Gokhan Tore awarded West Ham Man of the Match award

West Ham won their first league game at the Olympic stadium with a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth thanks to an Antonio goal setup by Gokhan Tore.

Tore became the first player to provide an assist in the Olympic stadium and setup his first goal in his first Premier League game for the Hammers in the process.

West Ham asked fans who their man of the match was after the game and Tore ended up taking the award with 42 percent of the vote.

Over 4000 people took part in the online poll to nominate the Hammers first ever man of the match at their new stadium.

In case you missed the goal, Tore had a moment of brilliance in beating his marker before unleashing a pinpoint cross which was headed into the back of the net by Antonio.


The Turkish international winger made more key passes than any other player over the 90 minutes (4), made three successful dribbles and pulled off seven crosses including the one that resulted in the goal.

The Hammers take on the Astra next in the Europa League on Thursday and Tore is expected to start.
