A number of West Ham United fans have taken to Twitter to praise Nathan Holland for yet another impressive goalscoring display in the Hammers Under-23s 4-0 win over Stoke City U23s in Monday's Premier League 2 second division clash.
The Potters youngsters were in impressive form going into the game - unbeaten in Premier League 2 Division 2 since August - but West Ham were quick out of the racing blocks as they surged into a two-goal lead after just 11 minutes through a Joe Powell screamer and a powerful Holland effort.
Stoke's experienced side sought to get back into the game but a young Hammers back line did superbly to restrict them before piling further misery on the Staffordshire side out through clinical finishes by Holland and Anthony Scully.
Here is what some Hammers fans said on social media regarding Holland's latest heroics:

He's exactly like Anderson...... Except he takes people on, runs around, cares a bit, and can finish.— Simon Brewer (@SimonBrewer20) 21 October 2019
Holland scoring again while anderson is out of form! this is the perfect time to show Anderson hes replaceable & to show the young lads that working hard in training & games like today will be rewarded. Even if Anderson comes on at half time it'll mean the world to holland & us— Chris (@ChrisConnor93) 21 October 2019
Nathan Holland > Felipe Anderson and it's not even a joke, PELLEGRINI HAS TO PLAY HIM AGAINST SHEFFIELD UTD https://t.co/0hGafjUjHc— Sofian⚒ #EqualGame (@Nobes_SZN) 21 October 2019
There is no way on this planet Anderson deserves to keep his place, drop all of the front 3 behind Haller and play Holland, Wilshere and Yarmolenko https://t.co/do8985ilH7— connor (@_ConnorWHUFC) 21 October 2019
Having maintained their three-point advantage at the top of the Premier League 2 second division table, West Ham U23s continue their campaign away at Norwich on Friday evening.
