The strike from Alese was quite simply sensational.

In fact, Hammers reporter Roshane Thomas described the strike as the best goal he has seen from a West Ham player this season:

The highlights from the game will be on West Ham’s YouTube channel tomorrow.

Alese is the real deal. At just 20, he still has a long way to go before he’s a Premier League regular for West Ham. The Hammers starlet has all of the attributes required to make it at the very highest level though.

The fact that he is left footed means that he’s the ideal long-term replacement for Angelo Ogbonna. He proved today that he is very good at carrying the ball out of the back as well – a quality that is seemingly becoming more and more popular for centre-backs with every month that passes.

The future looks very bright for the Hammers. Alese is a particularly bright talent. And he enjoyed a wonderful day at the office once again this afternoon.
