West Ham fans single out Angelo Ogbonna for praise despite Everton defeat as he reaches 100 Premier League appearances

West Ham were poor as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat at home to Everton, once again missing the chance to jump into seventh place.

After Wolves and Watford dropped points earlier in the day, West Ham had a golden opportunity to leapfrog them as they hosted Everton.

But the Hammers dropped into the bottom half of the table after goals from Kurt Zouma and Bernard sealed a 2-0 win for the visitors.

After the game, the vast majority of West Ham’s team was slated by fans, although Angelo Ogbonna was singled out for praise.

His central defensive partner Issa Diop struggled but Ogbonna ensured that it was only two goals conceded.

It was also a landmark occasion for the Italy international, who made his 100th Premier League appearance for the Irons.

After the game, Ogbonna posted a tweet to acknowledge his landmark, describing how he was “proud” to have achieved this at West Ham.

The 30-year-old also conceded that the result was not as he had hoped but West Ham fans did not blame him.

Ogbonna has been criticised in the past but here is a selection of tweets from West Ham fans jumping to his defence after the Everton loss.
