West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has named his starting line-up for the crucial match against Swansea City at the London Stadium on Saturday, and Irons fans aren’t impressed.

After losing five straight top flight matches, the Hammers are just five points clear of the 18th-placed Swans and know they can’t afford to slip up against Paul Clement’s men.
With Andy Carroll not deemed to be fit enough to start after picking up a slight knock in the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates in midweek, Andre Ayew was given the nod in attack, while the likes of Jose Fonte and Robert Snodgrass were included despite coming under scrutiny from some supporters.
Those fans were quick to have their say on the team news for the visit of the Welsh outfit, and they were less than optimistic that their side would get the victory that they require.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the Hammers’ starting XI…
@westhamtransfer How do you start Snodgrass?!?

@WestHamUtd Why Snodgrass? Why is Ayew up front? Where's Fernandes? What does Randolph have to do to get dropped?

@WestHamUtd Only we can be stupid enough to have no natural striker in our starting 11 yet have 3 on the bench ????????????
