Hallerween! D-Day For Striker

OK big man, a message from west ham fans, you were furious with 'bug eye', 'the corpse' or whatever you want to call your manager David Moyes, when he replaced Michail Antonio with Yarmolenko instead of you against Manchester City. Another in a long line of snubs, or just how the cookie crumbles? Having banged in goals for fun in the Elk Cup hopes were high that there would be a chance of 'significant' minutes on the pitch in the Barclays Premier League, unfortunately due to an injury picked up in training it was not to be.

Instead of being the 'sulk', Sebastien Haller should now become the 'hulk', having seen his place as the main man firmly taken away from him by the incredible performances of Michail Antonio, the frenchman now has the opportunity to show why the club paid a record £45 Million for him from Eintrecht Frankfurt. It is unlikey that Moyes will start Haller against Liverpool on Halloween, but if he does he will expect the striker to run his heart out for the cause, an element of his game that has been woefully lacking.

If ever Haller was to be given the opportunity for a run in the team, then now is the moment, if he puts a shift in he might well benefit from the passes pinged in by Bowen, Fornals, Creswell and Coufal to name a few! Hallers stands at nearly six foot five, it's about time he stopped playing at five foot six! - Ed

I would not be surprised if Moyes moves Bowen as a centre forward and brings in either Yarmalenko or Benrahma to take his spot. Haller maybe brought on early in the second half if things go sour for the Hammers with this shape in effect. Bowen is the fastest Hammer on the pitch and has proven to score when he has moved into more central positions.

Lol!!!! Very good Nev,hallerween,he is rather frightening to watch,bowen at centre forward is a good idea,he has pace,would cause a defence problems,down the centre instead of the sides,well thought,lets hope moyes thinks of it as an option.

Bowen played centrally at Hull. It's a no brainer for me. Keep le merde on the bench to get le splinters up his chuff box.

Will he show a few tricks? Will he serve up a treat? Or will he socially distance from his team mates & produce a horror show

Two things ,1, Moyes is a traditionalist he will start Haller ,2, it wouldn't surprise me if he will be under orders to start him considering how much the Driscolls paid for him

My guess is Haller will start and be replaced or joined by Benrahma if we go behind in the second half. Liverpool are weak in defence though and the six foot 5 inch striker should get plenty of opportunities to score goals. If Haller takes them we could well take something out of this game. I see yet another draw but it could be a very rare win if we take our chances.
