Whilst our attacking men were getting all the praise on Saturday, a resolute and impressive performance was being put in at the back and Jeremy Ngakia was a huge part of that.
Having seen two players in the form of Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku look good going forward but shabby in defence at left-back over the last couple of years, it’s a relief that we’ve got a young right-back who can do both.
After the match, he spoke to the club about the immense support of the Claret & Blue Army, his desire for more game time and the importance of keeping up his hard work – impressive comments too.
Fellow fans were overjoyed with our new homegrown hero when reacting to his words…

Ngakia sounds grounded and hungry and, at 19 years of age, could be a long term solution to West Ham’s must publicised RB problems. Ngakia has been superb in his first three appearances for the club – especially considering he has played against Liverpool in two of those.

Great player with bags of potential. Once again, Chelsea’s loss is our gain as with Dec.

The new Glen Johnson. Hopefully he sticks around a bit longer.

@Jeremy_jn7 exactly the attitude the fans crave. First 3 performances should be just the start for you, keep it up!
