The Hammers drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

West Ham United midfielder Manuel Lanzini was in fine form at Upton Park as his side drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace.

In a hugely controversial game, a contentious red card for midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate allowed the Eagles to secure a much needed the point.

The Hammers had fought back from a Damien Delaney header to lead 2-1 before the sending off swung the game and helped Alan Pardew’s side level the scores.

One of the Hammers goalscorers was Manuel Lanzini, as he impressed again.

As illustrated by the table provided by Opta, the Argentine was heavily involved throughout.

In total he posted 93 touches, the most of any West Ham player, with only two of those proving unsuccessful.

He was a constant danger to the opposition defence, as he managed to bag himself a goal as well as get three shots on target.

Creatively he was also on form as well, posting five key passes and 63 accurate passes while enjoying a pass success of 93%.

His dribbling was also impressive as he managed six won contests, double the amount of star man Dimitri Payet.

Another impressive display from Lanzini then, who have turned out to be another of Slaven Bilic’s clever signings this season.
