West Ham United fans have criticised Felipe Anderson after his comments on their official website.

Optimism around the London Stadium had been built over pre-season, with the arrivals of Sebastian Haller and Pablo Fornals encouraging West Ham supporters.

However, many of the Hammers’ flaws were exposed by Manchester City on opening day.

 

City won 5-0 against Manuel Pellegrini’s men, with Anderson struggling to make any impact in the contest.

The Brazilian winger tried to suggest afterwards that West Ham should have played better.

"We have the quality to do much more, but we will keep on working and I’m sure things will be better soon,” he said.

But West Ham supporters were in no mood to listen to the comments, and criticised the £40 million signing (BBC Sport).

There are high hopes of Anderson at West Ham this season, as he showed flashes of quality last term.

Anderson should now be fully adjusted to English football, and the hope is that he will be the key creator in West Ham’s attacking line-up.

The Hammers are next in action against Brighton & Hove Albion, where they will be looking to make up for their opening day disappointment.
