West Ham United played host to Everton at London Stadium on Saturday evening in what was a frustrating and embarrassing evening for the home side.
A win could have seen the club end the weekend in seventh spot in the table, with Wolverhampton Wanderers losing at Turf Moor against Burnley and Watford having been beaten by Manchester United.
West Ham would have gone into the game in high spirits, having beaten Huddersfield Town last time out, and with the chance to jump inside the top seven.
However, the Hammers hopes failed to materialise, as they suffered a 2-0 defeat against Everton, and they were second best for the entire game.
The win for Everton saw them climb into the top half of the Premier League table, and they now sit just a point behind seventh-placed Wolves, with the Hammers now in 11th place.
Lucas Perez was handed a chance to make a big impression as the Hammers looked to get the better of the visitors, but the Spaniard failed to prove his worth.
Perez has made 11 Premier League appearances for West Ham this season and has only netted two goals.
The 30-year-old’s performance today left many West Ham fans confused as to why he’s labelled a top notch striker, and if he is sold this summer, there will not be too many fans upset.

Lucas Perez is perhaps the most pointless player to exist

Lucas Perez is an absolute liability

Lucas Perez is the example of why some arsenal fans ( 🎥 wankers) know nothing about the game. They were slating Big Weng for not playing him….. state of his play today shows Wenger was right to dump him

Absolutely howling @ the lads that wanted us to play Lucas Perez more

You expect to lose when Lucas Perez is in your starting line-up. Pellegrini got it completely wrong.

How is Lucas Perez allowed to start a professional football match for our team???
– Antonio has been decent recently, bench
– Hernandez scores 2 in his last game, bench
– Arnautovic wants to leave the club to fulfill his dreams of winning titles in China…..starts!

Worst home performance in a long time. Lucas Perez has to go down as one of the worst players to pull on the shirt in the last decade. Awful signing #whufc

Lucas Perez is so pony, can’t believe people thought he was a player at Arsenal.

Lucas Perez has to be the worst player in the premier league straight up.
