Predicted West Ham starting XI

Manuel Pellegrini made a surprise five changes against Sheffield United last weekend but the Hammers could only manage a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium.

It would be surprising if Robert Snodgrass hasn’t earned a start for this afternoon after his man of the match performance last week,

Fabian Balbuena has probably done enough to keep Angelo Ogbonna out of the starting line up and while Pablo Zabaleta had a good game I am expecting Ryan Fredericks to return in his place.  The left-back position is a tricker decision for the manager but I expect him to rotate again to give Arthur Masuaku the nod ahead of Aaron Cresswell.

I expect Manuel Lanzini to remain on the bench again as he did last weekend.

That would mean two changes from last weekend with Fredericks and Masuaku replacing Cresswell and Zabala

Predicted West Ham Starting XI  (4-2-3-1): Roberto; Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Noble; Yarmolenko, Snodgrass, Anderson; Haller

  1. He has picked the same team as last week.Not sure he is learning his lessons.Poor Haller alone again up top.Another loss or a draw and a couple of dodgy substitutions and the Hammers fans will be calling for his head on the block.

  2. 1 down already. .lol they never learn…cracking start once again from our boys ….embarrassing

  3. Absolutely pathetic… Zero support for Haller, Pellegrini hasn’t a clue!! For heavens sake sack him, sell the club, bring in Mourinho and let’s become the club that we know we can be… Why do WE ALWAYS have to endure this disgrace???
    I’m SICK OF IT!!
