West Ham manager David Moyes has been heaping praise on midfielder Pablo Fornals, much to the approval of many Irons fans.
Speaking via @whufc_news, Moyes said: “Pablo has done really well. He’s a really likeable boy and works really hard for the team. We’re always demanding more from him because we want assists and goals for him and he’s been doing that. His energy and enthusiasm is incredible.”
The Spaniard definitely deserves the plaudits from his manager. This season he has one goal and two assists, and he has averaged 1.5 shots and one key pass a game (WhoScored) His eye for goal has certainly helped the Irons as they have eight points after six games in the division.
The £16.2m-valued ace struggled to be consistent in his first season in the Premier League last term, with only two goals and five assists. If he keeps up his good form from recent weeks, then there is no doubt he can improve on his record from 2019/20.
Here is what West Ham fans had to say about Moyes’ comments on Fornals:

Just needs to get a few more goals and he’ll be on fire. He’s right on the cusp of that, having missed a few sitters. Once he scores, the floodgates will hopefully open.

Rate Pablo but still is played out of position and think will be exposed with Antonio out. Think with Haller in the system benrahma has to play but know Moyes won’t change a thing. I like the system but not with Haller. We need a plan B imo

Totally agree bro. But i think Benrahma will give us something special.

I think Fornals is key to the team, his work rate and drive is something to admire. For a guy that’s missed his fair share of chances you never see him drop his head. I’d 💯 play him vs Liverpool that energy will be needed

Been one of our best players
