West Ham fans react on Twitter to Enner Valencia's performance against Hull

West Ham Upton Park

Summer signing Enner Valencia marked Monday night's first Premier League start at Hull City with a stunning goal, but how did West Ham United fans react to his performance?

Enner Valencia showed just why West Ham United splashed out £12 million to sign him this summer in Monday night's 2-2 draw away to Hull City, with a sublime goal during his first significant taste of Premier League action.

Arriving from Mexican club Pachuca after impressing at the World Cup in Brazil, fitness issues postponed the Ecuadorian striker's first top-flight start, but his 50th-minute long-range strike to level the game at 1-1 was well worth the wait, and left Hammers fan excited about what the future has in store for their new marksman.

Valencia had previously started last month's Capital One Cup tie against Sheffield United, but a missed penalty during the 5-4 shootout defeat, as well as a number of wasted opportunities over the course of the 120 minutes, served as a far from encouraging sign going forward.

Nevertheless, Sam Allardyce decided it was time to show some faith in the 25-year-old front man after restricting him to two cameos off the bench in the league before the international break, and it was clear that supporters appreciated the manager's decision judging from the reaction.
