Ahead of West Ham United’s Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday afternoon, former footballer and now pundit Stan Collymore had a go at Marko Arnautovic.
Indeed, in his column for The Mirror, Collymore claimed that West Ham should not be relying on Arnautovic as he is not going to help them in the tough times.
Of course, Arnautovic went on to star against Everton as he scored one and set up another to help the Hammers record a 3-1 win at Goodison Park.
It was not the best of timing from Collymore, and the West Ham fans cannot believe what the 47-year-old had written when it was pointed out.
Arnautovic is always going to have his critics, but there is no getting away from the fact that he has scored three Premier League goals for a struggling team this season.
In total, Arnautovic has 14 Premier League goals in 36 appearances since arriving at the London Stadium, which is a very impressive record all things considered.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham fans can be seen below:
The same guy whose had 16 goal contributions in 16 games and has the most goals and assists in 2018 only behind Salah I swear?
