West Ham were put to the test by Gillingham in the FA Cup third round tonight, and some Hammers fans absolutely slaughtered Arthur Masuaku for his shocking display.

The 26-year-old moved to the London Stadium from Olympiacos in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be worth £6 million (Sky Sports).

Masukau has been incredibly inconsistent ever since then, however.

His best performances for West Ham have been when deployed in an attacking role.

Considering the fact that he is supposed to be a left-back, however, his defending leaves a lot to be desired.

It seems as though West Ham need to strengthen in the left-back department, and quick. Masuaku is clearly not good enough for the very highest level.

The Democratic Republic of Congo international lacks any kind of discipline and he is often found wanting positionally.

He really needs to get back to basics. The Hammers man is 26 now, and really needs to start showing that he has what it takes to make it in the Premier League.

Masuaku did himself no favours whatsoever with his display at the Priestfield Stadium tonight.

And some West Ham fans absolutely slated the Congolese left-back for his performance against the Gills…

 

And the tweets kept coming…
