Arnautovic, who joined West Ham from Stoke City in the summer transfer window, started the Premier League game at the London Stadium and played for 69 minutes.
The 28-year-old winger has come under criticism for failing to play well for the Hammers since his summer move, but against Leicester, the Austria international was arguably the London club’s best player.
West Ham manager David Moyes was pleased with the performance of Arnautovic, who can also operate as a forward, but the former Everton and Manchester United manager said that it is what the ex-FC Twenter star is supposed to do.
Moyes said on Sky Sports Premier League on Friday night (10:10pm, November 24, 2017) about Arnautovic during the post-match coverage of the Premier League game between West Ham and Leicester: “Let’s not start praising him for doing too much.
“This is what you do. If you are a footballer and you play in this role, this is what you do. I don’t want to come on this show and start applauding him because this is a given for me.”
Moyes has also suggested that he wants West Ham striker Andy Carroll to change his game a little bit.
“I think Andy should try and sort of change his game a little bit more,” said Moyes on Sky Sports Premier League on Friday night (10:13pm, November 24, 2017) during the post-match coverage of the Premier League game between West Ham and Leicester. “I have talked to him about it.”
West Ham are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with just 10 points from 13 matches.
