The West Ham United fans have been on social media debating who should start through the middle in Saturday’s home game with Leicester City.
Javier Hernandez started the 2-1 defeat at Manchester United last weekend, with Marko Arnautovic left out altogether.
Hernandez struggled to make an impact against his former club, though, and Michail Antonio made a bigger impression off the bench late on.
Indeed, Antonio could have actually scored twice at Old Trafford – seeing his first effort hit the crossbar before being denied by a wonderful David de Gea save.
It is certainly an interesting topic of debate ahead of Saturday’s clash with Leicester, where the Hammers will be looking to avoid a fourth straight Premier League loss.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
There are those who feel that Antonio should be given the nod from the start, whilst others believe that Arnautovic could feature despite his troubles.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
Striker position is a huge issue for us at the moment. Arnie looks half the player he used to be.
Chicharito always plays well when he comes off the bench https://t.co/wOSW6vfuBI

Would start Holland on the wing with Antonio up top

Think Arnie has looked back to his best of late. The team met him down at Everton and he cause CFC problems.

Thort Arnie looked more like his old self 2nd half at Chelsea so I’d start him instead of Chicha!

Arnie looked good against Chelsea just lacks confidence needs a goal and he’ll be back to his old self
