It’s been a season of immense ups and downs for Arthur Masuaku, starting with a performance in the 4-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford that had pundits questioning his professionalism and commitment. That was, of course, followed by the infamous spitting incident during an FA Cup tie with Wigan in January.
Yet, since David Moyes took the helm and moved Masuaku out to left wing-back, the Frenchman has enjoyed a telling impact on the Irons’ results.
In the Premier League this season, the east London club have averaged 0.6 more points and 0.8 more goals per game with the 24-year-old at left wing-back, and the Hammers fittingly picked up a huge win against Southampton last Saturday upon Masuaku’s return to the starting XI.
With that in mind, we asked West Ham fans earlier this week whether Masuaku is now the club’s most important player in terms of results, and although opinions were relatively split, 59% of those who took part in our poll voted yes.
Have you forgiven Masuaku for his sending off against Wigan, West Ham fans? Let us know by commenting below…
