West Ham fans react to Sebastien Haller’s performance in Aston Villa draw

West Ham United supporters have praised Sebastien Haller, after he impressed in a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

The Hammers went ahead very early on in the game through Angelo Ogbonna, who rose highest from a Jarrod Bowen corner to hand the hosts the initiative.

Villa hit back through their captain Jack Grealish, whose strike from the edge of the box took a nick off Ogbonna on its way to finding the far corner.

Moyes threw on Haller and Said Benrahma for Arthur Masuaku and Michail Antonio at half-time, and the decision was instantly vindicated with the Algerian providing a perfect cross for Bowen to head home.

Despite applying plenty of pressure in the second half, Villa could not find an equaliser, with Ollie Watkins missing a penalty after a shirt pull in the box by Declan Rice.

The striker then scored in injury time but VAR found him to be a fraction offside.

Haller was perhaps unfortunate not to start the game, but did well when he came on at the break.

The Frenchman didn’t see a huge amount of the ball, but worked very hard and did show some brilliant link-up play at times, bringing the likes of Bowen and Benrahma into play.

On social media, fans made sure to praise the star for his contributions:
