As West Ham exact revenge on Manchester United for their Premier League defeat at the weekend, coming away from Old Trafford as victors in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, supporters have slammed one of the few negatives of a fine evening’s work in Andriy Yarmolenko’s display.
David Moyes’ men took a difficult 2-1 loss against the Red Devils on Sunday as former favourite Jesse Lingard buried a late winner against them at the London Stadium.
Not only this, but club legend Mark Noble also missed the chance to draw level in the dying stages with his missed spot kick.
Alas, putting that result well and truly bed, West Ham ran out 1-0 winners against United in midweek as they edged past Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and into the Carabao Cup Last 16.
Manuel Lanzini scored the only goal of the game, burying a neat finish past Dean Henderson, with there being many standout performers to choose from.
However, on a night to remember, many Irons supporters were also quick to point out the lacklustre display of Yarmolenko – who earned the lowest SofaScore match rating (6.3) of any West Ham or Man United player.
Indeed, the Ukraine international completed just a single take-on throughout the 90 minutes, won only two of his eight ground duels and missed one gaping chance (SofaScore).
As a result, it’s safe to say supporters weren’t impressed – find all of their verdicts from Twitter down below.
West Ham fans slam Yarmolenko…
“Yarmo you donkeyyyyyy”
“yarmo is painful”
“Yarmo has got to go”
“Watching yarmo is very frustrating”
“Get rid of yarmolenko doing my head in!!!!”
“Nobes did fine imo Yarmolenko is a liability”
“Nobes and Yarmo were shocking”
“Yarmo was the only part of that performance that was bad”
