Fellaini firing at will; West Ham duo clearing the lines

Date published: Tuesday 24th January 2017 8:30

Marouane Fellaini registered a high in shots on target, while West Ham’s back line are doing their job perfectly.

Brazilian star Firmino netted a brilliant double against Swansea on Saturday – though his brace was unable to prevent a costly home defeat to Swansea. You can read our Player Ratings from the game here.

Meanwhile, much has been made of Payet’s refusal to play for West Ham – but in Lanzini, West Ham may feel they have the man to step into his shoes right under their nose with the Hammers continuing their climb up the table with Saturday’s 3-1 win at Middlesbrough.
