Selhurst Park has become the birthplace of new West Ham terrace chants

Not only has Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park become a happy hunting ground for West Ham United, it has also become a birthplace of new chants.

The Hammers won on their travels to their London rivals for the third consecutive season when Manuel Lanzini's strike secured a 1-0 victory at the weekend.

It was only West Ham's second win of the season and a vital one too as it lifted Slaven Bilic's side out of the relegation zone and eased the pressure on him and his team after their worst start to a Premier League season.

But an interesting aside - for Hammers fans at least - is the fact that for a second season running, and almost to the day when the club beat the Eagles 3-1 on their own patch last season, Selhurst Park was the birthplace of a new terrace chant.

After years without a genuine hero figure West Ham United fans have been somewhat spoilt for choice the last season or so.

And that has been reflected in the stands with Hammers fans honouring the sensational Dimitri Payet with the song to the tune of Billy Ray Cyrus' Achy Breaky Heart.

That song was born at Selhurst Park last season and this time around it was Lanzini's turn.

To the tune of Rufus & Chaka Khan's classic Ain't Nobody Hammers fans belted out their new ditty long into the night 'Ain't nobody, like Lanzini, makes me happy, plays the West Ham way'.

He certainly does too and his slick goal, a neat first time finish from the returning Aaron Cresswell's expert low cross, has given the club renewed hope and belief both on the pitch and in the stands.

The chant has been around on social media for a while but never has it been sung en masse and with such fervour as it was at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
