West Ham fans react on Twitter to Aaron Cresswell's performance v Newcastle

The former Ipswich full-back scored his first goal for the Hammers during their 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.

Aaron Cresswell can do no wrong at Upton Park right now.

Since joining West Ham United from Ipswich Town this summer, the left-back has impressed game after game. Defensively, Cresswell is developing into a superb player.

Going forward, meanwhile, the 24-year-old has been simply terrific so far this season. And Cresswell impressed boss Sam Allardyce by adding his first goal for West Ham to his growing list of achievements yesterday afternoon.

"We have to say it was a fantastic finish from Aaron Cresswell. It was fortuitous he got in that position. He's a full-back and carried on his run into the box. It was always going to be a 1-0," Allardyce told BBC Sport after the win.

"We got back on the winning trail going into December. Newcastle are an in-form side. It's a massive win for us."

The former Ipswich defender's second-half strike ended Newcastle United's run of six wins in a row in all competitions (five in the Premier League) and got West Ham back to winning ways. And, as you'd guess, Hammers fans were delighted with their full-back's contribution on Twitter after the game.

Whatever next for Cresswell? The sky seems to be the limit... perhaps a first West Ham hat-trick? And why not an England call-up?
