Despite losing at home to Manchester United on Saturday evening, some West Ham fans on Twitter were left praising their star Said Benrahma for his individual performance.
The Hammers were beaten 3-1 at the London Stadium against Man United, with 2,000 home supporters in attendance.
David Moyes’ side were dominant in the first-half with plenty of goalscoring opportunities and they found a breakthrough with Tomas Soucek, but they will have been disappointed with just a one-goal advantage at half-time.
Visitors Man United turned the screw in the second-half by scoring three goals within 13 minutes to clinch all three points, which in the process ended West Ham’s decent form of late.
A selection of Hammers fans on social media believe that Benrahma was a real bright spark for them with his late cameo on the weekend and plenty are desperate to see him start.
The 25-year-old left-winger was only introduced with 15 minutes remaining to try claw his side back into the contest and showed some dangerous moments in the final third, but the team knew they blew their opportunity when they were on top in the first-half.
Despite not starting a single league game since his arrival in the summer window from Brentford, he’s a major individual talent that has shown glimpses and adds an extra dynamism going forward.
Here are some West Ham fans discussing Benrahma:
Shoulda killed the game in the first half Bruno changed the game, positive I think Benrahma will start now I hope https://t.co/xw1G0e4ISE

Benrahma has to start, he created more in his 20mins than anyone else in the other 70mins

Poor defending in the second half.
Worrying how little pace we have in the back 3.
Benrahma starts next game for me. He’s quality on the ball and always looking to create!
