West Ham fans react negatively to Javier Hernandez injury return

Javier Hernandez is set to be available again for West Ham at the weekend – and some of the club’s supporters have responded negatively to the update.

West Ham host newly-promoted Norwich City on Saturday in the Premier League and will be hoping for three points ahead of the international break.

Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini confirmed in his pre-match press conference (official website) that Hernandez has has recovered from a “small knee injury”.

The 31-year-old was absent from the squad in the league victory over Watford last weekend, as well as missing the mid-week win against Newport County in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

But the centre-forward is back in contention against Norwich and he did feature in the opening two league games of the season.

The Mexico international was given a late cameo in the opening day defeat to Manchester City, but started against Brighton and scored a vital goal in a 1-1 draw.

A selection of West Ham supporters on social media have oddly reacted negatively to Hernandez’s return and clearly don’t rate him.

Sebastien Haller looks like being the main option in Pellegrini’s team this campaign, but having someone like Hernandez up your sleeve is surely a positive.
