“Thank you Slaven”, “Lukaku hattrick incoming” – West Ham fans’ mixed reaction to team news

The West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been calling for Adrian to return in goal all week so they will be delighted to see that Slaven Bilic has selected him in the starting XI today.

West Ham prepare to take on Everton in a 3pm kick off in the Premier League as they seek one more win to completely ease any relegation concerns.

The Hammers are nine clear of Swansea but another victory should get them breathing easy again.

However, Bilic had a seriously depleted squad to choose from.

Robert Snodgrass, Sofiane Feghouli, Andy Carroll, Pedro Obiang, Michail Antonio and Mark Noble are among the key names completely missing from the match day squad.

Slaven Bilic has opted to deploy a 3-4-3 formation by the looks of things with Adrian replacing the hapless Darren Randolph in goal, following his costly clangers against Sunderland.

James Collins, the returning Winston Reid and Jose Fonte make up the back three.

Then Cheikhou Kouyate and Arthur Masuaku are expected to operate as wing backs with Havard Nordtveit and Edimilson Fernandes in the middle.

Manuel Lanzini will be the main creator in the attacking trio with Andre Ayew and Jonathan Calleri.

Here are how West Ham fans responded to this on Twitter.
