West Ham United made it eight points from their five Premier League matches this season with a goalless draw against Aston Villa on Monday night.
The Hammers actually finished the contest with 10 men as Arthur Masuaku picked up a second yellow card in the 67th minute.
Following the sending off, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini decided to replace Felipe Anderson with Pablo Zabaleta in order to get an extra defender on the field.

It was not a surprise that Zabaleta entered the action as the visitors looked to consolidate.
However, it would be fair to say that the decision to replace Anderson did not go down very well with the West Ham fans on social media.

All things considered, a point away to Villa is far from a disastrous result, particularly with Masuaku’s red card making it a difficult conclusion.
That said, the London club’s fans hated the tactical decision from Pellegrini, as shown by the Twitter reaction below:
