Both Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek could be dropped this weekend against Wolves.
The pair remain vital parts of the club’s squad and there really is hope that they can each turn their form around, but the start to this season has been dismal.
Soucek did score against Spurs, but his form has been terrible amid the Hammers’ run of form that has seen them slip into the relegation zone.
Bowen, by comparison, has not scored or assisted a goal in the league thus far but he was called up by England boss Gareth Southgate to play Italy and Germany. He was left out of both games and did not play a single minute.
There are options in the squad, now, though, so that the pair can potentially be rested.
Maxwel Cornet plays on the right wing for the Ivory Coast, and he has yet to start for the club in the Premier League, while Flynn Downes is waiting for his first league start.
Boss David Moyes has options, and dropping the pair would send a significant message.
