Jack Wilshere scored his first goal for West Ham as the Hammers progressed through to the next round of the Carabao Cup, beating Newport County 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Pablo Fornals scored the other goal for the Hammers – tapping in from Felipe Anderson’s low cross – to secure the victory against the League Two side.

Manuel Pellegrini handed a debut to summer signing Albian Ajeti in this match. Although he did well with his industry, many West Ham fans are not impressed with his overall performance.

The 22-year-old looked promising at times and showed plenty of running and energy. However, he didn’t get enough clear-cut chances to score.

In the second half, he was presented with a couple of opportunities to score – both close-range headers – but he couldn’t find the target.

Overall, it was a promising performance, but at the same time frustrating as well. Here are some of the reactions from the Hammers fans on Twitter:

West Ham enjoyed 73% of possession and attempted 14 shots of which they managed to keep six on target, according to BBC Sport.
