Manuel Lanzini has recently found himself back in the West Ham side and the Argentine has been loving his football this season.
The 28-year-old has scored against Manchester City and Chelsea this season as he has helped the Hammers maintain their competitiveness across all competitions.
David Moyes’ side hosts Crystal Palace on Saturday where they hope to close the gap on fourth-placed Arsenal, who face a tough lunchtime kick-off against league leaders City.
“it’s like one big family here,” Lanzini said on West Ham’s website, “It’s a really good group and that’s important. We’ve got good people and a really good understanding between one another.”
Argentine international Lanzini has found consistent minutes hard to come by so far this season with the Hammers attack on red hot form.
Recently though, he has managed to secure a more permanent spot in Moyes’ starting 11 with Spanish attacking midfielder Pablo Fornals out of action with an injury.
But one man’s downfall offers another the chance to rise and Lanzini has done exactly that since his return to the Irons team and Fornals could find it tough to recover his place when he is back to full fitness.
Lanzini’s career revival at the London Stadium is a pleasing one for all West Ham fans who have always enjoyed and liked the 28-year-old both on and off the pitch.
Having a personality that is almost impossible to hate has no doubt helped him overcome tough times in the past 12 months to rekindle the spark that he had previously misplaced.
The Hammers’ game against Palace is an important one to come through unscathed with a midweek test against Norwich to come ahead of a busy January schedule.
In other West Ham news, this Irons target could be set for a move elsewhere amid hesitation from the club.
