The Hammers have still top make up their minds who is to become the main penalty taker following Mark Noble’s retirement.
With the FA Cup[ ahead it may well become an incredibly important of the team’s advance but the manager would like to find one or two he can rely on in Premier League matches.
Speaking to reporters he said: “You have to accept Mark Noble was brilliant at it but over the past year or so we have had to chop and change when Mark didn’t start.
Even the other night we were still in debate. We have missed a couple of key penalty kicks
this season. missed one at Anfield and then Notts Forest.
We were still debating who would take the penalty kicks. Sometimes it goes back to who has got the confidence or who feels good about it. Lucas felt good about it.
It was a really good penalty kick, but we have had Jarrod who missed at Anfield, Declan who missed at Forest, Said and Lanzini have been pretty good when they have been on it. That’s why we have probably had so many different takers.
