West Ham fans loved Pablo Fornals’ display against Bournemouth

The second David Moyes era is up and running with a bang at West Ham United.

The Scotsman took charge of the club for the first time on New Year’s Day following a period in which he was out of football management for nearly eighteen months.

His appointment was far from a popular one but the result on Wednesday is likely to have strengthened his standing among the London Stadium faithful.

A 4-0 victory was just reward for an exciting performance from the clinical hosts, and naturally a handful of individuals were showered with praise in the aftermath of proceedings.

One of those players was creative midfielder Pablo Fornals, who has established himself as a regular in the starting XI in recent weeks.

Fans on Twitter were eager to pay tribute to his performance and didn’t hold back with their glowing praise.

It’s not been a seamless transition into English football for Fornals since completing a £24m transfer in the summer but there is evidence to suggest he has turned a corner of late.

The Spaniard didn’t score or assist in his first 12 games for the club but after a period of acclimatisation he has scored one and assisted three in his last seven fixtures.

Was Fornals worth £24m?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And this fan suggested that he has begun to find some form following a difficult opening to his career in east London.

Social media is a hub for hyperbole and one comment on the 23-year-old rather epitomised that trait.

An excited supporter suggested Fornals was showing shades of Andres Iniesta against the Cherries in a relatively tongue-in-cheek assessment of the Spanish playmaker.

“Wand of a left foot”… West Ham fans were absolutely ecstatic with one man’s display against Bournemouth…
