West Ham fans rave about ‘monster’ Issa Diop after beating Fulham

West Ham beat Fulham 3-1 in the Premier League on Friday night – and many of the club’s supporters singled out their defender Issa Diop for special praise.

The Hammers earned three much-needed points in the Premier League, as they beat 19th-placed Fulham in the league.

Ryan Babel had put the visitors in front after only three minutes, but the Hammers had a second-half turnaround courtesy of goals from Javier Hernandez and Issa Diop.

Hernandez’s equaliser looked fortunate as it appeared to strike his hand, while Diop exploited Fulham’s weakness from corners with a towering header.

Michail Antonio then completed the scoring in the 91st minute with his own header and lifted Manuel Pellegrini’s side to ninth in the league table.

A selection of West Ham fans on social media were delighted with the efforts of Diop, as he helped his team end their run of five games across all competitions without a win.

Diop is a powerhouse defender that is an ever-present in the team since joining in the summer and is adjusting very well to life in England.

The 21-year-old centre-back managed to score his first goal for the club and also showed his defensive qualities against Fulham’s impressive striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Here are some of the West Ham fans on Diop:
