West Ham fans angered on Twitter by Mauro Zarate's 'selfish' performance v Everton

Mauro Zarate

The 28-year-old came on as a substitute for West Ham during their 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday afternoon.

Some West Ham United fans were left angered by Mauro Zarate on Saturday afternoon. The east London side earned a 1-1 draw against Everton and, overall, this was a good point for the Irons.

But some aspects of West Ham's performance left fans disappointed. One was Andy Carroll's display, with the target man struggling for the second week in a row.

Another, however, was Zarate's performance after coming on as a second-half substitute.

To his credit, the 28-year-old took to Twitter to apologise for his cameo - an admirable step not taken by many other professional footballers. And that apology attracted plenty of praise and forgiveness from West Ham fans. Some were still left frustrated by the Argentine, though, and accused of him of producing a 'selfish' display against Everton by never passing or finding the right cross.

The Hammers sit fifth in the Premier League after their 1-1 draw, while the Toffees are four points behind them in eighth.

Here's how West Ham fans reacted on Twitter to Zarate's display v Everton. He has plenty of backing from supporters - but some aren't best pleased!
