West Ham’s consecutive defeats have led some fans to discuss the problems which have led to a drop in performances, and some believe the midfield is holding them back from success.

Players such as Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini were criticised after the loss to Everton but some think it is a wider issue, with one highlighting an inability to press as a factor which means they will never challenge the top clubs.

Should Declan Rice be sold for £70m?

One fan is concerned by the lack of recruitment in the transfer window and believes it was something which urgently needed addressing, with other reactions discussing the current issues that exist.
