Cresswell or Johnson? CandH poll result

Aaron Cresswell has suffered another blow – this time at the hands of the West Ham fans!

The left back – having fallen out of favour with the manager – is now well down the pecking order with ClaretandHugh followers who would prefer the prospect of an out of position U23 Ben Johnson playing on the left side against Manchester United.

With Arthur Masuaku suspended following his sending off at Aston Villa on Monday evening, Cresswell would appear to be the most likely replacement.

But Pellegrini took a long look at Johnson in pre-season and played him regularly on the left side which saw the youngster perform admirably.

Now in the latest CandH poll – currently in excess of 1,000 – Johnson would be preferred at left back, despite it not being his natural position, for Sunday’s game.

  1. Johnson is young and is out to i,press, he is a great prospectr going into the future, that is my reasoning behind my vote

  2. I noticed that Johnson was not in the U23’s on Monday night – so did he travel with the first team squad to Villa – even tho he was not on the bench?

  3. I thought Zaba did very well when called upon at Villa. I’d be happy enough with him starting.
