Cresswell has become a Premier League star since joining West Ham United. The likeable left-back arrived from Ipswich Town in 2014 and enjoyed a spectacular debut season in Claret and Blue, capped with a Hammer of the Year award. The following year, 2016, his fine form saw the Liverpool-born defender capped by England.
4. Michail Antonio
Michail Antonio had never played a minute of Premier League football prior to joining West Ham United from Nottingham Forest in August 2015. He became the Hammer of the Year in 2017.
Since then, the powerful and versatile south Londoner has become a firm favourite among the Claret and Blue Army after scoring unforgettable and historic goals in wins over Liverpool, Manchester United and, twice, Tottenham Hotspur.
3. Scott Parker
Scott Parker’s West Ham United career coincided with a difficult time in the Club’s history and was more than half over when the 2010s dawned. But the energetic central midfielder was clearly the standout performer over the opening 18 months of the decade, amazingly winning Footballer of the Year honours as the Hammers were relegated in 2010/11.
He was twice the winner of the Hammer of the Year award. In the last decade he only made 57 apps for the club, but thats good enough to grant him a place in this list.
