‘Had Rashford In His Back Pocket’ ‘Looks A Good Player’ Fans Praise West Ham Star After ‘Class’ Performance Against United

‘Had Rashford In His Back Pocket’ ‘Looks A Good Player’ Fans Praise West Ham Star After ‘Class’ Performance Against United

West Ham right-back Ben Johnson put in yet another standout performance as the Hammers grabbed a much-deserved point against Manchester United last night.

It was only the fullback’s second league appearance of the season, following on from his excellent display versus Watford, but he looked right at home going up against Marcus Rashford.

Supporters on Twitter believe Johnson has the potential to establish himself as a regular first-team player for years to come:



Johnson won the most tackles, the most defensive duels, made the most clearances as well as making more recoveries than any other West Ham player.

Considering his lack of experience, he showed maturity beyond his years. It appears that Jeremy Ngakia’s departure last month had at least one silver lining to it.

With Ryan Fredericks likely to remain sidelined for the final game of the season against Aston Villa due to a calf strain, Johnson is expected to start once more on Sunday.
