Mathew Ryan has hailed the unsung heroes of Albion’s 3-1 win over West Ham.

Glenn Murray’s cool finish plus crackers from Jose Izquierdo and Pascal Gross secured the points.

It took something special from Javier Hernandez to drag West Ham level at 1-1 in the first period.

Shane Duffy had earlier blocked a goalbound header from Sam Byram.

Ryan highlighted the fact that he was not otherwise troubled.

The Seagulls keeper told The Argus: “They scored the goal and the tendency a little bit once you concede is to be a little bit shaken by it and go away from the plan.

“We started really well, getting into good areas in the final third but we just lacked that bit of polish apart from the goal Muzza got.

“They shook it up a little bit and had a little period but that’s sport. Momentum happens in games.

“They got their tails up when they got their goal.

“But I thought we did enough throughout the whole game.

“It was one of our most pleasing defensive performances.

“I don’t think I made a save. Duffers cleared one off the line and that was pretty much the end of it.

“I thought the guys in front of me were pretty solid.

“That is part of the reason we got the result.”
