Ryan Fredericks shows real class despite West Ham defeat to Manchester City, does England beckon?

The attack-minded defender has looked quality during the last month in the Hammers team.

West Ham United landed Ryan Fredericks from Fulham during the summer in a transfer deal that caught the eye.

The 26-year-old was instrumental last season as the Cottagers won promotion to the Premier League.

He played 44 games for Slavisa Jokanovic’s team, contributing nine assists.

His move to West Ham was an intriguing one and he has taken some time to settle.

He struggled to force his way into Manuel Pellegrini’s thinking early doors, but in the last month has been handed an opportunity.

Fredericks hasn’t disappointed.

After missing a large chunk of the season with injury it was unsure when he would force his way into the team.

The attacking full-back was handed an opportunity against Liverpool in February and helped the Hammers to a 1-1 draw.

 

He has featured in every game since and looks to have a promising future.

His performance against Manchester City on Wednesday reiterated his quality.

Although the Londoners lost the game, Fredericks showed real class.

The national team isn’t blessed with lots of full-backs that can fit in with Gareth Southgate’s ethos of transforming them into wing-backs.

Fredericks is capable.

As a result, his recent good form could see him force his way into Southgate’s plan in the future.

After a slow start to life at the London Stadium, Fredericks is finally showing the Premier League what he is all about.
