West Ham United drew 1-1 with Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.
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.
Have said the same about Hernandez all season. Doesn’t matter if you rate him or not, he was a senior striker who chipped in with goals off the bench. Ajeti it seems is a mile away from doing the same.— Vince (@cenzo147) October 27, 2019
Ajeti is truly shocking…. he’s a replacement for Lucas Perez and Hernandez not great— Darren Smith (@giantdaz) October 26, 2019
What is the point in Ajeti haha did he even touch the ball?— brad (@Fifa_Fury) October 26, 2019
Ajeti stats please? Any touches? Pointless change.— Nick Lowery (@nick_lowery) October 26, 2019
Would much rather see Holland on the bench than the likes of Fornals and Ajeti, not like he could do much worse than them— David (@davidjacksxn) October 26, 2019
Fornals and Ajeti might as well leave in January, they have shown absolutely nothing in a West Ham shirt— David (@davidjacksxn) October 26, 2019
Ajeti hates scoring goals— Lewis West (@L8wis) October 26, 2019
