West Ham fans urge David Moyes not to risk star man against Manchester United

West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to urge David Moyes to think carefully about playing Michail Antonio against Manchester United in the FA Cup.

The Hammers will face the Red Devils at Old Trafford tomorrow night looking to progress to the quarter-final.

Antonio has scored five goals and claimed three assists during 2020/21 and is very much West Ham’s main talisman.

A failure to sign a striker during January means the 30-year-old is very much the main talisman in Moyes’ squad.

Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax during the transfer window and some supporters have criticised the decision not to sign a replacement.

Now, with a tough-looking trip to Manchester United on the horizon, Moyes is facing a tough decision.

Having beaten Stockport and Doncaster in the competition so far, West Ham will want to continue their run and reach the latter stages.

The Hammers would probably have a better chance of success if the £70,000-a-week Antonio does play but they have to think of the rest of the campaign.

It would seem as though plenty of West Ham fans agree.

Ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Manchester, we looked at what supporters were saying regarding Antonio’s possible involvement.
