Simone Zaza gave a poor display against Accrington in the EFL Cup in West Ham’s 1-0 win on Wednesday – and Hammers fans took to Twitter to air their disappointment at the striker.
The Italy international started the match upfront against the League Two side and played the full 90 minutes, with a Dimitri Payet stoppage-time strike separating the two sides at the London Stadium.
Zaza was heckled throughout the match with many believing that the 25-year-old wasn’t good enough for the West Ham team.
Some supporters thought he looked like he didn’t care, while others suggested that he needed the all important first goal.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Zaza moved to the London Stadium in a loan deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the summer.
There’s a clause in the loan deal that states if Zaza plays in a certain amount of Premier League fixtures then the deal will turn into a permanent move for £17million.
The forward has already started twice in the Premier League in defeats to West Brom and Watford and still remains looking for his first goal.
The Hammers have started the new season in poor form, picking up three points from their opening five fixtures while also being knocked out of the Europa League.
