Danny Gabbidon has hailed the performances of Aaron Cresswell and Winston Reid on Twitter after the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Hammers claimed victory after a first half Manuel Lanzini goal, which was assisted by full-back Cresswell.
The defensive pair helped their side keep a clean sheet at the other end of the pitch too, but Cresswell received what Gabbidon described as an “unjust” red card on the 76th minute after what referee Martin Atkinson saw as two bookable offences.
Gabbidon, who played for the Hammers for six years picked out Reid as “outstanding”, while hailing Cresswell as “brilliant” on his personal Twitter account.
Winston Reid outstanding ?? Cresswell brilliant too before that unjust sending off ?? #WHUFC

The win against Palace marked West Ham’s first victory in five Premier League encounters and they now sit in 15th place in the Premier League table with seven points from eight fixtures.
They face a battle against bottom of the league Sunderland in their next league clash, which Slaven Bilic will see as a good opportunity to push on with another victory.
The east Londoners will be looking to try and replicate their previous season’s form and earn a spot in the Europa League in their new London Stadium home.
