The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising of LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Rachel Yankey, Les Ferdinand, Clare Tomlinson, Dave Bassett, and Barry Fry has determined that the Utilita Performance of the Week Award should go to West Ham United for their performance against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday the 26th of August.
West Ham United manager, David Moyes, will receive the Utilita Performance of the Week trophy.
It was not quite Prague at 10.50pm on 7 June, but Saturday 26 August in Brighton will still be up there in West Ham United supporters’ standout moments of 2023!
The Hammers produced a counter-attacking display of devastating beauty to storm to a first-ever Premier League victory over the Seagulls at the 13th attempt with a 3-1 success, and to the top of the Premier League table.
James Ward-Prowse, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio were the goal scoring heroes, but this was an all-round team performance to be immensely proud of, with Alphonse Areola, Kurt Zouma, full debutant Edson Álvarez and Lucas Paquetá all producing sensational performances for their side.
