West Ham United striker Sebastien Haller has been finding the going tough of late.
The French striker – who arrived in the summer from Eintracht Frankfurt for a club-record fee of £45 million (BBC Sport) – has seen the goals dry up after getting four in his first eight league appearances.
Haller hasn’t netted since the home defeat to Crystal Palace on October 5.
Some fans are growing slightly concerned over the drought, but a golden opportunity may await for the 25-year-old to get his season back on track.
That’s because next up for West Ham is Arsenal, who have struggled badly at the back this year.
TBR’s view – Haller can get joy against Luiz
Arsenal defence has been nothing short of woeful so far in 2019/20.
Headed by £8 million summer signing David Luiz (Sky Sports), the Gunners’ backline has shipped 23 league goals in 15 games so far, with a further 10 being conceded in Carabao Cup and Europa League games.
From a total of 22 games played. the north Londoners have been able to keep just five clean sheets.
Haller has to back himself to heap more misery on Arsenal, especially since the striker has already been an annoyance for Luiz earlier this year when Eintracht played Chelsea in last season’s Europa League.
Physical Haller has the potential to bully the South American and his colleagues, and it’s a big chance to end the drought.
