West Ham held Premier League leaders Leicester City to a 2-2 draw at the King Power stadium.

On-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike was given a spot in the starting line-up by Slaven Bilic but he was not given an easy ride by the Hammers faithful.

We can’t tell if this tweet was serious or sarcastic but at least some fans were looking forward to seeing Emenike start.


It went down hill from there as far as tweets regarding Emenike were concerned.

Considering Emenike was dispossessed twice and lost the ball four times the following tweeter does make a strong points.

The general feeling seems to be that the fans do not want the Nigerian international at the club next season.

If the fans were in charge Emenike’s loan stay would probably be ended tomorrow.

There were however, some fans that pointed out Emenike may not be entirely to blame as he was left isolated upfront.

Emenike seems to be struggling to adapt to Premier League football but he has only been at the club since January.
