If West Ham United want to ensure that they stay away from the relegation zone then they need to have strength in depth.
Manuel Pellegrini bolstered the club with nine new signings in the summer, which included the captures of defenders Issa Diop and Fabian Balbuena.
Both have put in positive displays at the back, but neither are strong passers of the ball and there is a lack of options if injuries are suffered.
Perhaps when the January transfer window opens, the Hammers should consider making a move for out-of-favour Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen.
The 22-year-old displayed his talent in various appearances under Antonio Conte last season, but under new boss Maurizio Sarri he has featured only three times, all of which were cup competitions.
A permanent deal would be unlikely, but we asked you whether a loan deal would suit all parties.
Judging by the results, plenty of West Ham fans believe that Christensen could be an asset for the second half of the season.
