West Ham United could only manage a draw at home to Crystal Palace in the English Premier League on Tuesday night but there were still positives to take from the match for supporters.
Having suffered defeat in the FA Cup at the weekend, it was important for the Hammers not to lose and the point earned against the Eagles sees them move up to 10th position in the league table.
The visitors actually went ahead in the match thanks to Christian Benteke, but a Mark Noble penalty salvaged the draw, leaving fans mostly content.
Central to the performance was Javier Hernandez, who looked much brighter compared to recent form that has left many supporters questioning his future at the club.
While he didn’t find the back of the net, he won the penalty that Noble converted and the Mexican will now be hoping to build on the five goals he has scored so far this season.
Fans took to Twitter to discuss his performance…

As for Chicharito, I honestly think this was his best game for us thus far. Hold up play much improved and distribution good aswell. #COYI

Some great stuff at LS yesterday. One guy lost his shit when chicarito didn't manage to do more with a ball punted to his head in the centre circle with no other West Ham player within 30 yards of him. Thought he looked better yesterday and will benefit from a run of games. #COYI

Nice to see Chicharito putting a bit of a shift in.
I can tell you one thing for certain, he’s never played football like this before. Feel a bit sorry for him.

Thought Chicharito looked a lot more interested tonight and played well. So unlucky not to score. Just seen the save again. Noticed he didn't rush off the pitch at the end, which is a first 😂
