West Ham were dealt late heartbreak as Marcus Rashford scored in injury time to hand Manchester United all three points at Old Trafford. 

The Hammers were forced out of the top four by their hosts despite being more than competitive in an even contest. 

One man who came in for criticism following the defeat was attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini.

The 28-year-old Argentine was the target of much of the disappointment of Irons’ fans on social media. 

Lanzini was rated a lowly 6.20 for the display containing 65 touches, one foul and losing possession on nine occasions (Sofascore). 

This season the former Al-Jazira ace has scored six times and provided two assists in 27 appearances across all competitions. 


This was far from a vintage display all-around in truth, but Lanzini seemed to particularly struggle. 

Capable of the sublime, the five-cap Argentinian is often overlooked as a possible substitute due to the ability to produce that match-defining moment. 

On this occasion, however, perhaps David Moyes would’ve been better off making that call. 

With the likes of Nikola Vlasic, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma back in situ, the £9million valued creator will need to go up a level or two to remain a regular in this side.

Should Manuel Lanzini Start Against Watford?
