Gokhan Tore felt the fire of West Ham fans as they targeted him on Twitter following his performance against Manchester City.

Tore, 24, joined West Ham on a season-long loan this summer from Besiktas, with the option of a permanent transfer, but the midfielder has struggled to adjust since his move.

The Hammers suffered a 3-1 away defeat at Man City which leaves them with just three points from their opening three games.

Tore was replaced at half-time by Slaven Bilic, with Sam Sam Byram coming on, to cap a miserable Sunday afternoon for the midfielder.

A Raheem Sterling brace and Fernandinho goal ensured the points for Man City, although the Hammers produced a stronger second-half with Michail Antonio scoring a header to get them back in the game at 2-1.

The West Ham supporters gave a thorough assessment of Tore’s performance, with one fan harshly claiming “he is the worst winger I’ve ever seen at the club”.

The Turkey international was a long-term target for West Ham, with manager Slaven Bilic having worked with him when they were together at Besiktas.

Tore had a steady season in 2015-16, scoring six goals and providing nine assists in 35 appearances for Besiktas.

He has made 26 appearances for Turkey, but hasn’t scored a goal for his national team.

In other West Ham team news, the club’s star has been rewarded with his first international call-up.
