West Ham United secured a last-gasp 1-0 win against Swansea City at the London Stadium on Saturday to relieve some of the pressure that has been building on manager Slaven Bilic, but Irons fans weren’t impressed with Andre Ayew’s performance.
The Ghanaian started on the left of midfield as the Croatian boss chose to go with a more conventional 4-4-2 system against the Swans, with his team looking to bounce back from the disappointing 3-2 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
However, the 27-year-old struggled to get involved out wide and he was replaced by Arthur Masuaku in the 78th minute, with another substitute Diafra Sakho netting the decisive goal in injury-time.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the attacker’s showing via social media, and while some said his “continued selection is baffling”, others believe he was “worse than Noble”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I think that answers the question by not addressing the question. It was a dreadful performance for a rag bag of a team. Ayew's continued selection is baffling.

I know what your saying Zone & agree but yesterday his display was embarrassing & that just ain't on Bilic.

Poor workrate, poor distribution, only one foot, doesn’t seem to have the desire or right mentality…I could go on!

I would like to agree but he just looked so lazy today no movement again could be down to training but put in no effort

Ok Ayew was worse than noble and tbh that's the truth

Him or his performance as I've done in the past but to say he was the worse player on the pitch yesterday imo is wrong. Ayew won that award

Give Snakey Sakho a run, Hernadez should benefit from Lanzini return Obiang for Noble.
Oh and somebody wake up Bilic!

Ayew was hands down the worst player on the field, Antoni was unfit and struggled.
