West Ham fans react to Manuel Lanzini’s display against Burnley

West Ham United recorded an impressive 2-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League last night.

Two goals from the first half from Michail Antonio were enough to cancel Chris Wood’s penalty and seal the three points for the Londoners.

The Hammers have a chance to qualify for the Champions League and last night’s victory will definitely give them a much needed boost.

David Moyes can reasonably be pleased with the performance, with Manuel Lanzini producing an impressive screen in an unknown position.

The midfielder has had a disappointing season, starting just four Premier League games for the Hammers this season.

The West Ham manager used the Argentine midfielder in a deeper role and he excelled alongside Tomas Soucek and Mark Noble.

Lanzini was impressive on the ball and controlled the pace of the game with his targeted pass. Burnley struggled to cope with his flair and agility.

Although he was not so disciplined positionally, the injection of creativity helped the hammers massively in attack.

The 28-year-old worked hard throughout the game, pushing the opponents’ players into error.

Lanzini will hope to build on yesterday’s performance and keep a regular starting place until the end of the season.

Moyes also deserves plenty of praise for letting the player flourish as a central midfielder.

Some West Ham fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance – here’s what they had to say.
