After the news emerged yesterday that West Ham’s star striker Marko Arnautović is an injury doubt for this weekend’s fixture against Chelsea, fans will be worried.
The Austrian has been West Ham’s most consistent performer so far this season, in what has been a rough start for Manuel Pellegrini’s men. In five appearances so far for The Hammers, the striker has already notched three goals and one assist.
With that in mind, we asked whether you thought Arnautović (valued at £22.5m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) is the club’s most important player. These were the results:
The results clearly show that Arnautović is highly regarded amongst West Ham fans, with an amazing 95% saying that he is their most important player.
The incumbent Hammer of the Year looks as though he may have a grip on the accolade for many years to come at the London Stadium.
West Ham fans will hope that his time on the sidelines is very short indeed.
