Chicharito v Arnie – and the winner is…..

West Ham fans would sooner Javier Hernandez left the club were the choice to be between him and Marko Arnautovic.

Both strikers have had plenty of criticism this season over form and in Hernandez’s case on pitch behaviour.

There are of course those who would sooner they both left the club in the summer.

But even though Arnautovic’s winter hopes of moving to China and the ill will that went with it have left a sour taste in the mouths of the fans, the majority would keep him over the Mexican in the latest ClaretandHugh poll.

Given the circumstances surrounding the pair we posed the question: “Given a choice between the two which striker would you keep if you could only keep one?”

A total of 845 voted to keep Arnie giving him a 58.16 per cent of the vote whilst Chicharito picked up 608 votes which gave him 41.84 per cent share of the vote.

  1. I’d keep Chicharito sell on Arnie if we can. Chicarito isn’t a well rounded CF which we need but he is good & a 4231 suits him. But depends if he wants to stay
    Arnie seems to want a move & don’t think Pellegrini trust him know Nor wanted a new deal.
    But Hugill should be first out not his fault but odd buy & don’t see how we will get £10.
    Funny him & Chic would cost the same???
    Chicharitos has as many goals as Arnie this season only 2 less then him with 20 less starts.
    And Chic tho tiny can actually head the ball has scored a few headers each season. Arnie never has scored a PL headed goal. If he could score headers like even Chic he would be dealt in box.
