Will Pellegrini Risk Playing Anderson Against AFC Wimbledon?

Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini whilst desperately wanting a morale boosting win may well want to 'protect' certain players, namely one Felipe Anderson, during tonight's 'old fashioned' blood and thunder Elk Cup tie away to AFC Wimbledon. There are plenty of first team players who can't wait to start a match in West Ham's colours for the first time this season, left back Aaron Cresswell is yet to start a match and this fixture might be just right for him, however there is the possibility that Pellegrini may wish to try out certain 'fringe' players such as Sead Hakšabanović, Nathan Holland and new striking sensation Xande Silva.

Hammers just cannot afford to have 'some big lump' kicking bits out of Anderson so early in his West Ham career, his performance at the Emirates last weekend even earned praise from Jamie 'never has a good word to say about West Ham' Redknapp! "West Ham may have lost at Arsenal but Anderson was electric," said Redknapp. "Playing through the middle he ran 7.3 miles, more than any team-mate, made Marko Arnautovic's goal and set up another two chances. With such a creative spark in their side, West Ham have to be more clinical," he added.

Tonight could be the night when the team can be more clinical, but The Dons will see this as their cup final, apparently there has been a rush to sponsor match day shin pads and head bandages! - Ed
