West Ham fans upset Pablo Fornals was overlooked in Fulham draw
West Ham were held to a goalless draw away to Fulham on Saturday in the Premier League – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were left upset that Pablo Fornals was overlooked during the contest.
The Hammers could only manage a 0-0 draw at Craven Cottage, which means they stay fifth in the table and missed the opportunity to move into the top four.
It was a contest where David Moyes’ men had to grind out a point with a solid defensive performance and they lacked a spark going forward, but have just one defeat in nine league games.
The match was also overshadowed by a controversial moment in stoppage time, as Tomas Soucek was shown a straight red card for an alleged elbow on Aleksandar Mitrovic.
A selection of West Ham supporters on social media were left confused as to why their star Fornals was left on the bench in the game.
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder has featured regularly in most matches this season with 22 appearances across all competitions, but Moyes opted against using him as one of his substitutes.
There is plenty of competition in the squad now, especially after the loan signing of Jesse Lingard, but perhaps Fornals will return next week against Manchester United n the FA Cup.
Here are some Fornals discussing Fornals:

Why would not bring Fornals on? I don’t understand that at all.

Any reason Fornals hasn’t got a run out? Seems odd.
