Plenty of West Ham fans have been calling for Sebastien Haller to start in the Premier League after the French striker scored twice in the 5-1 Carabao Cup win over Hull last night.
Goals at the end of each half took the 26-year-old’s tally for the season to four in as many games, yet all of those goals have come in the Carabao Cup, with the forward having to be content with two substitute appearances totalling 25 minutes in the league so far this term. Indeed, he got a mere two minutes off the bench against Arsenal on Saturday night. [via TransferMarkt]
Haller also netted a brace in the previous round of the cup against Charlton and will now hope to be named in the starting line-up for Sunday’s Premier League clash at home to Wolves.
Should Sebastien Haller be an automatic starter for West Ham?
The club record £45m acquisition from Eintracht Frankfurt scored seven goals in 32 league games in his first season with the Irons in 2019/20 and was a regular starter last term, but he has so far had to play second fiddle to Michail Antonio at centre-forward in the early weeks of the current league campaign.
These West Ham fans on Twitter have all called for him to play from the start in the Premier League after his latest cup double:
I reckon start him in the League then, just a thought…

Here's an idea. Why don't we start him in the league then? https://t.co/3YqALhGLkb

League 1 or not…
You okay him for more than 2 minutes and he scores.
There’s a shock. https://t.co/VMVn5CmtcE

Any danger we could actually play him in the league? You know, I’m a game that actually matters?
