‘A beast’, ‘Brilliant today’ – These West Ham fans discuss Sebastien Haller after his debut

West Ham United were heavily beaten 5-0 by Manchester City in their first game of the Premier League season. It was an inauspicious start to the campaign for the Irons, but Manuel Pellegrini will be glad that he doesn’t have to face his former side again for a while. 

In the first half at least, there were some positives for the Hammers too. The London Stadium faithful got their first look at £45 million summer signing Sebastien Haller. The 25-year-old striker showed flashes of quality.

However, as the game went on, and City grew ever more dominant, the French attacker became less involved. As the home side lost the midfield battle, they also lost the ability to transition the ball up into Haller’s territory. As a result, despite having made his Premier League debut, the former Eintracht Frankfurt man remains something of an unknown quantity.

Against less brilliant opposition, Haller will get more chances to shine. He certainly has plenty of positive attributes, and an impressive previous record. Pellegrini will be hoping that he can start to have a real impact for his side soon.

Despite his limited involvement, plenty of West Ham fans were excited by what they saw from their new hitman. After the game, lots of Irons supporters took to Twitter to discuss Haller.
