Manuel Pellegrini’s decision-making has cost West Ham so far this season

West Ham United finally appear to be finding their feet under Manuel Pellegrini after a disastrous start to proceedings in the Premier League. 

The Hammers would have had their sights set on a European push after spending big during the summer transfer window, but things just haven’t gone to plan so far this season. Although, things have certainly improved in recent times, but they’re a long way off reaching their potential under the South American.

Worryingly, Manuel Pellegrini has struggled for answers at times and has made a number of debatable managerial decisions this season, which has cost them dearly.

With that being said, here’s a look at TWO of Pellegrini’s biggest blunders…

Poor team selection

Manuel Pellegrini has looked to chop and change his side on a number of occasions, which has caused for a lack of consistency from what is a new-look West Ham United side.

The South American took an age to find a settled side that could grind out positive results in the current campaign, with the likes of Carlos Sanchez, Javier Hernandez and Robert Snodgrass all offering nothing.

Indeed, the 65-year-old’s eagerness to embed some of his summer signings into his side certainly had its consequences.

Lack of preparation

The Hammers would be in a far better position than they currently find themselves in if Pellegrini had put the correct amount of preparation in place for his side.

Indeed, the West Ham boss appeared to be testing and trialling a few different combinations and players towards the start of the season, which you can’t afford to do against some of the better sides.

So, you begin to question what he had been working on during pre-season after the start his side made to the season as it took him five Premier League games to finally identify the correct formula.
