West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini should consider unleashing Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko in a strike partnership together in future games.
Frenchman Haller has looked like a solid buy so far after joining the club for £45 million from Eintracht Frankfurt (BBC Sport), and his relationship with Yarmolenko seems strong.
The Ukrainian forward is enjoying a purple patch at the moment having scored three goals in seven games in the Premier League.
Yarmolenko’s good form continued into the international break, and he took his goal against Portugal during the 2-1 win like a proper striker.
He has been demonstrating excellent finishing inside the box in 2019/20, and perhaps Pellegrini should think about moving him infield to support Haller.
TBR’s view – Haller likes a partner
Yarmolenko moving inside could be something that really benefits both himself and Haller.
Last term the star worked in a partnership with Luka Jovic and the pair wreaked havoc on Bundesliga defences.
He’s done well as a lone striker so far, but Haller appears to relish having someone mobile operating around him, and £115,000-a-week star Yarmolenko (Spotrac) could be a tremendous partner.
That would then vacate the right-wing position for someone like Pablo Fornals to come in and kick-start his Hammers career.
