Sebastien Haller was recalled to the West Ham team on Wednesday night against Wolverhampton Wanderers – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter raged at the striker for his performance.
After winning away at Chelsea at the weekend, Manuel Pellegrini made just one forced change for the Premier League trip to Molineux.
The Hammers once again this season weren’t at their best and suffered a 2-0 defeat.
Leander Dendoncker and Patrick Cutrone scored a goal for Wolves in each half to help them climb to fifth in the table, while West Ham are down in 13th looking over their shoulder.
A selection of West Ham supporters on social media voiced their frustration with Haller following his reintroduction to the starting XI.
The French striker spearheaded the attack in the absence of Michail Antonio and once again showed he struggles to lead the line by himself.
He was unable to provide an outlet for the Hammers in the final third and some started concerning his overall work-rate.
The 25-year-old has four goals since his summer arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt, but he’s becoming brutally exposed in Pellegrini’s system right now and his latest display showed why he was dropped against Chelsea.
Here are some West Ham fans on Haller:
Already missing Antonio here. Haller is just sooooo average #WHUFC

Is Haller even playing. Absolute waste of £45m offers nothing up front. Antonio has done more is 1 and a half games than he has in last 10 #WHUFC

Haller’s movement is absolutely dreadful, we never look like doing anything when we hit them on the break
