West Ham fans are divided on whether Jordan Hugill should get first start vs Burnley

West Ham United play host to Burnley at the London Stadium on Saturday, and Irons fans are at odds on Twitter as to whether January signing Jordan Hugill should be handed his first Premier League start for the club against the Clarets.

The east London outfit bought the 25-year-old striker in a £10m deal from Championship club Preston North End on deadline day, but despite the absence of Andy Carroll and the departures of Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew, he has only played 12 minutes of top flight football with Javier Hernandez or Marko Arnautovic preferred up top.

The 6ft centre-forward, who failed to come off of the substitutes’ bench in the 4-1 defeat to Swansea last weekend much to the bemusement of the fans, might be better ited to coming up against the Burnley defence however given he is known for being strong in the air, but Hammers supporters are divided on whether he should get the nod against Sean Dyche’s men or not.

They have been quick to have their say on Hugill’s chances of starting via social media, and while one said ‘time to give Hugill a start’, another disagreed and said playing him from the start would be “too risky”.
