During their 3-3 draw with Arsenal at the London Stadium this afternoon, plenty of West Ham United fans weren’t impressed by the performance of Said Benrahma – with many Irons supporters believing he was ineffective against the Gunners.
Benrahma, who was taken off in the final 15 minutes by David Moyes after struggling to double up against Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Calum Chambers, couldn’t get on the scoresheet after being handed a start.
The Algerian, signed permanently from Brentford at the end of January, did enjoy a handful of fine moments – most notably managing to dribble his way inside the penalty area and put in a low cross for Michail Antonio who failed to convert the great chance late on.
However, these moments were debatably few and far between, with plenty of Hammers supporters left unimpressed by the 25-year-old as they took to social media – one called the Algerian a “fraud”, while another moaned that he “offers nothing” to the team.
Benrahma did not have a shot all afternoon, lost possession 10 times during the match and recorded just 16 accurate passes – among the outfield players in the Irons’ starting XI, only Jarrod Bowen had fewer. [SofaScore]
