West Ham Needs a Miracle (and Maybe a Cornet!) 


West Ham’s Europa League dream is hanging by a thread. They face a seemingly insurmountable task against a rampant Leverkusen side, trailing 2-0 on aggregate. Injuries and suspensions to key players only exacerbate the challenge.

Moyes’ attacking approach has to be a gamble. While necessary to overturn the deficit, it leaves them vulnerable to Leverkusen’s firepower. The spotlight shines brightly on Maxwel Cornet, a fringe player who could be handed a starting role. This match represents a golden opportunity for him to redeem himself and potentially salvage his West Ham career.

The predicted 4-3-3 formation, with Cornet on the wing, is an acknowledgement of the attacking intent required. However, the alternative 3-5-2 formation, deemed less suitable, highlights the tactical tightrope Moyes must walk.

Cornet’s performance carries immense weight. It could be his last chance to prove his worth to Moyes. The pressure is immense, and whether he gets the nod remains to be seen.

This is a do-or-die match for West Ham. A victory would be a monumental achievement, a testament to their fighting spirit. But defeat would mark a bitter end to their European campaign. The outcome hinges on a bold approach, a bit of luck, and perhaps a breakout performance from the underutilised Cornet.
