West Ham United manager David Moyes has made two changes to the side that was beaten 4-1 by Manchester City at the London Stadium last weekend for the crucial trip to West Ham United on Saturday, and Irons fans have been quick to react.

Arthur Masuaku and Joao Mario come into the XI in place of Patrice Evra – Moyes was slated on Twitter for praising the Frenchman this week – and Edimilson Fernandes respectively, with Adrian keeping his place between the sticks as Joe Hart misses out through injury having been ineligible against his parent club previously.
The east London outfit, who have Pedro Obiang back on the substitutes’ bench after three months out with a knee injury, looked to be cruising to safety after they beat Southampton and drew with Chelsea at the end of March and into April, but they have since taken just one point from a possible nine to leave them just two points above the relegation zone.
West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Moyes’ selection, and while one said “#MoyesOut”, another simply said “depression”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Why does Moyes not realise we need to actually win a game to stay up… So negative with 1 up top.
