West Ham: Fans question Manuel Pellegrini’s decision to rest Michail Antonio

West Ham United reverted back to losing ways on Wednesday as they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat against Wolves at Molineux (BBC Sport).

It was a poor display from Manuel Pellegrini’s side, with goals from Leander Dendoncker and Patrick Cutrone sealing three points for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

The Hammers manager made a bold decision in his starting line-up, opting to leave out forward Michail Antonio.

The ex-Reading man has been in good form of late, coming from the bench to score against Tottenham and starting in their 1-0 win against Chelsea (Transfermarkt).

Most assumed that the 29-year-old was left out due to a minor injury after reports in the media (Football Insider), but Pellegrini confirmed after the game that he had actually just chosen to rest the frontman (@Sam_InkersoleTM).

After seeing that Antonio could have actually been involved, plenty of West Ham fans couldn’t understand the Chilean’s decision to leave him out, with many suggesting that he should have at least been on the bench.
