West Ham fans impressed by ‘class’ defender Ryan Fredericks despite Manchester City defeat

West Ham suffered a narrow defeat away to Manchester City in midweek – and some of the club’s supporters were still pleased with Ryan Fredericks’ performance despite the result.

The Hammers were narrowly beaten 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium due to Sergio Aguero’s penalty and it means they still haven’t won back-to-back Premier League games in 2019.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini returned to his former side hoping for an upset and saw his team defend well against a rampant Manchester City, who could have scored a lot more on another day.

They are still only four points off seventh in the league table due to results elsewhere and a strong finish to the season could still make it a good one.

Many West Ham fans took to social media to hail the contribution of defender Fredericks, as he proved his qualities against Manchester City winger Leroy Sane.

The 26-year-old appears to have nailed down the right-back position recently after featuring in the last four league games and now looks much more settled at the London Stadium following his summer arrival.

He made some excellent tackles against Manchester City and even a dramatic goal-line clearance to save his team.

The English speed machine showed the kind of hype that surrounded him last season when he was at Fulham and it was a real encouraging step on Wednesday night.

Here are some of the West Ham fans on Fredericks:
