West Ham have had a tough start to the season as they’ve lost to Arsenal, Liverpool and Bournemouth so far this season.
Against such a good Liverpool side, it was unlikely that West Ham would be able to get anything out of the game. In reality, it was against Bournemouth that has really stood out as the major slip up for the Hammers so far.
With a new manager and so many new players, it was always going to take time for the team to get going and in all likelihood, we won’t see the best of the side until we’re a couple of months into the season.
One player that has stood out so far for the Hammers has been £35 million summer signing, Felipe Anderson. Ahead of West Ham’s game against Wolves, Manuel Pellegrini praised the attacker, although he also admitted he must make one change to his game.
Alongside Marko Arnautovic, Anderson has been superb so far this summer. His ability to pick up the ball and drive from deep has been something West Ham have been missing and it’s also helped Arnautovic’s game too.
Pellegrini praised the Brazilian but also said that with so many fast players in the league, he has to run less with the ball. It’s Anderson’s one great talent but Pellegrini is right. With so many quick players in the league, it’s what Anderson does off the ball and his decision making in the final third is going to be key.
