How did West Ham lose 4-0 against Oxford United in the League Cup on Wednesday?
Yes, it was a rotated squad, but there was still more than enough talent in the Hammers’ side to beat the League One team, yet they were absolutely battered by the Us. Manuel Pellegrini will have been very disappointed with the display, just like the fans.
There was the need for a response against Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League. A 2-2 draw is not exactly what they would have wanted, but it was enough to see them move up to third in the table.
There were some good performances, and some not so good ones. Pablo Fornals struggled against the Cherries, and was taken off with 24 minutes left. Since joining the Irons, he has scored just one goal and has failed to register an assist in nine matches.
The London Stadium faithful are clearly expecting more from him, and they were unhappy with his display at the Vitality Stadium. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Haller was good the big disappointment was again Fornals too slow, too weak and doesn’t get close enough to Haller

There were a few lacklustre displays today and attacking wise I think we really struggled to create despite scoring two goals. Fornals and Noble were poor in possession and it was difficult to get much going through the middle.

Proud of my team just hope fabianski is back ASAP, Fornals needs to step up though
