West Ham have had a hard start to their Premier League season and with their fixture list not letting up anytime soon, Manuel Pellegrini remains in search of his first points as Hammers boss.
After bagging nine new players over the summer on their way to spending over £100 million, many predicted that West Ham would be a team to look out for this season, even contending for European places.
That belief from many may have already been dashed after their poor start to the season but under the guidance of a top manager like Manuel Pellegrini, they’re in good company to still succeed this season.
As well as the first team, the Hammers are renowned for supplying good youth players, of which one of those is having a blast on-loan to Oxford. Marcus Browne left West Ham this summer to gain experience and regular football with the league one outfit, for which he has appeared for three times already this season.
The 20-year-old has shown immense promise during the early stages of his career, particularly when he scored four goals in a single game for the Hammers U23’s last season.
Browne displayed all of his very best attributes to go on a glorious run with the U23’s last season but a move away to League One poses a new challenge for the 20-year-old. It’s all well and good impressing for the youth teams but when given the opportunity to show off your talent in a tough, physical English league, that should always take priority.
Playing as an attacking-midfielder, Browne is no stranger to bagging a goal or an assist, in fact that is his game.
With great pace, ball control and finishing ability for a young lad, his early form on-loan shows that despite the obvious difference in quality between the Premier League and League One, Browne could have the ability to one day be given a chance in the Hammers first team.
