West Ham United lost 2-0 at Manchester City last night.
West Ham United's poor form continued on Wednesday night, as they were beaten 2-0 away at Manchester City without really putting up much of a fight.
The Hammers headed up to the Etihad Stadium last night to take on Pep Guardiola's side, much later than expected having seen the original game postponed earlier this month.
West Ham had won just one in the last six under David Moyes, and fell behind in the first half as Rodri scored from Kevin De Bruyne's cross.
De Bruyne added a second after the break, meaning West Ham have won just three times in the last 20 Premier League games – and Moyes' approach is being questioned.
The Scot left the likes of Manuel Lanzini, Felipe Anderson and Sebastien Haller on the bench and only introduced Jarrod Bowen for 15 minutes, in what felt like a meek surrender from the Hammers.
West Ham had just 22% of possession, three shots, no shots on target and one corner in a dour display, and Moyes' decision to leave Pablo Fornals out of his squad looks completely baffling.
Football.London claim that Fornals – who has started just twice in the league under Moyes – wasn't injured, and was simply left out of the matchday squad by Moyes.
His form before Moyes' appointment was superb – one goal and three assists in six games – and West Ham fans are now growing tired of the Spaniard being left out.
Fans called the situation ridiculous and laughable, with some 'gutted' for Fornals as he deserves so much better, whilst others are losing faith in Moyes because of his lack of belief in Fornals.
So Fornals had 2 goals and 3 assists in the 6/7 games before Moyes took charge, then he drops him for a shockingly out of form Lanzini then drops him out of the 18 for no reason? Disgusting management.— JW (@jed_w) February 19, 2020
I’m gutted for Fornals - had a slow start but was turning into one of our best players and certainly our form player - Moyes comes in and just bombs him out completely. Don’t understand it at all.— Tom Davis (@TommyIOD72) February 19, 2020
Fornals completely dropped then? Starting to lose any faith I had in Moyes.— Jamie (@Jamieonthisday) February 19, 2020
Crazy how Moyes doesn't rate fornals most creative player we have at the moment— Ryan 父harman (@harmann03) February 19, 2020
Fornals deserves better— Liam Casey (@LiamCaseyX) February 19, 2020

Someone please tell moyes Fornals is better than noble— ethan (follow limit) (@WhuEthan) February 19, 2020
I wasn’t against a Moyes’ return but his recent in game management, additional minutes for Masuaku and aversion to Fornals is testing my resolve...... a lot #whufc— A-Ron (@AaronPStephens) February 19, 2020
Moyes rates Masuaku and Lanzini but not Fornals laughable— Khaleem Azam (@AzamWHUFC) February 19, 2020
What has Fornals done to Moyes? Seriously.#WHUFC— Rickie Carroll (@RickieCarroll88) February 19, 2020
