West Ham United play host to bottom-of-the-table Championship side Bolton Wanderers in the third round of the Carabao Cup at the London Stadium on Tuesday night, but even though Slaven Bilic looks set to make changes to his starting line-up Irons fans are frustrated that Toni Martinez doesn’t appear to be getting the chance to impress for the first team.
Despite being one of the Hammers’ stand-out performers during pre-season, the 20-year-old striker is yet to be given an opportunity under Bilic this term and he looks set to miss out against the Trotters too having started for the Under-23s in their 2-0 defeat against Liverpool on Monday night.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on Martinez potentially missing out against Bolton via social media, and while many questioned what he has to do to get a chance in the first team, others are obviously convinced he will leave and wished him ‘good luck at his next club’.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
