West Ham fans disagree with Manuel Pellegrini blaming Haller for a lack of goals

Manuel Pellegrini has pointed some of the blame for West Ham’s lack of goals at the door of Sebastien Haller, and many fans believe he has picked on the wrong target.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of the match against Sheffield United, the Chilean said that Haller requires better movement in the box, which indicates that he believes the problem isn’t a lack of service.

That puts him at odds with the thinking of several fans, some of whom have become frustrated with the underwhelming performances of the Hammers’ creative players this season, and for good reason.

Pablo Fornals has failed to make an impact since his summer move with zero assists in 11 games, and whilst Felipe Anderson has provided four assists he has still fallen short of the standards he set last season – as highlighted in his anonymous display against Goodison Park last week.

That led to him being hauled off at half-time, but Manuel Lanzini stayed on, another player who has been the focus of fan dissatisfaction, with some accusations that he doesn’t get close enough to Haller on the pitch, supported by the fact he has just one assist in eight games this campaign.
