The 23-year-old was a rare shining light despite Hammers suffering a humiliating 5-0 defeat at the hands of Mauricio Pochettino’s side on Sunday.

Kudus played the full 90 minutes but was powerless to stop Chelsea's sharp attack from causing damage at the other end.

The Blues completed dominated the game, with goals from Cole Palmer, Conor Gallagher and Noni Madueke being added to by a double from Nicolas Jackson.

While West Ham endured a miserable afternoon at Stamford Bridge, Kudus was a class above the rest and was a threat any time he had the ball.

The former Ajax Amsterdam star put up a masterclass on the flanks and completed an incredible 13 take-ons (dribbles) against Chelsea.

This saw the Ghana international become the first player to complete 13 take-ons in a single Premier League game this season.

Meanwhile, Kudus has affirmed his status as one of the best dribblers in the game since moving from Ajax to West Ham last year.
