Matthew Etherington: Elliot Lee deserves a chance next season

West Ham

Matthew Etherington hopes that Elliot Lee gets his chances at Premier League outfit West Ham United next season.

Matthew Etherington has stated on social networking site Twitter that West Ham United striker Elliot Lee should be given a chance next season.

The 20-year-old made just one appearance for the Hammers in the Premier League in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

It came against Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park on the final day of the campaign.

Lee came on for the final 14 minutes and gave a decent account of himself during the Magpies’ 2-0 defeat.

The youngster had a pass accuracy of 50%, and won one header, one dribble and one tackle.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham winger Etherington believes that Lee should be given more chances during the 2015-16 campaign.

Should Elliot Lee get more chances?

West Ham are entering a new era, and under new manager Slaven Bilic youngsters are likely to get chances.

Lee will face tough competition to break into the Hammers’ first team, and he needs to impress during pre-season and make most of the chances he will get.
