West Ham ace Said Benrahma made huge statement vs Tottenham after claims he could be sold

Said Benrahma put in a truly sensational performance for West Ham United against Tottenham this afternoon.

In fact, it could be argued that it was his best display in a Hammers shirt.

The 26-year-old joined West Ham from Brentford in October 2020.

He ended up joining on a permanent £25 million deal in January 2021, having spent the previous three months at the London Stadium on a £4 million loan deal (Eurosport).

The Algeria international did find some form during the first couple of months of this season but then went through a really bad patch.

Benny’s confidence seemed to be shot to bits. And he wasn’t really having any kind of influence on the games for the Hammers.

David Moyes was allegedly considering selling the former Brentford winger in the summer according to club insiders Claret and Hugh.

After his performance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium today though, Moyes must have changed his mind…surely.

Benrahma exceptional for West Ham against Tottenham

The 26-year-old winger scored a brilliant goal for the Hammers against Spurs.

It wasn’t just the goal that made the Algerian’s performance a brilliant one, however. He put in a real shift defensively and every time he got the ball he was a real threat.

Benrahma embarked on a mazy run midway through the second-half and carried the ball from deep inside his own half right up into the final third. He beat a couple of Spurs players in the process and it was evidence of just how good he can be.

Benrahma has nine goals and six assists to his name this season now (Transfermarkt). That’s a pretty decent return.

Hopefully we start seeing the best of Benrahma now on a more consistent basis. The Algerian winger has a special kind of talent and when he’s on his game, he can be unplayable.

Losing to Tottenham was obviously hugely disappointing. But Benrahma’s performance was a silver lining.
