West Ham held Arsenal to a 3-3 draw at Upton Park to keep their chances of Champions League football alive.

On-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike came on at half-time for the Hammers with the score tied at 2-2.

We took a look at how his performance went down on Twitter.


It is fair to say Emenike has a few doubters – some more harsh than others.

Emenike even got likened to a being a part-time footballer.

More banter.


Emenike was criticised mainly for being perceived to have not had an influential role in the game although West Ham took the lead when he was on the field.

Emenike was even blamed for the Hammers not winning the game.

There were however, some fans rather pleased with his performance and one tweeter claimed he was the game changer in the second half.

More Emenike backers.

And yet more praise for Emenike. To be fair West Ham did take the lead after his introduction to the game and he did put on a hard working display.
