Twitter Reacts: Newcastle United 2-4 West Ham United

Tomas Soucek celebrates at the final whistle


It was a memorable way to start the 2021/22 season for West Ham United at Newcastle United on Sunday.

Twice the Hammers found themselves behind in the first half, but a display of scintillating attacking football meant the Magpies were overwhelmed after the break, as David Moyes' men swept to a 4-2 victory.

Here's some of the best reaction from Twitter to the season-opening victory...

How good was it to see fans enjoying an away day again?

It wasn't just our fans in the North East who enjoyed it. The Claret & Blue Army from far and wide were in the mood to celebrate.

This summary seemed just about right...

Michail Antonio's match-sealing fourth goal was a significant one for his career...

Saïd Benrahma scored a goal, made an assist and had a huge all-round impact

The Algerian's goal, scored with his head, also continued this Hammers trend.

These former Hammers enjoyed their afternoon too...

And we'll leave the final word to Moyes' squad.
