At the moment, there are not many West Ham players who are willing to take responsibility on the ball and make things happen.
The Hammers are clearly lacking any kind of confidence and most of our flair players seem to be scared to lose the ball or make an error, mostly because of the emphasis that David Moyes places on defensive solidarity and SAFETY FIRST!
If we are to stay up, we need our best attacking players to show up and be counted, and one man in particular did exactly that this afternoon…
One West Ham player put in superb display against Aston Villa
The 27-year-old scored a penalty and constantly tried to make things happen for the Hammers.
Benrahma was relentless down out left hand flank and was a menace for the Villa defenders.
The Algerian attempted 10 shots and hit the target with five of them. He had 51 touches and made two key passes. Benrahma also whipped seven crosses into the Villa box (Who Scored).
That to me proves that Said Benrahma didn’t stop trying to make things happen for West Ham against Aston Villa.
The 27-year-old can be an absolute game-changer for us and it’s nice to see that he’s started to try and produce the goods on his own, rather than sticking to Moyes’s rigid plan for him.
Benrahma is a very special player on his day, and if he continues this form, he could be the difference between us staying up or going down.
