We’re all waiting for Said Benrahma’s skills to be demonstrated but he will have to go some to beat Arthur Masuaku!
The left-back has played in all eight of the Hammers’ Premier League games following the 2-0 loss to Newcastle on the opening day.
He has been central to the Irons’ fine form, helping them keep two successive clean sheets against Fulham and Sheffield United, and has even pulled out some flair.
Indeed, the club’s official Twitter account posted a video on Thursday showing a truly excellent piece of skill from the full-back against the Blades.

With the ball on the left wing, Masuaku spots the run of Pablo Fornals down the inside channel.
There’s a defender in his way but, to get the ball through to the Spaniard, Masuaku slips the ball through his legs, giving Fornals the chance to turn and potentially cross the ball.
It’s a fine bit of vision from Masuaku, and shows how integral he has become to the way David Moyes has been playing.
We’ll have to see whether Said can show him up once he gets a run in the team!
