According to @whufcbulletin on Twitter, West Ham United winger Marko Arnautovic is a late withdrawal from the team to face Swansea City at the London Stadium on Saturday through illness, and Irons fans are divided on the news.
The club-record summer signing has certainly had a mixed start to his Hammers career, seeing red in just his second Premier League appearance for the club, before returning and impressing in the win against Bolton Wanderers in the EFL Cup.
However, the former Stoke City man disappointed in the defeat to Tottenham last weekend, and he will now miss the match against the Swans because he is suffering from illness, with Javier Hernandez expected to replace him in the starting XI.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some it was a “shame”, others were happy as they believe he is “useless”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Its a shame Arnautovic is out as he wouldve had a field day vs Naughton. Its a chance for Ayew to stake a claim in the XI, hope he takes it!
