West Ham’s winless streak was extended to three matches after a 1-1 draw with Leicester City on Saturday as the Hammers suffered heartbreak with Wilfred Ndidi’s late equaliser from the hosts.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side took the lead through Fabian Balbuena, scoring his first goal for the club, but were handed a mountain to climb after Mark Noble’s first-half dismissal left the Hammers playing the entirety of the second period with ten men.

Despite a valiant performance, West Ham were forced to share the points but plenty of supporters were pleased with the performance of summer signing Balbuena – who provided an impact at both ends of the field.

The centre-back was superb and unfortunate to see Ndidi’s strike deflect off him and past Fabianski but it did not overshadow the performance of the 27-year-old, who was heralded as the best West Ham player of the day.

Rock-solid in defence and scoring a close-range finish, West Ham fans took to social media to praise the Paraguayan defender and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
