Over the weekend, a number of West Ham fans were delighted to see that some of their more inconsistent stars stepped up to the plate and delivered. Felipe Anderson and Grady Diangana, in particular, were sublime and the Hammers are still raving over 20-year-old Diangana.
How good is Grady Diangana tho? Had the Burnley full back on strings. Baller.

The West Ham academy man was at his very best against Burnley and he gave Sean Dyche’s side nightmares in his 86 minutes on the pitch. Whilst he failed to score, he did deliver an assist during his side’s 4-2 win and should have won a penalty when he was cleaned out in the first half, although the referee blindly turned down the stone-waller. It was an afternoon to remember for Diangana and he’s surely set to have more games like that this season.
The next test for Diangana and co is a trip to face Huddersfield next Saturday in the Premier League. The Terriers are still yet to win a game this season and with The Hammers returning to form with their dominant display against Burnley, the fans will be hoping that Diangana can have a field day up against David Wagner’s side and help The Irons continue to climb up the table after a shaky start to the Manuel Pellegrini era in Stratford.

Best player on the pitch today

If he improves his end product and final ball a bit more he will be a serious player

Very little end result though. Muscled off the ball too easily too. He will be great, but not yet.

The Irons love Diangana and will hope he can carry on impressing as the season draws on.
