During their 2-1 loss to Manchester City this afternoon at the Etihad Stadium, plenty of West Ham United fans were left buzzing by the performance of attacker Pablo Fornals – with the Spaniard doing well to mark Kevin De Bruyne throughout the 90 minutes whilst putting in his usual hard work.
David Moyes set up his side in organised fashion as he looked to clinch an unlikely result against the league leaders, but a sumptuous Kevin De Bruyne ball unlocked the Irons’ defence with Ruben Dias heading home the opener.
However, West Ham threatened, with star striker Michail Antonio hitting the post before burying a tap-in soon after – levelling the encounter for Moyes’ side at half time.
Despite an overall solid outing, the Hammers conceded defeat when John Stones managed a winning goal mid-way through the second half.
West Ham fans, flocking to Twitter, were particularly in awe of Fornals – who football.london describe as putting in an industrious display.
