West Ham United fans were full of praise for Manuel Lanzini after the attacking midfielder scored the winning goal in their morale-boosting 1-0 win against arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur at a rejuvenated London Stadium on Friday night.
The Irons went into the game knowing that not only could they guarantee their spot in the Premier League next season with a victory, but that they could also all but end Spurs’ chances of winning the Premier League title.
The Argentine star’s scrappy second half goal accomplished both of those missions and proved to be the difference between the two teams as the Hammers moved into the top half of the table, with their opponents from the capital looking set to lose out to Chelsea for the prestigious trophy.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the performance of the 24-year-old via social media, with many believing that he is the heartbeat of the team after another amazing performance.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
