Well, there is just a bit of pressure on West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian to perform against Manchester City this weekend then.
Adrian will face the Premier League champions due to the fact that Joe Hart is ineligible to take on his parent club, and the Spaniard will be looking to produce a strong performance so that he can finish the season as West Ham’s number one.
Facing City is not exactly the easiest of tasks, and it does appear that head coach David Moyes has placed an unnecessary amount of pressure on Adrian with his comments on Friday afternoon.
It would be a huge surprise if West Ham dropped out of the Premier League from their current position, but they face a huge task at home to City on Sunday afternoon.
The Hammers will then take on Leicester City, Manchester United and Everton in their final three league fixtures of the 2017-18 campaign, and defeat in all four would certainly leave them a bit vulnerable.
The West Ham fans were furious with Moyes’ comments on Friday afternoon, and the Scot appears to be losing the supporters pretty quickly.

Unfair (and unprofessional) to single Adrian out and place so much pressure on him.

This is ridiculous!! Adrian should never have been dropped for Hart in the last games and now Moyes wants to put this pressure on him! Adrian will leave us at this rate and who could blame him!!
