Supporters have already noticed in recent times that the three-assist man is nothing like the player he used to be and the trip to the King Power Stadium has done very little to improve opinions, adding insult to injury.
In 90 minutes, the 26-year-old had a pass success rate of just 77%, completed only one dribble and no key passes, failing to have any attempts at goal and achieving a WhoScored match rating of a miserly 6.09 out of ten playing just off Sebastien Haller.
Rightly, supporters really went for him during and after the match with comments claiming he no longer knows how to play the game, he should be sold and he should never wear Claret & Blue again, flying around.
You can see for yourself, below…
Convinced Manuel Lanzini no longer knows how to play football.

Moyes should just hook Lanzini straight off at half time and tell him to not come back. He doesn’t want play for this club, he couldn’t care less. Half hearted jogging, given the ball away almost every time he’s had it. Looks like a weak little boy. Had enough of it.

Hope Lanzini never wears claret and blue again.

Lanzini is so overrated it’s unreal. Hasn’t played well since Payet made him look good.
Honestly I would happily flog the entire squad except for:
Everyone else is dead wood.

Lanzini should never wear a West Ham shirt again

Players need to take some responsibility, they showed no fight, desire or passion. Lanzini needs to be dropped or sold. We are such a slow team, no pace. We play at walking pace, need some young blood in that team.

Lanzini is in it just for the money now mate same as payet Carroll play the youngins at least they’d be proud to wear the strip ⚒

Exactly we can’t create anything atm.
Lanzini looks finished Snodgrass you can’t rely on him consistently.
Payet can create chances all day long.

We are going down. We will be bottom 3 very soon.
Diop v poor wesk tackles
Ogbonna too slow
Masuaka was ok shoikd have stayed on
Snodgrass was knackered after 20 mins
Noble poor slow knackered
Lanzini awful performance getting worse

Lanzini is a waste of space, just jogs around offers nothing attacking or defensive
