'League One quality', 'Woeful footballer' - West Ham fans destroy player after display against Liverpool

By Harry Sykes

Jonathan Calleri spearheaded the West Ham attack in their 4-0 hammering at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday – and fans took to Twitter to destroy the striker.

Calleri played 55 minutes of the London Stadium encounter but made little impact as the visitors gave their hopes of a top-four finish a massive boost.

A Philippe Coutinho double and strikes from Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi propelled Liverpool back to third in the Premier League table, re-opening their four-point gap on Arsenal, who annihilated Stoke on Saturday evening.

Argentine, Calleri, 23, has struggled to make an impact at West Ham during his season-long loan, with his 19 matches yielding a single goal.

His return has prompted criticism from supporters, who have questioned whether he is of the calibre required for a Premier League striker.

That criticism from West Ham fans reached fever pitch on Sunday afternoon following his performance against Liverpool.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

West Ham’s defeat comes nine days after the team ended Tottenham’s title hopes with a 1-0 win on the most memorable occasion yet since they moved to the London Stadium.

It has been a hugely disappointing campaign for the Hammers after their seventh place finish last season.

The heavy defeat against Liverpool means they drop to 12th in the table.

In other West Ham news, the club’s supporters have gone berserk after one of the team’s best players dropped a massive hint on social media that he is quitting within weeks.
