All eyes on Arthur Masuaku

All eyes will be on the West Ham team sheet at 11.30 am on Saturday morning to see if Arthur Masuaku has been included in the match day squad.  The 26-year-old has been missing from Manuel Pellegrini’s match day squad for the last three Premier League games which has caused many supporters to ask what has happened to the left back.

Club insiders have insisted there has been no fall out between the player and the manager and have played down the notion of show down talks reported last week.

Masuaku’s DR Congo continued their qualifying campaign for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations with a 2-2 draw in The Gambia on Monday evening with the defender starting the game to earn his seventh international cap proving his absence is not anything to do with an injury or match fitness.

The left back’s absence from the squad remains a mystery which will further deepen if he left out once again.

  1. Really hope Pelle comes up with some new ideas in terms of team formation including having Masuaku as an attacking wing-back. Even three at the back. Can’t see it though.

    • Pelligrini is too stubborn and stuck in his ways to change . He will persist right up until we are very deep in trouble ( as if we’re not right now ) and relegation looming . It is time to change the formula . But unfortunately Pelligrini will only do it under extreme pressure from the fans .
      His system is just not working and it’s high time he realized it . He bought players that would play his system one supposes , but all he has done is divide the dressing room and left everybody confused . Win or lose to Spurs he has to go . One up top is never going to work . As regards To the mumbling of employing Benitez ,,,, I am totally in favour . He would imo be a perfect fit . I know people will disagree but , what has Pelligrini delivered .?

  2. And this thought will make us all happy …. why ???? – The 2 current left backs in the 1st team have proven to be extremely vulnerable in defence …. both blowing hot and cold. Now what bad has Cresswell done that the rest of the 1st team players did not in their last game? What we need is a batch of tough defenders asap, together with proper goalkeepers … as good back-up for Fab.
