‘Making West Ham Tick’ ‘Gonna Be An Assist King For Us – Fans on Twitter Hail Hammers Star’s Premier League Debut

West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri put in a very good display against his former club Arsenal at the weekend.

Despite having been sidelined due to a drugs ban for over a year, with just one competitive game under his belt since his comeback, manager Manuel Pellegrini opted to give him his first Premier League start versus the Gunners.

Nasri didn’t look at all rusty and provided the assist for the only goal of the game scored by Declan Rice. Supporters on Twitter praised the Frenchman after the match:

The 31-year-old could be an inspired piece of business by the club, going by his first couple of displays for the Hammers. He looks like someone with something to prove, and having players with the hunger and desire to play for the club is key if the Irons want to push for a top half finish.

Nasri will need to keep his consistency, though, if he wants to secure a contract so he remains at the London Stadium beyond the end of the season.
