Losing Marko Arnautovic would push West Ham towards relegation

Thanks to the form of Marko Arnautovic and Felipe Anderson West Ham have managed to keep their heads above water during what was a terrible fixture list.

It had looked as though the Hammers had got through the worst of it a couple of weeks ago but following losses to West Ham and Brighton, the Hammers are now back under pressure to win.

The Hammers face a tough game against Leicester City tomorrow and will be hoping that Arnautovic will snatch them three points. However, in what could be devastating news for the club, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been told to go all out for the West Ham man in January.

The Breakdown

With Alvaro Morata up front, Chelsea have struggled to provide any threat going forward, aside from Eden Hazard. The Spaniard has looked terrible this year and has so far only scored two goals in the league.

In contrast, West Ham’s star man has scored four goals this season and on his day looks like one of the best strikers in the league. At 29, he’s still in his prime and could be the man to provide Chelsea with a striker capable of scoring 20 or more goals a season.

Although Anderson has performed well for the Hammers, losing Arnautovic would be a massive blow and would surely push West Ham towards the relegation places. Despite having Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez, there’s no one to replace him up front.
