Lanzini needs to grab his chance

Manu Lanzini may have a big point to prove should he get another chance to impress in tonight’s Carabao Cup clash against Hull City.

After his best display in some time against Charlton in the last round, it came as a  surprise to see him entirely unused in the match against Arsenal.

The manager instead decided to call in Arthur Masuaku before making one substitution down the right with Andriy Yarmolenko replacing the industrious Jarrod Bowen leaving the Argentinian to sweat it out on the bench.

However, the reality is that the 27-year old’s injury and form problems have meant he has failed to find the net for us since the 12th of May, 2019 when he scored in the game at Vicarage Road.

Those who managed to gain access to TV coverage of the Charlton game though, couldn’t help but be impressed by his performance and hopefully, he will get that opportunity to build on it tonight.

If we believe all we are told then we would accept that Moyes isn’t a fan of the player so Manu needs to be at his best tonight should the manager gives him the nod.

Felipe Anderson will need to show more if he’s to force his way into the reckoning for the Wolves game and the Hammers faithful will be hoping local lad Josh Cullen gets his chance.

  1. Hope he fields the same team as in the last round although maybe give Diop less game time and put a younger player in if we build up a lead, its upto them to prove they are good enough COYI !!!

  2. Would like to see Cullen given a go with Manu or Anderson to feed Haller. Yarmo and Snoddy seem ready to feature

  3. I seem to remember Moyes saying just after he came back that he had really liked Lanzini during his first spell – so I am not sure if it is fair to say that he doesn’t rate him

  4. To say that “from all we’ve been told” moyes isn’t a fan of Lanzini is absolute hogwash. One of those ITK journalistic phrases that really winds people up because it’s just too easy to roll of the tongue things that are based on hearsay and not actual facts. Lanzini was great for Moyes his first time around at the club before he got injured and when he came back the second time he persisted and stuck by Lanzini for a long time in the hope he would return to form. Unfortunately he didn’t and eventually Moyes had no choice but to drop him from the first team. So all in all moyes showed more faith in Lanzini than most and was loyal to him long after the fans started to call fir Lanzini to be removed from the team.

    • Listen, I was told it by a national newspaper journo on one of the broadsheets. Nothing rolls off my tongue and i don’t lie. So shut up! Oh and read what was actually written – that would be a start! Did you notice the first seven words (If we believe all we are told then we would accept that Moyes isn’t a fan of the player). Nor do I give a toss what winds all those people for whom you claim to speak on behalf of which in a word is also hogwash
