‘Shouldn’t Have Started’ ‘Needs To Be Dropped’ West Ham Fans On Twitter Critical Of 26 Year Old’s Anonymous Display Against Everton

Although he wasn’t the only player who performed badly on Saturday against Everton, the form of West Ham midfielder Manuel Lanzini has been a major concern in recent weeks.

The Argentinian international played the full 90 minutes at Goodison Park but flattered to deceive as the Hammers slumped to a 2-0 defeat on the road. Supporters on Twitter did not hold back in their opinions of the midfielder’s most recent performances:

Lanzini has not scored this season and while he has provided two assists, both of those came back in August, in the 1-1 draw against Brighton and the 3-1 win over Watford.

The 26-year-old played as the key link man between midfield and attack at the weekend, but forward Sebastien Haller was an isolated figure as he received no service with the Argentine wasteful in possession.

With Pablo Fornals also struggling for form, though, it seems likely that Lanzini will keep his place when West Ham face Sheffield United in their next league game.
