Cheikhou Kouyaté put West Ham 1-0 up against Tottenham Hotspur in today’s game at White Hart Lane. Aaron Cresswell again played provider to add to the argument that he is England’s best left-back, and a more deserving of praise than Man United’s £30m Luke Shaw.
With all the exciting transfers going on at Upton Park over the summer, you couldn’t really blame the Hammers fans for being underwhelmed by the capture of Cresswell from Ipswich Town. But as things have transpired, the left-back has made a strong case so far this campaign for being West Ham’s singing of the season.
Cresswell has started all of West Ham United league games thus far, playing an important role in why the Hammers are enjoying such a good season. His £3.75m fee is starting to look like a real bargain for the Hammers, especially when it is compared to the £30m Louis van Gaal spent on securing the services of Southampton’s Luke Shaw.
