West Ham winger Gokhan Tore provided his first assist in his first Premier League game for the Hammers in their 1-0 victory over Bournemouth becoming the first player to provide an assist in the Olympic stadium in the process.
We took a look at how West Ham fans reacted to Tore’s display on social media.
Tore was awarded the Man of the Match award by West Ham fans on Twitter for his impressive display.

Football journalist Philippe Auclair was pretty impressed with his display!
No surprise West Ham's (likely) winner should have had Gokhan Tore at the heart of it. Excellent throughout.

Gokhan Tore easily man of the match

Tore is still not 100 percent match fit after only returning from a knee injury last week but he has started to show glimpses of why he is Slaven Bilic’s golden boy.
Gokhan Tore was elite how are people still talking shit after today

What a player that Gokhan Tore is!

Tore was not given much attention in the post-match show on Sky Sports… in fact his name was not even mentioned.
We've got a player in Gokhan Tore I feel. Was as good as Antonio today, sure @Turkish_Futbol loved it!

And in case you are wondering his name translates to, The Code of the Skylord
It was not all praise. Tore seems to have a hardcore group of critics for some reason.
How is there actual football fans that think Gokhan Tore had a good game?
Absolute dump of a performance barring an assist

I honestly reckon Gokhan Tore would struggle to get a game for a Turkish outfit over Hackney Marshes on a Sunday afternoon! Useless! #WHUFC

Pretty much sums things up here.
