West Ham United's Ashley Fletcher has a shot at goal

West Ham United fans have called for Ashley Fletcher to be brought back into their first-team, after a video of him performing an outrageous piece of skill in training was posted by their club’s official Twitter account.

Fletcher left James Collins bewildered with a clever turn in a training drill yesterday.

And the stunning trick has left West Ham fans wondering why Fletcher has fallen so badly out of favour.

Fletcher actually forced his way into West Ham’s first-team at the start of the campaign, but appears to have fallen right down the pecking order.

The former Barnsley forward made 13 appearances over the early part of the season in the Premier League, but has not been seen since January.

And, with West Ham’s forward problems continuing, some supporters at the London Stadium have called on Slaven Bilic to hand Fletcher another chance before the season finishes.

West Ham are next in action at the weekend, when they take on Ronald Koeman’s in-form Everton side.
