West Ham fans on Twitter have been looking ahead to their next fixture against Tottenham on October 20th and questioning whether or not Robert Snodgrass should play. The Scottish winger has shown professionalism, passion and class when needed and after impressing in the Carabao Cup, some fans would give the ex-Hull City man a Premier League start against Spurs.

Robert Snodgrass suffered a rocky start to his West Ham career but under Manuel Pellegrini, things seem to be getting back on track. The 31-year-old signed for the club under the management of Slaven Bilic back in January 2017 and failed to have the same impact at West Ham in the second half of the season as he had at Hull City in the first half of it. Then, during summer 2017 the midfielder was loaned out to Ason Villa for the season.
Towards the end of his loan spell at Villa Park, a lot of fans believed he’d be set to make his stay at Aston Villa a permanent one. That was until Pellegrini was appointed and the Chilean saw Snodgrass as someone who he could rely upon. So far, the fans have only seen the Scotsman used as a bit-part player but seeing him bag two goals and three assists in two Carabao Cup matches, Pellegrini could be forced to give the 31-year-old his first full 90 minutes in the Premier League against Tottenham in nine days time.

As long as it means Antonio doesn’t get anywhere near that team then yes.

He’s earned a starting place, he puts so much effort in when he plays.

Yes. He deserves it. Maybe instead of Obiang who had a shocker at Brighton

Why not? I like him as a sub but rotation isn’t a bad thing plus it makes players try harder

Absolutely, brilliant attitude and not short of skill either!

The Irons are keen to see Snodgrass get a start against Tottenham and will hope he can come up with a goal or two if he is selected.
