West Ham United suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against fellow strugglers Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, and Irons fans weren’t impressed with Aaron Cresswell’s performance.
The east London outfit came into the clash against the Toffees on the back of a 1-1 draw against Leicester City at the London Stadium on Friday night, and they knew their opponents had suffered successive 5-1 and 4-1 losses.
However, a hat-trick from Wayne Rooney and a late header from Ashley Williams gave the hosts a comprehensive victory, although things may have been different had Manuel Lanzini not missed a penalty and Cresswell’s fine effort not crashed off of the crossbar.
The left-back did improve after the break following a poor first-half of mis-placed passes and poor crosses, but it wasn’t enough to appease the Hammers faithful.
West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the 27-year-old’s display, and while one simply said he “is the worst”, another said the club “should have sold Cresswell to Liverpool two seasons ago when he was playing rather well”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Was at Goodison tonight. Would have been a different game if Lanzini put the penalty away ?
Kouyate, Cresswell, Obiang out of their depth and have been all season ?
Wilshere & Carvalho please ?#COYI

Should have sold Cresswell to liverpool 2 seasons ago when he was playing rather well and held a value.

Cresswell scares the life outta me but who else is there ? Martinez in for Sakho I don't think he should be at our club

So lack lustre in the 1st half , you wonder about the mentality of the players. They obviously thought they would win easy. Defence is abysmal. 1 player to pick out Cresswell shadow of player he was @WestHamUtd

Cresswell is the worse….. I’ve learnt a lot about his attitude off the pitch that would surprise a lot of people and I’m he’s biggest fan

Wouldn't mind if I never saw Cresswell play for West Ham again.

Cresswell, Obiang, Kouyate, Sakho, Ogbonna, Fernandes, all divas that aren’t fit to fight for West Ham United. Not good enough.
Rice, Noble, Antonio & Collins are needed ASAP.
