Twitter Reacts: Newcastle United 2-4 West Ham United
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...
We’re an electric counter-attacking team.— Joe (@JoeBarnbrook) August 15, 2021
Class second-half performance today, a joy to watch at times. Benrahma is going to have a quality season and Rice ran the show after half-time. Michail Antonio is nothing short of a West Ham legend. Unplayable on his day. pic.twitter.com/uciNUl5Bt0
Michail Antonio's match-sealing fourth goal was a significant one for his career...
Antonio is up there with West Ham United legends! ⚒ BEAST 💪 pic.twitter.com/exQUT2R7DJ— Aslan ⚒ (@Aslan_WHU) August 15, 2021
Saïd Benrahma scored a goal, made an assist and had a huge all-round impact
