Honest Arthur played through the fatigue

Well done Arthir Masuaku!

He’s been away since early December and returned against Wolves looking as though it had only been a couple of weeks or so.

And all the while he was on the left side of midfield, that area of the pitch looked so much better and perhaps made some realise the help Aaron has needed down that side.

Arthur provided a great assist for the second goal after fabulous work by Jesse near the corner flag and in general terms was a menace all the while he was on the pitch.

He’s been on a long injury journey and to coin the old cliche it was like getting a new signing on the pitch – he did really well.

And speaking to West Ham TV after the game he made it crystal clear how delighted he is to be back in a team and how much – if selected – he is looking forward to the game against Leicester City.

He said : “It was an unbelievable game and I’m happy to be able to be back out there and help the team as much as I can.

“I knew it was going to be a tough game – coming here to play against Wolverhampton is always hard – but we’ve done the job, we’ve got three points and we’re fourth in the league. It’s very good for us and for the fans as well.

“It was an intense match. I’m going to be honest, I was tired quickly, but I knew I had to get through that and now I’m looking forward to the next game. I’m very excited to be back and a part of this.

“We’ll work this week and hopefully get the three points against Leicester on Sunday.”

  1. Arthur is a defensive liability, and always has been since he joined us. We looked far more secure defensively on that flank against Wolves when he was replaced by Johnson. My heart sinks whenever I see the name Masuaku on our team sheet. Poor in defence and mostly profligate in attack with numerous misplaced passes and losing possession in dangerous areas. He could be among the most talented ‘free-stylers’ in the Premier League with his enviable close control, but he isn’t a good enough all round footballer for West Ham United. I couldn’t believe it when we renewed his contract!!
