West Ham fans react to Ben Johnson display against Everton
A number of West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Ben Johnson after the full-back’s display for the Hammers in their win at Everton.
The Irons moved above the Toffees in the Premier League table. Angelo Ogbonna headed home a late Jarrod Bowen corner to score the only goal.
The result ensured that David Moyes’s men continued their unbeaten start away from home in the Premier League this season.
And it was arguably a result that West Ham deserved. They played some fantastic football going forward, and Everton occasionally struggled to cope with the runs of Michail Antonio and Said Benrahma.
But another player who impressed for the away side at Goodison Park was Johnson.
The 21-year-old was making his first top-flight appearance of the season. And he was deployed in his more natural role of right-back.
He was handed a tough task on Merseyside. Demarai Gray has been outstanding for the Toffees since his summer move.
But he dealt with the task extremely well. Gray was unable to give the home supporters much to smile about in the defeat.
And with that, plenty of West Ham fans have taken to social media to praise Johnson.
‘Class today’: West Ham fans laud Ben Johnson after Everton win
Some felt that he very much showed why he is able to provide that cover at centre-back for Moyes’s men. Many of his doubters are certainly a lot quieter.
With that in mind, here is what some of the West Ham United fans made of Johnson’s performance in the narrow win at Everton…
