West Ham fans back Chicharito to keep starting spot against Palace

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has a big decision to make regarding strikers ahead of his side’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace this weekend.

Marko Arnautovic is nearly back to full fitness after sustaining a foot injury against Wolves, with Javier Hernandez playing up front in his absence against Liverpool.

The Mexico international has scored four goals this season and enjoyed a sterling display against the Reds, as the Irons held the title-chasers to a creditable 1-1 draw.

Arnautovic, though, has been in fine form this season too, scoring seven goals and providing two assists in the Premier League.

However, a flirtation with a move to the Chinese Super League in the January transfer window has seen the Austrian’s reputation diminish among the eyes of some Irons fans.

And they have now debated whether or not he should be restored to the starting XI when the Hammers face Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, with many backing the idea of keeping the Mexican in the team.
