Flocking to Twitter, some West Ham United fans weren’t impressed by the performance of Said Benrahma during their goalless draw with Southampton this afternoon.
David Moyes’ men have now commenced what will be a long and congested season with Europa League fixtures added into the mix.
So far it has been a solid start for West Ham, but things could be about to get slightly complicated domestically following Michail Antonio’s late sending off today.
Furthermore, some Hammers supporters weren’t particularly pleased with the performance of attacker Benrahma, who gave away possession 16 times before being hauled off by Moyes midway through the second half (SofaScore). His tally of 50 touches was among the lowest in the visitors’ line-up, while both of his shots were promptly blocked down.
Check out some of the verdicts on his “poor” performance from West Ham fans on Twitter below.
West Ham fans slam Benrahma
“Benrahma had a shocker today”
“Benrahma purple patch over”
“Benrahma will be the player long term that is benched for Vlasic.
Benrahma offered nothing today”
“Its West Ham United not Benrahma FC. He has been poor so we have changed it.”
“Time for Vlasic ? Benrahma missing”
“Benrahma has been poor today…looks a bit burnt out, he’s just making sloppy errors”
