'Might actually be a god' - West Ham fans rave over one man in win v Chelsea
West Ham fans have been left raving on social media over the performance of Arthur Masuaku in the club’s 1-0 win over Chelsea at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Hammers took the lead against their London rivals through Marko Arnautovic, the Austrian netting with a drilled shot after some good work in the box, with what was his first goal for the club since signing from Stoke City over the summer.
It was a match in which many of the Hammers’ stars impressed up and down the pitch, frustrating Antonio Conte and his side, with full back Arthur Masuaku picking up many plaudits for his display on the left flank.
He demonstrated excellent close control with the ball when pushing forward, while he was also resolute at the back to help grind out a win over the reigning Premier League champions, which led to fans turning to Twitter to voice their delight.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Masuaku is a very exciting and skillful player but he needs to know when it's wise to do that and when it's wiser to clear the ball
