West Ham fans wax lyrical over Diop display

West Ham United fans have lavished praise on Issa Diop after his performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

The Irons turned in an excellent display in north London, running out 1-0 winners thanks to Michail Antonio’s strike and becoming the first team to beat Spurs at their new stadium in the process.

Diop enjoyed a flawless display in defence, helping to nullify the threats of Son Heung-Min and Fernando Llorente throughout the 90 minutes.

Per WhoScored, Diop collected the joint-highest rating of any Hammer, along with match-winner Antonio.

The 22-year-old completed both of the two tackles he attempted, made seven clearances, six interceptions and also completed the one dribble he attempted, an exceptional run from deep that led to a shot on target.

And fans were delighted with the Frenchman’s display, taking to Twitter to shower him with plaudits. Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
