Revealing his team of the week for BBC Sport, pundit Garth Crooks singled out Hammers defender Dawson, for praise, and claimed: "Another solid game from Craig Dawson in a West Ham shirt. The former Watford and West Brom defender has slotted into the Hammers back line effortlessly.
“Dawson has always been a threat in the opposition's penalty area especially on set plays, and so it proved against Leeds United.
“However, it was his clearance off the line that must have sickened Leeds and put any chance of getting back into the game to bed. All credit to Moyes, who has moulded a very good team together at London Stadium.”

The 30-year-old's resilience at the back saw Marcelo Bielsa's side land just two of their 17 shots on target, in a particularly frustrating ninety minutes of football for the Whites.
Elsewhere in Crooks' selection, the likes of Spurs striker Harry Kane, Leicester City's Youri Tielemans and Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez also made the cut.
Next up, Leeds take on historic rivals Chelsea at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon. When the two sides last met, back in December, Patrick Bamford scored against his former club to give the Whites a lead after just four minutes, only for the Blues to storm back and earn a 3-1 win.
