West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to laud Marko Arnautovic after the Austrian continued his incredible run of form for the Irons by playing a starring role in their emphatic win away at Huddersfield.

The Hammers went into the game at the John Smith's Stadium looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their goalless draw away at Shrewsbury in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.

And it appeared that it may be another tight affair, with Mark Noble's opener for the visitors being cancelled out by Joe Lolley five minutes before the break.

However, West Ham found several further gears in the second-half and left David Wagner's side in shock - with Arnautovic at the heart of the mauling after the break.

The forward - who had scored three in his last three appearances for the Hammers - put David Moyes' men back in front within a few seconds of the second-half starting, before he turned provider for Manuel Lanzini.

He set up both of Lanzini's goals as West Ham won 4-1 and moved themselves to within one point of the top-half of the table, five points clear of the bottom three.

Arnautovic's display received a huge amount of praise from the fans on social media, with many suggesting that he has the potential to establish himself as one of their best players in recent times if he continues his current run.

Here is the best of the reaction...
