West Ham United's recent unconvincing run of form continued on Saturday afternoon, as they drew 1-1 at home to Sheffield United.

The Hammers came into the game without a win in their last three games, and fans were hoping to take advantage of a home game against a newly-promoted side to get back on track – but the Blades have proven a tough nut to crack this season.

West Ham did take the lead as Andriy Yarmolenko's well-weighted pass found Robert Snodgrass, and he finished beyond Dean Henderson to open the scoring.

 

Manuel Pellegrini's side couldn't find the crucial second goal though, and were made to pay as Lys Mousset came off the bench to snatch a point at the London Stadium.

It's now just one win in six for West Ham, and problems are emerging for boss Pellegrini, especially in the final third where Sebastien Haller appears to be isolated.

The Frenchman needs more support, but Pellegrini has limited Albian Ajeti to minimal cameos, bringing on the Swiss attacker with less than 10 minutes to play on Saturday.

Ajeti, 22, was signed from Basel in August but has yet to make any sort of impact, and fans weren't impressed with what they saw on Saturday.

Some believe that Ajeti is miles away from replacing Lucas Perez or even Javier Hernandez, branding him 'truly shocking' having failed to even see him touch the ball as a substitute.

Some added that bringing on Ajeti was pointless, and he may as well leave the club in January because he simply isn't offering anything in a West Ham shirt right now.
