West Ham fans slam Lanzini for performance

West Ham United fans have quite rightly slammed Manuel Lanzini for his performance against Everton.

The Hammers drew 1-1 with Everton on Saturday as manager David Moyes continued his poor run against the Toffees; he has only beaten them once as a manager since leaving the club to join Manchester United in 2013.

Should Pellegrini start Fornals, Lanzini or both?

Lanzini was substituted in the 84th minute and replaced by striker Albian Ajeti as something of a final throw of the dice.

They were unable to break through, however, and were left to settle for a share of the points, and fans picked out the playmaker as a major reason for what was ultimately a poor overall performance, quite correctly.

Per WhoScored, Lanzini had 50 touches of the ball but struggled to do anything with them.

Call yourself a West Ham expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?

How much did West Ham pay to sign Jordan Hugill from Preston North End?

Indeed, he failed to have a shot on goal or complete a dribble and was dispossessed twice throughout the game.

It has been a disappointing season for Lanzini; he has failed to score a goal and has provided just three assists this term, with the last coming in a November clash with Newcastle United.

As one fan mentions, the Argentine has not kicked on since signing a new contract at the start of the season, and it feels as though a tipping point could be reached with supporters.

As his stats show, this was an anonymous performance from a player that is widely regarded as being able to pick the lock and create chances for his side.

He can ill-afford to keep doing this or he will find himself out of the team.

Meanwhile, West Ham cannot afford to snub a European ace.
