Revealed: 76% of fans think Jonjo Shelvey would walk into West Ham’s starting XI

Ahead of the final quarter of the Premier League season and the battle to avoid the drop at the bottom of the table, we asked West Ham fans in our poll to tell us whether they thought Newcastle midfield regular Jonjo Shelvey would be able to hold down a place in their starting XI.

Shelvey is valued at a cool £10m at the moment, according to Transfermarkt, and he has been one of the first names on Rafael Benitez’s team sheet since his arrival from Swansea two years ago.

Would Shelvey get into West Ham’s midfield, though?

Mark Noble is a club stalwart with a long career at England’s top level, but Kouyate has struggled this season with a series of niggling injuries to his knee and hamstring.

Hammers fans in our poll, for the most part, believed that Shelvey would walk into their best XI – with 76% of them in our poll saying that he would be in the starting lineup.

Here is the full result from our poll on Wednesday:
