Gianluca Scamacca is in an absolute class of his own at West Ham United and is streets ahead of any other attacker we have.

The 23-year-old has one of the most ferocious shots in the game and his touch, awareness and movement is exemplary.

Scamacca stood out today for West Ham, especially during the first-half.

The way he held onto the ball with strength and finesse was a joy to watch. His ability to lay the ball off at the perfect weight was also a sight to behold.

He was unlucky not to score as well, and went very close to hitting the back of the net a couple of times.

The £35 million (Sky Sports) that David Moyes paid to bring him to the London Stadium will end up being an absolute bargain in my opinion.

He certainly showed his class once again this afternoon at St Mary’s…

The Italian is technically brilliant. He offers us so much with his back to goal and when he’s facing goal.

Some of the touches that he showed today were quite simply sensational.

And the way that he got control of the ball and spread it out wide with precision added so much potency to our play in the final third.

The one problem I have is that Moyes doesn’t set up with players close enough to Scamacca.

We could end up in a similar situation to the one we had with Sebastien Haller if we’re not careful.

Gianluca Scamacca proved today against Southampton that he could be a huge player for West Ham United.

Let’s just hope that David Moyes provides him with an opportunity to succeed at the London Stadium by setting his team up to get the best out of him.
