West Ham are struggling for form this season but there has been some positive signs emerging from Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
19-year-old Declan Rice continues to be a valuable member of the first-team squad, establishing himself as one of the first names on the team sheet, while fellow academy graduate Grady Diangana is also pushing for regular opportunities.
The future, therefore, appears to be bright for the Hammers and West Ham fans on social media have started to get excited about another young talent on their books, with Marcus Browne excelling on loan with Oxford United.
20-year-old midfielder Browne has contributed two goals and an assist in 13 League One matches this season, most recently catching the eye with a superb piece of skill that soon went viral on social media.
His display also caught the attention of former Hammers defender Paul Konchesky, who was clearly impressed, and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Easy Pal ????????????????????????????????????
