'Pathetic', Awful' – West Ham fans destroy one player despite big win v Huddersfield
West Ham fans took to Twitter to bemoan the performance of Aaron Cresswell, despite an easy 4-1 win over Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon.
Mark Noble gave the Hammers the lead in the 25th minute after a bad mistake from Jonas Lossl in the Huddersfield goal.
Joe Lolley equalised for Huddersfield in the 40th minute, but it turned into the Marko Arnautovic show in the second half.
He scored West Ham’s second in the 46th minute and then set up Manuel Lanzini twice, in the 56th and 61st minutes to secure the three points for his team.
Fans were in raptures at the new-found form of Arnautovic after a shaky start to the season under Slaven Bilic, but not all the West Ham players came in for praise.
Aaron Cresswell was blamed for the Huddersfield goal, for turning his back when the opposition players take a shot on goal and for not being able to defend.
Fans think he need to step up and start contributing more to the side but they were over the moon with the three points.
Here is a selection of the best tweets from West Ham fans on Cresswell’s performance:
if you looked at the crossing stats of all of our players you'd be disappointed. Took cresswell 10 attempts to put a decent ball on Carroll's head. If you're gonna complain about Masuaku I think there are 4 or 5 players who id give criticism to before Id comment on Masuaku

Why are we playing Cresswell? He turns his back instead of attacking the ball. Face up or make way for Rice.

Lanzini off the pace with his passing, Cresswell off the pace defending and Kouyate well off the pace at everything

Tidy finish from Noble, final pass has been poor and Cresswell shouldn’t have started over rice

Shame that their player was able to just run past a few bottle jobs to score. Most of the team are playing well but the likes of Cresswell are not pulling their weight.

Cresswell should never have backed off when Noble went to press. Need to double up in those areas.

Cresswell is so bad at defending Now ffs
