West Ham lost to Arsenal at the Emirates today somehow.
The Hammers looked by far the more dangerous out of the two sides.
The east London outfit defended resolutely for the entirety of the game, and they were unlucky to concede late on.
At the heart of West Ham’s solid defensive display was the ever consistent Angelo Ogbonna.
The 31-year-old has been quite simply superb this season. And as things stand, he is clearly one of the front-runners for the Hammer of the Year award.
The Italian joined West Ham from Juventus in the summer of 2015 for around £10 million (BBC).
And Ogbonna has gone on to establish himself as very much a fan favourite at the London Stadium.
In spite of his advancing years, the Italian is still in immaculate shape, and he probably has many years left ahead of him in the game.
West Ham really need Ogbonna to continue this solid form between now and the end of the season, if they are to avoid relegation.
And some Hammers fans raved about the 31-year-old’s display against Arsenal today…
Ogbonna for sure

Ogbonna, Been brilliant this season and getting better every game

We look so better defensively. Ogbonna & Diop have been brilliant. I’m gutted. In a game where you miss 4/5 guilt edge chances, to lose 1-0 is a real sickener.

Ogbonna & Diop were outstanding today. Looking like they have finally found a link between them to help make them both better.

Ogbonna for me. Rice was good again though.
