Many West Ham United fans have flocked to Twitter to slate Said Benrahma over his performance in the Irons’ 1-0 FA Cup win over Stockport County on Monday.
The Algeria international was on the pitch for the majority of this game, getting replaced by Pablo Fornals just before the final whistle blew.
Per SofaScore, he was given a lower match rating than as many as seven other Irons players, including substitute Jarrod Bowen, for his performance in this game, with the £19.8m-rated man losing three of his five ground duels and turning over possession as many as 10 times during the contest.
So, what have these West Ham United fans been saying about Benrahma?
Per WhoScored, the 25-year-old, who is said to be strong at playing key passes, also failed to play a single key pass versus Stockport, so with all of this in mind, it may be understandable why some West Ham fans were critical of his performance on Twitter.
“I’ve been holding my tongue the entire match, and I know it hasn’t been a good display from anyone but… Benrahma. So wasteful in possession and hasn’t created a single good chance. What are we thinking about him?”
“Benrahma has been a waste of space #STOWHU”
“I’m sorry to say but Benrahma has been shocking”
“I dont rate Benrahma”
“Benrahma having an absolute mare. #COYI”
“Ready for pelters but. I’ve seen nothing from him yet that doesn’t say championship player.”
“Benrahma was woeful”
“Is it a bit early to say I’m not convinced by Benrahma”
Is this criticism fair?
