'Pathetic', 'Absolutely abysmal' – West Ham fans done with one player after shocker v Swansea
It’s been a day to forget for West Ham.
First they lost Angelo Ogbonna and James Collins before kick-off to illness and a hamstring injury respectively.
Then they lost Winston Reid after 20 minutes to a nasty looking injury, with the player receiving oxygen on the pitch and getting treatment for a good five minutes before he was replaced by Sam Byram.
By that time they were already a goal down from Ki Sung-yeung and it got worse when Mike van der Hoorn put the home side two up by half-time.
This is against a team that was still in the relegation spots at the start of the day, although they’ve been transformed under new manager Carlos Carvalhal.
West Ham were a sorry state though and Cheikhou Kouyaté was the chief culprit for the Hammers.

In the end Swansea ran out 4-1 winners, with only a late goal from Michail Antonio to serve as consolation for Hammers fans who’s travelled to freezing Wales.
Kouyate played the full 90 minutes to the surprise of a lot of people, but fans don’t want to see him again in a hurry.
Here are the best reactions from frustrated West ham fans after an afternoon to forget:
Why is kouyate on the pitch still? ????

Pathetic. Heartless performance when they need to invest everything. Antonio in, Mario in, Evra out, Kouyate out. Really hard to watch this, so dissapointing.

Take Kouyate off and we will instantly improve

They are all useless, Kouyate can't make a 3 yard pass FFS

Evra is awful
Adrian is awful
Kouyate is awful
Byram is awful

Noble back to his very slow best. Kouyate off somewhere else not sure if he even knows where. Clueless going forward so it's give up possession and see if they get another ????

Literally have no midfield. Noble and Kouyate have both been absolutely abysmal

Mario on for Kouyate, who has been pathetic. This is atrocious.
