Adrian Clarke looks at key tactical points in Matchweek 35.
It followed a pattern of positive results from West Ham whenever the 25-year-old has been included in their starting XI.
Taking all three points in eight of the 12 matches Benrahma has started, losing just once, the Algerian has been a lucky charm for David Moyes.
With him they tend to create extra opportunities and score more goals.

Benrahma's inswinging cross for Antonio at Turf Moor was a moment that had been coming, given he has created more chances for the forward than any other team-mate
As soon as Benrahma goes back on to his right foot, Sunday’s opponents Everton will certainly need to keep close tabs on Antonio inside the area.

It is interesting to note that Moyes has only ever named Benrahma in a Premier League starting line-up when either Antonio (nine matches) or Sebastien Haller (three) were available.
His guile and technique around the box makes him an ideal supplier for a natural centre-forward who makes quality runs.
All three fit in well with Moyes' tactical approach but when you look at some of Benrahma's numbers, he can count himself quite unlucky not to have started more than 12 times.

The 25-year-old is the most imaginative member of the squad, an excellent passer and capable of beating his man with a clever dribble.
Based on his terrific display at Burnley, it will be difficult for Moyes to leave Benrahma out for the visit of Everton to the London Stadium.
If Benrahma continues to make the most of his opportunities, putting him the starting XI going forward will be a foregone conclusion.
