Once again, Nathan Holland has produced the goods for West Ham United under-23s, as he scored twice against Sunderland to help secure a 4-2 victory.
Is this West Ham's best side of the Premier League era?
This follows previous goals that have impressed fans, including his winner against Valencia B and a superb strike against Brentford B – with the latest of his goals putting the Hammers 3-0 up in the first half:
Holland has his second!

This has got many West Ham fans calling for the 21-year-old to become a more permanent feature in the first-team.
Holland started the 4-0 Carabao Cup loss against Oxford United, which was his first game at senior level since his 28 minutes at the end of a 3-0 win against Bolton Wanderers, as per Transfermarkt.
The 21-year-old played 57 minutes against Oxford, completing two key passes and 80% of the passes he attempted, while he also managed one tackle and one interception, as per SofaScore.
A selection of Twitter reaction to Holland’s goal, including posts from admiring West Ham fans, can be seen below:

Holland should be in squad in place of Snodgrass, he either sits on bench or strolls around on the pitch Holland would be an improvement in every way

Time to get this lad into matchday squad. Competition for both Anderson and Yarmolemko can only be a good thing

If we gave Diangana a chance last season, why not Holland this season?
