West Ham fans react on Twitter to Matt Jarvis' performance against Sunderland

West Ham fans were unhappy with Matt Jarvis' performance against Sunderland.

West Ham United ended a run of seven games without a win with a 1-0 victory over Sunderland at Upton Park this evening.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce was under major pressure entering the game having won just one of their last 12 Premier League games - and he may have bought himself a little more time after this win.

Sunderland were managed by new boss Dick Advocaat for the first time since his appointment on Tuesday, but the Dutchman headed back to the North East empty handed.

Diafra Sakho struck an 88th minute winner for West Ham, and there was clear relief around Upton Park after their recent winless run.

It wasn't all celebration from West Ham fans though, with many taking to Twitter to air their disappointment at the display from winger Matt Jarvis.

Jarvis, 28, has been with West Ham for nearly three years having made the move from Wolverhampton Wanderers, but despite having one England cap to his name, Jarvis has been disappointing in East London.

With just six goals in 78 games for the Hammers, Jarvis hasn't produced like Sam Allardyce will have wanted him to - and whilst he's been out of the team for large parts of the season, he started against Sunderland.

However, his poor performance in the first half meant manager Allardyce substituted at half time, bringing on striker Carlton Cole in his place.

Fans were unsurprisingly critical of Jarvis on Twitter after the game, with some suggesting that the likes of Nene or Morgan Amalfitano should be playing in his place - whilst other's believe he isn't good enough for the Premier League.
