Here’s the team – give us your thoughts

So more changes as the Irons go in pursuit of their first points but I don’t think too many will be complaining.

The defence with Zaba back, Masuaku on the left with Rice, Noble and Obiang supplying some midfield solidity looks a decent bet against Everton

It’s particularly good to see Rice back to provide some energy and passing ability in the middle of the park whilst Noble, although not the quickest of course, does provide some much needed leadership.

Carlos Sanchez has paid the price of a critical mistake against Wolves whilst Anderson in the 10 role looks a good bet playing off Arnie of course.

So with less than an hour to the whistle – how’s it gonna go guys?

I’m looking at a 2-1 foe the Hammers – leave your thoughts below.

  1. I’m looking at the team putting in a shift , closing down ,pressing & working hard. I’m hearing on some media outlets not all the team are behind Pelligrini’s tactics. If that is true it’s a poor show from the lads and not on . Maybe if they all played the way he wants they will probably find it works. Not having that from the players , if they don’t want to play his way ditch them. Better off having the players that believe in the tactics as they will play more like a team . That’s better than having only half the team believing and the other half not . Don’t care who they are should play the way the manager tells them to . Now for today team looks good so stick together same team . COYI ⚒

  2. Looking much more solid. Hopefully at least a point today. Good to see Rice back in the team.

  3. Weird team. looks unbalanced. Hopefully I’m proved very wrong.

  4. I would like to have seen Anderson in the 10 role and Antonio in from the start but apart from that Pelle picked a good team. Great to see both Fredericks and Wilshere not in the team, picked a very solid back 4 and great to see Rice and Obiang in the middle.

  5. However much you dislike them,Fredericks and Wilshere are West Ham players. It achieves nothing to keep bashing away at them even when they don’t play. How come you missed out your favourite…Mark Noble? We won 3-1 yet you’re still criticizing Pelles’ selections. Just no pleasing some people. Yarmolenko played in Ants position today. Wrong decision? Don’t think so mate.Also couldn’t play Anderson as a 10 while playing 3 defensive mids, which was crucial to our win.
