Despite only managing to steal a point from their home game against Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening, West Ham fans can be encouraged by their teams’ determination, which had been missing in droves during the first part of their campaign.
In a rather uneventful 90 minutes, a Mark Noble penalty helped West Ham back into the game after Christian Benteke had given Palace the lead mid way through the first half. The score remained level throughout the rest of the match but West Ham looked the better of the two sides and had opportunities to take all three points.
One man who particularly impressed for the Hammers was new signing Joao Mario. The Portuguese midfielder, who is valued at £23.4million on Transfermarkt, looked mightily impressive on his Premier League debut, distributing the ball well and contributing defensively too.
After the game, West Ham fans took to Twitter with excitement regarding the performance of their new signing.,.
Joao Mario was very impressive I thought. Neat and tidy in possession was at the heart of most attack’s we mustered together.

Dude Mario is class. If we get a striker and Dendoncker, so is our Europe chances next season.

Joao Mario looks a nice little pick up, even more so with our best players in the side #WHUFC
