West Ham United fullback Aaron Cresswell was impressed by new teammate Gianluca Scamacca in defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Although an Erling Haaland brace secured City victory in east London, Cresswell praised the efforts of the new No7, who received a rallying ovation from the Hammers faithful when introduced shortly before the hour-mark.

“I thought he was real positive," Cresswell told whufc.com. “He looked really sharp when he came on. He won a few duels and brought the ball down and linked the play up. It's still early for him, but his performance was really positive."

He added, “The first five minutes we put them right on the back foot, but we couldn't keep that energy up. Once they got control of the game we found it really difficult.

“It's not easy on the best of days. The positives are we didn't turn over and give up. We tried to stick with it, but we came up against a better team and they outplayed us."
