West Ham United got back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon with an utterly dominant 4-2 thrashing of Burnley at the London Stadium. Goals from Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez, coming either side of a Felipe Anderson brace, were enough to secure a much-needed three points for the Hammers.
Anderson came into the match under some pressure from the Irons fans as he has failed to show consistently good form since his £40 million arrival from Lazio in the summer. However, Manuel Pellegrini retained his faith in the attacking midfielder and was rewarded with a fine performance from the Brazilian.
The 25-year-old has certainly got a lot of Hammers fans back on his side with his impressive display and they will all be hoping that his career in east London can now kick on from here.
After the thumping win against Burnley, many West Ham fans took to Twitter to celebrate Anderson’s much improved performance…
Got to give it to Anderson, absouletley fantastic performance. I wonder if Cresswell gives that protection for him to get forward more than Mas. Whatever has happened though, look may it continue.

This is the £40m Felipe Anderson we have all been waiting for. 2 goals to his name which will give him a massive confidence boost. A special mention to Diangana who is growing with confidence game by game. Well deserved victory, onto Huddersfield next
