West Ham fans on Twitter fume at useless Lucas Perez

When Manuel Pellegrini came to West Ham, the signing of Lucas Perez was seen as quite a positive one. The Spaniard scored goals at Deportibo La Coruna despite failing to impress at Arsenal, yet he’s been shocking as a Hammer, and in the second half against Brighton last night, he was again godawful.

After watching Andy Carroll donkey his way through the first half, the Hammers were desperate to see a change at half-time and would have been pleased to see Perea thrown on in his place. Unfortunately, though, Perez could only watch Carroll’s shocker and match it, putting in his own horrific display that left the home supporters fuming at him after the game.

The chances are, with Carroll, Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic, that if Perez doesn’t improve quickly then he’ll be spending a lot of time on the substitute’s bench during 2019. It seems like Perez just isn’t cut out for English football. In his career in the Premier League with both Arsenal and West Ham the striker has bagged just three goals in appearances, and with performances like last night, that stat won’t be getting any better.

The Hammers will be desperate for a quick improvement from Perez and will hope the Spaniard can prove them all wrong.
