West Ham United: Fans react to Andriy Yarmolenko training return

West Ham United: Fans react to Andriy Yarmolenko training return - West Ham News

Andriy Yarmolenko has been pictured back in training for West Ham, as evidenced by images on the club’s official website whufc.com and shared on Twitter by @WHUFC_News.

Yarmolenko has missed the past five Premier League matches after sustaining a knee ligament injury in the goalless draw with Fulham early in February, but it now looks as if he will be able to provide David Moyes with another attacking option during the run-in as the Hammers, currently fifth, look to secure European football.

The 31-year-old Ukrainian netted five Premier League goals last season but has yet to score in the competition this term. In fact, four of his seven goal involvements in all competitions came in a 5-1 Carabao Cup rout of Hull City back in September.

He has averaged only 0.5 shots, 0.4 key passes and 0.4 dribbles per game this season (via WhoScored) and has been statistically the second-worst performer still in Moyes’ squad in 2020/21. He has also attracted scorn from numerous Irons fans over some of his performances in recent months.

These supporters weren’t overly enthused at learning of Yarmolenko’s return to first team training:

“Can we not put David Martin on the wing instead? He’ll put in more effort and won’t lose the ball every 30seconds by trying stupid flicks…”

In other news, some Irons fans are alarmed by a statistic surrounding this long-serving player.
