West Ham appear to be getting themselves back on track after a slow start to the season, but not every player in Slaven Bilic's squad has redeemed themselves along the way.

With that in mind, here is a look at five West Ham players who will be disappointed with their form this term...

Alvaro Arbeloa

With Alvaro Arbeloa reaching the twilight of his career, it is hardly a surprise that he has been struggling to make an impact following his return to the Premier League. Nevertheless, his performances have still been incredibly underwhelming. In the three league games he has played, the Hammers have conceded nine goals.

Havard Nordtveit

The 26-year-old is another summer signing yet to prove himself this season. His versatility means that he has the potential to be useful to Bilic, but his form has not given Irons fans much reason to think that he could establish himself in any one position.

Jonathan Calleri

West Ham had been crying out for a striker to make a big impact this term before Andy Carroll enjoyed a brilliant run. Jonathan Calleri appears to have missed his chance to move himself up the pecking order with just one goal to his name. He is yet to start in the league so perhaps he will make a much greater statement when he gets that chance.

Aaron Cresswell

Aaron Cresswell was arguably one of the Hammers' best players last season but has just not looked the same player this term. The way he married his defensive work with creativity going forward was crucial to the side previously, but he has not been able to get that balance right this season.

Mark Noble

While his effort could never be faulted, Mark Noble simply has not been as influential for the Irons since their move to the London Stadium. But given his passion for the club, it would surely be a massive mistake to write him off getting back to his best at some point in the near future.
