West Ham United’s thrashing of Manchester United was an enjoyable afternoon for fans, but in years to come one of the most memorable moments could be a Premier League debut for Grady Diangana.
The 20-year-old has shot to the forefront in the past week following a dazzling Carabao Cup display in the win over Macclesfield, scoring twice.
From the Democratic Republic of Congo, he moved to London at just four years of age in 2002 and joined West Ham at the age of 12.
Eight years later, he has made his Premier League debut and looks set to become a real asset for Manuel Pellegrini.
With pace and guile on the ball, he’s known for his dribbles down the flank, usually on the right, and his composed finishing as was on show at the London Stadium.
Having made the breakthrough, he will now be looking to build on his debut and become a regular option for Pellegrini as he gets to know his squad.
If his first team debut and brief cameo against the Red Devils was anything to go by, Grady Diangana could soon become a household name and provide the Hammers with the exciting attacking talent that they’ve been craving.
