Pellegrini must turn to Hernandez and Antonio

Pellegrini must turn to Hernandez and Antonio

West Ham United have won their last four Premier League fixtures having come on leaps and bounds under Manuel Pellegrini, with a European spot well within their sights.

The Hammers will feel confident that they can actually make something of the current campaign, after suffering a horrific start to proceedings.

Indeed, West Ham United will welcome Watford to the London Stadium in their next Premier League fixture. The Hornets have dropped off the pace in recent times as they continue to disappoint, but a win against Manuel Pellegrini’s men would definitely get their season back on track.

Therefore, with a tough test coming up, Pellegrini can bring West Ham’s European dream to life if this PAIR get the nod…

MICHAIL ANTONIO

Michail Antonio has been left frustrated for large parts of this season, but things appear to be taking a turn for the better as he managed to find the back of the net in a rare start last time out at Craven Cottage. The Englishman managed to get on the end of a flick-on from Javier Hernandez to coolly slot home.

Therefore, having witnessed the brilliant partnership between the Mexican and Antonio last time out, Pellegrini should put his trust in the impressive pair once again.

JAVIER HERNANDEZ

Javier Hernandez really has turned a corner at the London Stadium. The forward was heading for an inevitable January transfer window exit a couple of months back, but he’s now regularly contributing in the final third.

Indeed, the 30-year-old managed to provide the assist for Antonio’s goal at Craven Cottage. And, with Watford currently struggling in defensive areas, his pace and dribbling ability could cause them all sorts of problems.
