West Ham fans slam Marko Arnautovic following last-gasp Huddersfield win


The West Ham faithful have taken to social media in their droves this evening, to take aim at Marko Arnautovic.

West Ham 4-3 Huddersfield

The Hammers welcomed basement-dwellers Huddersfield to the London Stadium a short time ago, for a Premier League clash.

Hosts West Ham were unbeaten in their 6 home outings across all competition before this afternoon, including victories in their last 2.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, hadn’t picked up a victory away from home since last November.

As such, it came as a massive surprise when Jan Siewert’s men headed into the closing quarter of an hour at the London Stadium with a 2-goal advantage.

After Mark Noble had set up what was expected to be a comfortable day’s work for West Ham with the game’s opening goal from the penalty spot in the 15th-minute, visitors Huddersfield roared back with 3 goals of their own, courtesy of Juninho Bacuna and Karlan Grant (2).

The Terriers’ defensive frailties saw Angelo Ogbonna pull one back for West Ham 15 minutes from time, though, before Javier Hernandez set up a frantic finish to the clash with an 84th-minute header.

And substitute Hernandez went on to seal a dramatic comeback for the home side deep into injury-time, netting another header to secure all 3 points for Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

‘Arnautovic is finished’

While West Ham eventually managed to bag a victory this afternoon, the capital outfit’s performance nevertheless left a lot to be desired.

As such, large sections of the club’s fans have since made their frustrations clear, with one player to have been singled out for particularly-heavy abuse, largely for his attitude, having been Marko Arnautovic.

The latest underwhelming showing on the part of the Austrian attacker eventually saw Arnautovic replaced in the 68th-minute, a move which played a huge role in West Ham turning things around:
