Robert Snodgrass was only making his second Premier League start of the season when West Ham faced Sheffield United on Saturday, as per WhoScored.
He took his opportunity to impress, as he scored the Hammers’ only goal of the game, when he received Andriy Yarmolenko’s pass, ran forward with the ball and slotted it past Dean Henderson.
In addition to this, he made 2 key passes, 1 dribble, 1 tackle and completed 88% of the passes he attempted throughout the match.
This performance led to the 32-year-old being praised by the club’s official Twitter account:

Snodgrass was man of the match for me he is a proper grafter bizarre he was removed just as a corner was being taken a bit disrespectful to him but well played Snoddy.

So pleased for Snoddy, he and Michail are so important for our squad. They won’t always play, but when they get into the team God it’s hard for anyone to shift them
