West Ham fans hoping for change of formation

West Ham United have been hit with the news that Andriy Yarmolenko will spend the next six months on the sidelines after undergoing Achilles surgery.

Yarmolenko picked up the injury in West Ham’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, and it is a big blow for the Hammers.

Head coach Manuel Pellegrini appears to have settled on a system in recent weeks, with Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson playing wide of Marko Arnautovic in the final third of the field.

However, the West Ham fans feel that Yarmolenko’s injury could force Pellegrini into a re-think, with a switch to a 4-3-1-2 potentially allowing Javier Hernandez, who has recovered from illness, to return to the starting XI.

Only time will tell, and we will have a better indication of Pellegrini’s plans when West Ham travel to Leicester City in the Premier League this weekend.

A number of the West Ham supporters are clear what they want to happen, however, and it includes Hernandez being handed a spot in the starting XI.
