Three West Ham players who deserve more chances

Mauro Zarate

West Ham United trio Mauro Zarate, Andy Carroll and Michail Antonio should get more playing time as the season progresses.

Mauro Zarate

Mauro Zarate has struggled with injuries this season, but he is now fit and raring to go.

The Argentina forward is a very talented player, and West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic should try to make the most of his quality.

The former Lazio star did not make a huge impact in the Premier League last season, but he should be given another chance to show what he is capable of.

A mobile player who can shoot well, Zarate could prove to be valuable in the Hammers’ quest to finish in the top eight of the Premier League this season.

Andy Carroll

Andy Carroll has struggled for fitness for most of his West Ham career so far, but if he remains fit, then he should be allowed playing time.

The England international striker is not exactly a great player, but he has his own specialities and can be an asset for the Hammers.

The former Newcastle United and Liverpool striker is now fully fit, and for him to score goals and help the team, Bilic needs to show him more confidence.

Michail Antonio

Michail Antonio was one of the best players in the Championship last season, but the former Nottingham Forest winger is struggling to even get into the West Ham team at the moment.

The former Sheffield Wednesday star has played just 31 minutes in the Premier League for the Hammers, failing to score a single goal or create a single chance.

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the 25-year-old is still adapting to the English top flight, but it is important for the player that he gets to play competitive matches for the London outfit.

Antonio’s pace and strength could be big assets for West Ham.
