West Ham fans can’t understand why Ogbonna isn’t in the team

A number of West Ham United fans have claimed that central defender Angelo Ogbonna does not get the credit he deserves.

The 31-year-old captained the Hammers against Brighton & Hove Albion earlier this season, whilst he started and finished eight Premier League games between August 17 and October 19.

The centre-back has been an unused substitute for the club’s last three league fixtures, though, and they have conceded seven times in his absence.

Who should be partnering Issa Diop?

A fan account on Twitter pointed out that Ogbonna’s presence in the XI seems to have a big impact on the amount of goals that the team concede.

And many supporters have questioned why head coach Manuel Pellegrini has altered his stance on the central defender by putting him behind Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop in the pecking order at the London Stadium.

It will be very, very interesting to see whether the 13-time Italy international is in the XI for the clash with Tottenham Hotspur after the international break.
