Many West Ham United fans were livid with the performance of Said Benrahma during their 1-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday.
The Hammers’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were dealt a blow against the Toffees as they succumbed to a single Dominic Calvert-Lewin goal. They remain in fifth place in the Premier League table but trail Leicester, the team directly above them, by five points with just three games left to play (Sky Sports).
Algeria international Benhrama was named in the starting line-up by David Moyes but he flattered to deceive. He lost possession of the ball 17 times throughout the match (SofaScore) and failed to have a telling impact on the game. Despite signing for the Irons last October, he is yet to score a goal in the Premier League in 27 appearances (Transfermarkt).
Is Benrahma good enough for West Ham?
These Irons supporters were far from happy with what they saw from the former Brentford man, who ne fan disparaged as a “waste of space”, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Benrahma
“Benrahma was a waste of space today, nothing like PL quality. Sick to death with hearing this fans love in that he is a new Payet. Nowhere near a £30m player. Who bought him, Moyes or Sullivan and his agent mate?”
“Personally I always thought Moyes seemed a little harsh on Benrahma but he’s 100% spot on.”
“He’s a letdown and feel he should be sold, Eze clearly was the player we should have got.”
“Benrahma was poor today and probably isn’t a 30m player, but Lingard has been terrible last few too and Bowen had been very average for a while”
“He’s just so bad. And the people who go on like he’s our best player make me hate him even more”
“Benrahma is the worst West Ham signing in the past 10 years Has 1 good game in every 20”
In other news, many West Ham fans want the club to sign this goalkeeper.
