As we head into the international break, West Ham are still yet to register any points in the league.
While losses to Liverpool and Arsenal shouldn’t be too heavily criticised, the Hammers didn’t put in a good display against Wolves or Bournemouth. After a summer where the east-London club broke their transfer record twice and spent £100 million overall and brought in nine new players, it was always going to take time for the players to settle into a new style of play.
According to the Daily Star, the West Ham board have made it clear that they have no intention of sacking Pellegrini following the manager’s tough start to the league campaign.
Although West Ham haven’t been great so far this season, Felipe Anderson and Ryan Fredericks have shown that the West Ham owners have given Pellegrini some suitable backing this season.
Amid their four league losses both players have shown that they could be excellent buys by the club.
Having loaned out Sam Byram in the summer, West Ham brought in Fredericks on a free transfer and the 25-year-old full-back has fitted in seamlessly into the team. Defensively, the back four is still jelling together but going forward Fredericks has already shown that he is a capable outlet.
Former Lazio man, Anderson has been even better. The club’s record signing had an inconsistent time in Italy but in tandem with Marko Aranutovic, he has probably been the club’s best player.
Yes West ham are struggling at the moment but signing these two has shown that the board are backing Pellegrini at least.
