West Ham fans urge Pellegrini to select Hernandez

West Ham United will look to bounce back from their opening-weekend defeat to Liverpool when they host Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Hammers suffered a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last time out, but will fancy their chances of bouncing back at home to the Cherries this weekend.

Marko Arnautovic was handed the starting position at the tip of the West Ham attack against the Reds, meaning that Javier Hernandez was on the bench.

Hernandez was strongly linked with a move away from West Ham towards the end of last season, but has stayed at the club following talks with new boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The 5ft 9in Mexican scored eight Premier League goals last term despite his lack of starts, and now the West Ham fans have demanded that he is named in the starting XI this weekend.

A number of West Ham supporters have called for the likes of Mark Noble to be dropped following the Liverpool match, and the inclusion of Hernandez against Bournemouth would certainly be a popular decision.
