Some West Ham fans have praised Pablo Fornals after his fine display against Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening.
The 24-year-old joined the Hammers from Villarreal in the summer of 2019 for around £24 million.
The Spaniard made a slow start to life at the London Stadium, but he slowly found his feet. And Fornals has become a regular feature for David Moyes’ side.
The technically gifted midfielder, who earns £60,000 per week (Football Insider), has often been shunted out to the left. The 24-year-old would clearly be more effective playing centrally, but he always does his job to the best of his ability.
Incredibly hard worker
Fornals’ work-rate is second to none, and he will surely continue to get better and better.
The former Villarreal man was very good against Manchester United tonight. He offered solid defensive cover for Aaron Cresswell on the left and used the ball very cleverly when in possession.
The 24-year-old made 36 passes, with a completion rate of 75%. He made four interceptions and five ball recoveries (Football Critic).
Having said all of that, Fornals still needs to be more effective in the final third. It does seem as though he is suffering from a slight lack of confidence at the moment.
A goal or a couple of assists will quickly change all of that, however.

I like Fornals. Proper decent player. However…. you can see he’s got no confidence. Plays like it’s pass the parcel. Needs to slow down and turn on it

See I think Fornals covers well. And his heat map and running stats are decent too.
