West Ham United star Ryan Fredericks was given a rare 10 rating by WhoScored for his fantastic display against Southampton on Saturday.
Fredericks was starting his second Premier League match in a row after playing really well against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
The Englishman had a tough first half of the season, with an ankle injury keeping him out of the team.
Of late though, Fredericks has really started to prove his worth and his display against the Saints was arguably his best in a Hammers shirt.
Certainly that’s the way WhoScored saw it, with the reputable football statistics website awarding the 26-year-old a perfect 10 for his contributions.
In 90 minutes he made seven recoveries, four out of four take-ons, four out of four tackles, four clearances, 10 out of ten aerial duels and two inteceptions.
He becomes the first defender to receive a 10 rating since former Arsenal star Thomas Vermaelen got the same score against Blackburn in October 2009.
Fredericks is finally showing why he was worth signing and he simply must begin 2019/20 as the first-choice right-back for Manuel Pellegrini.
Unlike Pablo Zabaleta he is coming into his prime years now, and appears to have fantastic physical attributes as well has decent technical qualities.
For a defender to receive a 10 from WhoScored is very rare especially a defender, and it surely highlights what an excellent player the Irons have on their hands.
