Loads of West Ham fans were left furious by the performance Manuel Lanzini in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Everton.
If ever two teams have looked devoid of confidence, it was the Hammers and Toffees as they squared off on Saturday afternoon. The Irons took the lead shortly before half-time thanks to Issa Diop, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin answered for the visitors almost instantly. The second half then brought very few chances and very little excitement if truth be told, and fans couldn’t hold back after another poor display from Lanzini.
The Argentine playmaker was a popular figure before his knee injury that forced him to miss 31 games, but he has been a shell of his former self since coming back into the side. Per Sofascore, he mustered up just a 6.6 rating (out of 10), winning only three duels in the entire match, making no key passes and completing zero dribbles.
A creative midfielder should of course be expected to shine in those last two categories especially, and the Twitter reactions down below tell you all you need to know…
Lanzini is awful

Didn’t think that Lanzini offered anything today. Can’t understand it. Seems to be going backwards.

Has had little to no impact since we left Upton Park

When will people stop using the injury excuse for Lanzini, been poor for a while. Always been inconsistent.

Would you take Nathaniel Clyne at West Ham?
