During West Ham United’s crucial 3-2 victory over Leicester City at the London Stadium, many Irons supporters weren’t impressed with defender Arthur Masuaku after he was caught in possession just before the away side’s first goal.
The left wing-back, who was handed another start by David Moyes, his second since returning from knee surgery recently, got caught out for Kelechi Iheanacho’s first strike after West Ham took a stellar three-goal lead.
A stunning opening goal from Jesse Lingard in the first half opened the floodgates in east London, with makeshift striker Jarrod Bowen later assisting another one for the loanee close to half-time.
Shortly after the interval, Bowen got on the scoresheet himself to make it three, but Masuaku losing the ball in West Ham’s half later resulted in Iheanacho setting up a very nervy ending to the encounter as he scored twice for the visitors.
The 27-year-old was also the lowest-rated out of any West Ham player with just 5.9 on SofaScore. He lost six of his 11 duels, was beaten in three dribbles and conceded possession 11 times.
In reaction, these Hammers fans weren’t impressed, with one even dubbing him a “liability” – find some of their verdicts down below.
