West Ham fans wowed by newbie

West Ham have restored the feel-good factor to the London Stadium in the past week, after they followed up a last-gasp victory over Sunderland with an impressive 2-1 beating of Chelsea in the EFL Cup.

The Hammers’ win sees them set-up an intriguing quarter-final tie with Manchester United at the end of November and shows Slaven Bilic’s side possess a strong chance of going all the way, as the likes of Tottenham and Manchester City also tumbled out of the competition this week.

On a superb evening for the Hammers, youngster Edimilson Fernandes stood out after his impressive performance, which he capped off with a goal, and caught the eyes of many fans watching the game.

The 20-year-old was signed in the summer from FC Sion but has had limited opportunities thus far, although his performance last night could lead to more chances in the first-team at a crucial stage in West Ham’s season.

The Hammers face a tricky trip to Goodison Park this weekend to face Everton, before clashes with Stoke City, Tottenham and a double-header against Manchester United in the league and cup.

Could Edimilson Fernandes feature in that run? We shall see, but many fans were thrilled and took to social media to celebrate his performance.
