The Argentine has just recovered from a serious injury suffered during the World Cup.

Manuel Lanzini didn’t have a great outing against London-rivals Chelsea and has faced a lot of flaks from the Hammers’ supporters on the social media platform Twitter.

Chelsea beat West Ham United 2-0 in a game that witnessed Eden Hazard present a world-class display of what he might be doing at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.

With the win, Chelsea, have kept their hopes of Champions League football alive while the loss for the Manuel Pellegrini’s men ensured that they are not going to Europe next season, even if they will all their remaining fixtures.

While almost every player of Hammers was not up to the mark, Lanzini was the one who received the most beatings on social media. Lanzini who has just recovered from a rupture of his anterior cruciate ligament in his knee has the burden of expectations of the Hammers.

The player who suffered the injury during the World Cup looks like hasn’t recovered from it yet. The performances haven’t been inspiring, and the player has been questioned for his displays far often than not since returning.


After the loss against Chelsea particularly, the Hammers have asked the player to step up or leave the club. Lanzini earns £70k-a-week, a huge sum for the Hammers to pay for someone who isn’t performing.

With the transfer not working well for the two parties, Hammers looking for better performers, players with more impact in the centre of the park and the player struggling with his injury and fitness, it is the time for the two to decide what the future holds for them.

Lanzini would like more patience from the highly impatient critiques while the Hammers’ supporters ask for impactful performances from the Argentinean.

Some of the tweets in which Lanzini has been criticised are shown below.
