Arnautovic’s performance came as a huge bonus to manager and club, after the Swiss star has struggled since his move to the London Stadium from Stoke.
The controversial midfielder had until the weekend failed to make good on his £25 million transfer fee, leading to speculation he could leave the club as soon as January, however more performances that like that he showed at the weekend, and he will soon find himself becoming a fan favourite in East London.
The Claret and Blue army are thrilled Arnautovic is finally doing the business for their club …
Arnautovic is better than Mbappe

Moyes is really getting the best out of Arnautovic, shows a bit of discipline and fitness makes a big difference
Superb today, Moyes got it spot on, defence were brilliant, thought Reid was immense!
Arnautovic (my MOTM) looked like a £25m player & Masuaku, again, looked brilliant!!

So buzzing for Arnautovic. Can see the effort he’s put in last few weeks.

Masuaku brilliant, Antonio and Arnautovic also looking dangerous. Fantastic first half performance for the second week in a row.
