Former Hammer Pedro Obiang has wished West Ham luck on social media telling his 60,000 followers on Twitter ‘And good luck today Hammers. I have good memories of this fixture’ Obiang was a member of the matchday squad that was the first to beat Spurs at their new stadium last year. He came on as a 77th-minute substitute for Robert Snodgrass,
Michail Antonio scored the only goal on the game on the 67th-minute leading to the historic win over Spurs.
A few months after that game Obiang joined Italian side Sassuolo for an undisclosed fee thought to be £6.25m.
The 27-year-old midfielder spent four years in east London, joining the club in summer 2015 from fellow Serie A team Sampdoria.
Obiang was part of the side which qualified for European football in 2016 and earned his first international caps for Equatorial Guinea during his time with the Hammers.
