West Ham got back to winning ways yesterday, beating Burnley 4-2.
Marko Arnautovic and Felipe Anderson twice gave West Ham the lead but Burnley hit back and were heading for a draw.
But a second goal for Anderson put West Ham back ahead and Javier Hernandez killed the game with a fourth.
It was a good all-round performance from the Hammers but one man in particular stood out.
Academy product Grady Diangana has seized his chance in the first-team.
Filling in amid a slight injury crisis, the 20-year-old looked lively all game and was a handful for the Burnley defence.
Operating on the right flank, Diangana gave Burnley’s left-back Charlie Taylor a torrid afternoon in East London.
He should have won a penalty when Steven Defour fouled him. And his clever offload set up Anderson’s first goal, even if he was on the receiving end of a wild James Tarkowski tackle.
The youngster really staked his claim for an extended stay in the first-team with an exceptional performance.
And West Ham fans believe they have a special talent on their hands. This is what the fans were saying about Diangana’s performance.
A new Lanzini, wonderful new talent. He’s drawing some huge fouls as it’s the only way defenders can contain him.
