West Ham fans don’t need telling that if their club’s form doesn’t improve, they’ll be in for a tough relegation battle at the end of the season. Manuel Pellegrini is under pressure from the board and his team isn’t scoring enough, with just six goals in their last six games.
Felipe Anderson scored once this season, despite netting nine goals and making four assists last season in the league. WhoScored gave him a 7.23/10 rating for last season’s league campaign, but this year he’s dropped to 7.12/10, and he’s been dispossessed the second-most times per game on average in the whole squad – 1.8 times.
Nathan Holland, 21, has scored nine goals and made six assists for the U23 squad this season. His Premier League 2 performances have clearly caught the eye of some fans on Twitter.
When West Ham Central posted “Holland or Anderson at the moment?”, many fans said they’d drop Anderson to give the youngster a chance.

Holland on form no doubt

Holland, Anderson was awful on Saturday and he thrives off confidence which he is seriously lacking right now.

West Ham fans, who would rather be the starting 11, Nathan Holland or Felipe Anderson?
