as always depends which west ham bothers to turn up.
we have lazy players who although they are good enough don't produce regularly enough for us to achieve.
pelle looks tired and just here for his large cheque. do we really pay him more than Klopp gets ?

I expect a reaction today but who knows. what I do know is faiul to beat a poor Newcastle TEAM AND WE ARE IN TROUBLE

Roberto
fredericks diop Balbuena cresswell
noble rice Snodgrass
yarmolenko haller Anderson

subs martin masuaka ogbonna fornals lanzini ajeti Holland

2-0 win with haller and Anderson back in the goals. Holland to come on for last 15 mins for yarmolenko

Anderson to stay on for 90 mins !
There is no evidence that our players are lazy. The claims of laziness and lacking fitness are lazy themselves, we have other problems we can identify.

4 games ago Pellegrini was walking on air, now after 2 defeats in 4 he's 'tired' and 'looking for a pay cheque.'

What an absolutely ludicrous claim.

We should be beating them, but I'm more concerned with the performance, if we play well and they squeak out a draw that's better than us playing poorly and nicking a win. A good performance puts us in better stead for the tougher games coming up.

Newcastle will have watched our last couple of games and so will know exactly how to approach this - which is why we need to change things up today.

Up and at em from the off, and pray for the first goal to settle the nerves and open them up.

I’m not holding out too much hope though.

0-0

Carroll misses a sitter in the last few moments in part recompense for the 23 million he earned in wages here.

Unlike many people I thought the performance against sheff u was reasonable (haller apart). We created spells of pressure (10 corners) which we had failed to do against Palace. Just take our chances please!

Unchanged 11. What have Ogbonna and Fredericks done to deserve to be dropped? :eh:

Pelle is sticking his neck out a bit with that team. No changes at all to an 11 which looks shot of confidence.

I’m worried.

Zabaleta’s lack of pace deeply concerns me

I'm yet again feeling totally baffled by our manager's team selection. This team got shat on last time out and had no gut or fight, and seemed lost.

Lineups a bit disappointing, was hoping for a bit of variation in formation and tactics for this one.

Lets see how it goes eh....

Hopefully he’s expecting last weeks starters to up there game from the off and has had them on sharp pass and move drills all weak in training. Quicker getting the ball forward today please.
I would have started fredricks over Zabaleta though.

I was all geared up for one, but 110 is pretty inaccessible from where I am. An inauspicious start...
