Plenty of West Ham United fans are pouring praise on Angelo Ogbonna following his performance in Saturday’s 1-0 win against Chelsea.
Aaron Cresswell’s goal clinched all three points for the Hammers at Stamford Bridge, but Ogbonna’s defensive work didn’t go unnoticed.
These West Ham supporters acknowledged his display, with some even touting him as the player of the season so far…

READ WEST HAM VERDICT
Ogbonna has been mightily impressive for West Ham this season and it was truly surprising to see him get dropped last month.
He’s been the club’s best defender for sure, but you could make a very strong argument that he’s been the club’s best player this term.
With a trusted pair of hands behind them, Ogbonna and Issa Diop have the potential to form a strong partnership in the heart of the defence.
The squad will be looking to use the weekend’s huge triumph to pick up a bit of form going into a crucial stage of the campaign.
