West Ham fans react on Twitter to Pedro Obiang's performance

Pedro Obiang impressed as West Ham beat Bournemouth.

Dmitri Payet will grab the headlines after helping to inspire West Ham to a win at Bournemouth, but Pedro Obiang was a real unsung hero.

The midfielder was excellent in the middle of the park, helping Slaven Bilic's side get a hold of the game, and proving why he deserved to keep Alex Song out of the starting line-up.

Obiang was signed from Sampdoria in the summer but found his start to life at the club delayed by injury. He is beginning to now really establish himself, and his display in the 3-1 win over Bournemouth was one of his best for the club.

He was effective in midfield alongside Mark Noble, who played well once again, and completed all 90 minutes.

It was just the sixth start the Spaniard has made this season for West Ham in the Premier League, with a further eight appearances from the bench.

Obaing's game is not flashy. He did not have a shot at goal or create a chance for a teammate, but he was effective in possession, and competitive in the ground and in the air, giving his side a real edge.

Supporters are becoming increasingly impressed with the 23-year-old, taking to twitter to praise his display. Here is a look at the comments after and during the game...
