West Ham United: Said Benrahma praised for performance v Norwich

West Ham United: Said Benrahma praised for performance v Norwich -Premier League News

The Athletic’s West Ham correspondent Roshane Thomas has been full of praise for Said Benrahma following his contribution in the Irons’ victory against Norwich City today.  

The Lowdown: Benrahma at the double

David Moyes named the 26-year-old in his starting line-up for the Premier League clash against the Canaries on Sunday afternoon as the Hammers secured a comfortable 4-0 victory, with two goals coming from the Algerian, while Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini were also on target.

The ex-Brentford winger caught Thomas’ eye for his improved performances since signing a permanent deal at the London Stadium after making the move from the other side of the capital during the 2020/21 season.

The Latest: Thomas praises Benrahma’s progress

Thomas took to Twitter immediately after Benrahma scored his first goal of the game.

The journalist gushed: “Ten goals and six assists in all competitions for Benrahma so far this season. He only scored three goals in 2020-21. Some will argue he needs to be more consistent but he’s definitely improved this season.”

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

The Verdict: Blistering Benrahma

The 17-cap Algeria international had a superb game all round at Carrow Road, with his two shots both resulting in goals, alongside making one key pass, which earned him an overall match rating of 8.61 from WhoScored, higher than any of his team-mates on the day.

The £22.5m-rated ace has made a huge improvement during his time at West Ham. During his loan spell last season, he only found the net once and provided seven assists across all competitions for Moyes’ side (as per Transfermarkt), compared to this current campaign where he is already on a total of 17 goal contributions after his double today.

If Benrahma can continue this scintillating form, he could prove to be the difference between the Hammers finishing sixth and securing another crack at the Europa League, or having to settle for seventh and Conference League football in 2022/23.
