West Ham United manager David Moyes has made six changes to the team that drew 1-1 with Bournemouth at the London Stadium last weekend for their FA Cup fourth round tie against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on Saturday, and Irons fans have been quick to have their say on the selection.

Joe Hart, Reece Burke, Sam Byram, Josh Cullen, Javier Hernandez and Toni Martinez come into the starting line-up in place of Adrian, James Collins, Cheikhou Kouyate, Mark Noble, Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini, with the latter two set to miss a number of weeks because of hamstring injuries.
Meanwhile, new signing Joao Mario has been named on the substitutes’ bench alongside younger players like Domingos Quina and Sead Haksabanovic.
West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Moyes’ selection, and while one said “they’re going to turn us over”, another laughed at playing “6 defenders v Wigan”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
