West Ham were swept aside by Manchester City at the London Stadium on Saturday, suffering a 4-0 defeat against the Premier League leaders.
A loss against Pep Guardiola’s side was not surprising but it makes for bleak readings for West Ham fans, who have now seen their side lost seven of their opening 13 games in the Premier League this season.
That means there is plenty of room for improvement and the Hammers will be looking to build a run of form over the course of the coming weeks as they have more favourable fixtures on the calendar, starting with a clash against relegation-threatened Newcastle.
While there were some positives to take from the performance against Manchester City, fans have made it clear they do not want to see Arthur Masuaku in the starting line-up again in the near future after a poor display.
After a nightmare 45 minutes, Masuaku was withdrawn at half-time and plenty of West Ham fans took to social media to heap criticism on the defender. We have gathered some of their comments below.
Masuaku the worst player to ever play for west ham. Change my mind

If Cresswell had started that over Masuaku, the result wouldn’t of been so embarrassing. Dreadful decision. Why wasn’t AC brought on for the last 20?

im sorry but sometimes you just have to laugh. leroy sané is taking fake shots in our six-yard box to make it 3-0 after half an hour. arthur masuaku just turns up for a kickabout every saturday and is an absolute joker. never change west ham united club de fútbol.

Masuaku off. Hopefully last time he ever wears a West Ham shirt

You could say the first goal was a stroke of luck but Masuaku was definitely to blame for the other 2 goals, Sterling ghosted past him for both and he didn't even react.

Said 0-4 but we were better than that score. Masuaku was a disgrace how does he get in the team?? City just don’t make errors. That’s the difference ⚒⚒⚒⚒#WHUMCI

Probably the best we’ve played against city at home. Created a lot. Can’t understand why MP persists with Masuaku. He’s an absolute liability.

Every goal down the right side…. what are we doing Masuaku

When will Masuaku ever get dropped forever?
