West Ham fans react on Twitter to Kevin Nolan's performance against Liverpool

Upton Park

West Ham United lost 2-0 to Liverpool on Saturday but what did Hammers fans make of Kevin Nolan's performance?

West Ham United have enjoyed a wonderful season thus far, but they lost 2-0 away to Liverpool on Saturday to see them slip one place in the Premier League table.

The Reds leap-frogged the Hammers into seventh place after goals from Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge secured the victory. But there is still plenty for West Ham and their supporters to be excited about in the coming  months.

Cheikhou Kouyate's absence due to the Africa Cup of Nations has certainly impacted West Ham's performances and manager Sam Allardyce will surely want the midfielder back on the field as soon as possible; but it was the continued presence of another player that had Hammers fans talking during and after the game.

Kevin Nolan has made 21 appearances for West Ham this season but yesterday he had a game to forget.

As you can see from the statistics below, Nolan's passing accuracy was just 46 per cent, while he failed to play any key passes and neither of his shots found the target let alone the back of the net.

Nolan did make three interceptions and win four tackles but his overall contribution was not enough to ensure Allardyce's men headed back to London with a point or three.
