West Ham suffered a blow to their hopes of clinching a Champions League spot following a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace in the London derby.

On-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike started for the Hammers but was unable to add to his goal tally.

We took a look at social media to find out what West Ham fans made of his performance.


There was quite a lot of excitement – or sarcasm – regarding Slaven Bilic’s decision to start with Emenike.

And another one.

It was no wonder there was quite a lot of hype revolving around the decision to start with Emenike after he pulled this off in training leading up to the game.

The Nigerian international’s actual performance did however, draw mixed reviews.

Some called for Emenike to be returned to Fenerbahce.

But not everybody had harsh things to say about his display on the day.

Others thought Emenike should not have been brought off for Andy Carroll.


And we saved the best until last.
