Mohamed Diame produced a match winning performance for Hull City last night, inspiring a 2-0 away win over Cardiff City.
Diame was making just his third start of the season, and scored eight minutes in, before providing an assist for Abel Hernandez's second half goal.
The midfielder was selected by Steve Bruce in an attacking midfield role, a change from the defensive midfield position he impressed in for former clubs West Ham and Wigan.
Despite this he pressed from the front, managing three tackles, the joint highest of any Hull midfielder - matching Tom Huddlestone.
Hull fans were impressed with his display, taking to Twitter to praise his game changing performance...
If Mo Diame stays fit. We should go up. Best midfielder we have by far.— Rob Jefferson (@Jeffo87) September 15, 2015
The prospect of a fully fit Mohamed Diame playing week in week out in the Championship is quite exciting... #hcafc— Brad Rial (@BradRial) September 15, 2015
Great away win by City. 3-5-2 worked for us in 12/13 and it's worked tonight. Decent goal and assist from Diame who was class #hcafc— Hull Transfers (@HullTransfers) September 15, 2015
The best midfielder in the championship, MO DIAME. #hcafc— Jordan Tyson (@jordantyson92) September 15, 2015
This is Diame's second season at Hull, after signing last season from West Ham. It was a transfer which backfired, with the midfielder believing he was joining a club on the up, only to see them suffer relegation.
Diame's campaign was wrecked by injury in his debut year, making just 10 starts in the Premier League, with two more appearances from the bench.
The 28-year-old left in acrimonious circumstances, having fallen out with manager Sam Allardyce, with London 24 reporting that he told the Hull Daily Mail he was played out of position as a winger.
His performance last night was a reminder to fans of his former club of his ability, and misfortune to have dropped a division to the Championship.
Here is a look at what they had to say after hearing of Diame's impact...
Someone called Diame just scored for Hull City in the Championship. Anyone heard of him?— West Ham COYI (@TheHammers_) September 15, 2015
Diame will be a beast in the championship if they keep him fit— Josh Catterson (@TheJCTrain) September 15, 2015
