Marko Arnautovic

Floridsdorf, Austria
Squad Number: 7
Position: Striker
Born: 19th Apr 1989 (Floridsdorf, Austria)
Signed: 22nd Jul 2017 (£20,000,000)
Contract: 5 years
Previous Club: Stoke City

KUMB Awards: Player of the Year 2017/18; Best Signing 2017/18; Most Improved Player 2017/18 (third place).



Arnautovic began his career in his native Austria before he signed a contract with Dutch club Twente in 2006. He impressed at De Grolsch Veste and after a fine 2008Ė09 season he joined Italian giants Internazionale on loan.

He joined German side Werder Bremen in June 2010 and became a regular member of the first team. In September 2013 Arnautovic joined English side Stoke City, where he spent four seasons before joining the Hammers.

During his time spent in Italy and Germany, Arnautovic developed a bad reputation with the media and was viewed as "the bad boy of Austrian football". Speaking on the matter in October 2013, he admitted he is "not an angel" but insists the birth of his daughter made him "grow up."


 

Marko Arnautovic is yet play any matches this season.

Watford

4-1: Sunday, 12th May

Whilst a little quiet, he linked well in spells and did very well to react for his goal. Good to see him back to near his old self, whether he stays or goes this summer.

Leicester City

2-2: Saturday, 20th April

It really isnít for a lack of trying, but he looks shot. One excellent cross, but if his head is gone, heís done.

Chelsea

0-2: Monday, 8th April

His running in behind opened up the game for West Ham. Set up a glorious chance for Lanzini, nearly scored himself with a header, did his defensive work in the first half when on the wing.

Everton

0-2: Saturday, 30th March

His reverse pass to Zabaleta was the highlight of a miserable first half, and he did run hard. His pace in behind was the only thing that threatened Evertonís comfortable day. Heís just an easy target for abuse. That said, he isnít on it at the moment. If he doesnít get near that, this side finishes well short of the top ten.

Huddersfield Town

4-3: Saturday, 16th March

He looked a little rusty, although whether Perez made any difference coming on is questionable. Tried hard, did often lead the press, but not a lot came off for West Ham until the last few moments and Marko wasnít on.

Fulham

3-1: Friday, 22nd February

(Replaced Hernandez) Was more dangerous in play than Hernandez, could have had two goals and got a good assist. Movement was good and really came alive when Lanzini came on.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

(Replaced Hernandez) Barely touched the ball but, to be fair, he didnít have much opportunity to.

Crystal Palace

1-1: Saturday, 9th February

(Replaced Hernandez) Didnít really do anything. Not entirely his fault, there was no desire to attack.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-3: Tuesday, 29th January

Anonymous. Heís going to be need to be a lot better a lot sooner if he wants the fans to ignore what others are saying and concentrate on the football. Has to lead the line, heís not as a good when he plays deep, even if he thinks he is.

Bournemouth

0-2: Saturday, 19th January

Arsenal

1-0: Saturday, 12th January

Birmingham City

2-0: Saturday, 5th January

20 minutes before he was withdrawn with a possible back problem. Seemed to be moving fine and was clearly unhappy to go off. Will rarely score an easier goal, but showed good poacherís instinct.

Brighton & Hove Albion

2-2: Wednesday, 2nd January

Burnley

0-2: Sunday, 30th December

Southampton

2-1: Thursday, 27th December

Watford

0-2: Saturday, 22nd December

Fulham

2-0: Saturday, 15th December

Cardiff City

3-1: Tuesday, 4th December

Newcastle United

3-0: Saturday, 1st December

Even when slightly off his game, his quality will shine through. Seemed an effortless understanding with the front three.

Manchester City

0-4: Saturday, 24th November

Couldnít scare Cityís defenders, did make some half chances but a limited display before injury.

Huddersfield Town

1-1: Saturday, 10th November

Not his day - which happens as a striker. He'll know he should've found the net when presented with a golden opportunity; perhaps it arrived a little too early, to Huddersfield's benefit.

Burnley

4-2: Saturday, 3rd November

Hustled and bustled and got West Ham off to great start with his fifth goal of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-3: Wednesday, 31st October

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Saturday, 20th October

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-1: Friday, 5th October

Manchester United

3-1: Saturday, 29th September

A quiet first half but came to life after the break whilst scoring the goal that killed Manchester off after they briefly threatened a fightback.

Macclesfield Town

8-0: Wednesday, 26th September

Everton

3-1: Sunday, 16th September

Wolverhampton Wanderers

0-1: Saturday, 1st September

AFC Wimbledon

3-1: Tuesday, 28th August

Hardly involved and too isolated too often, but still managed to fashion a chance or two in the first half.

Arsenal

1-3: Saturday, 25th August

Looked lively and scored West Ham's only goal - should perhaps have been celebrating at least one more.

Bournemouth

1-2: Saturday, 18th August

Has started the season more like the Bilic Arnie than his far more productive Moyes Arnie. It's just as well he scored the penalty too, as the regular (and deadly) spot-kick taker Noble looked on.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 12th August

Hardly involved and too isolated too often, but still managed to fashion a chance or two in the first half.

Southampton

3-0: Saturday, 31st March

Had the opposing defence on their toes. Full of confidence and very able to beat a player. Made up for his poor miss in the first half with a goal in the second.

Burnley

0-3: Saturday, 10th March

Had the opposing defence on their toes. Full of confidence and very able to beat a player. Made up for his poor miss in the first half with a goal in the second.

Bournemouth

1-1: Saturday, 20th January

Linked up well with Manuel Lanzini on numerous occasions, but wasn't clinical enough on one-on-one situations.

Huddersfield Town

4-1: Saturday, 13th January

Clearly loving life at the moment - he may have ven smiled at one point last week. Took his goal superbly and was particularly unselfish when setting up team mate Lanzini for the third.

West Bromwich Albion

2-1: Tuesday, 2nd January

Never stopped running for the whole match. Always closed defenders down and chased lost causes. Furthermore, he was excellent on the ball and put Carroll's second goal on a plate. Rewarded with a standing ovation after the final whistle as he demonstrated his passion to the fans.

Bournemouth

3-3: Tuesday, 26th December

(Replaced Lanzini) Decent in defence and created, almost singlehandedly, the opportunity that almost put West Ham back on level terms.

Newcastle United

2-3: Saturday, 23rd December

Different class since the managerial takeover. Never stopped running and though his goal arose from a Newcastle error, he still had the pace and the composure to finish the job.

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-3: Friday, 20th October

A shocking performance from our "star" player. Walking around he pitch and showing no interest whatsoever.

Burnley

1-1: Saturday, 14th October

Another anonymous game from Arnautovic. Created next to nothing and was poor in defence.

Swansea City

1-0: Saturday, 30th September

Created next to nothing and had no impact on the game. Must show his potential and the reason why the Club spent so much money on him.

Tottenham Hotspur

Southampton

2-3: Saturday, 19th August

Stupid. Can feel justifiably aggrieved that he walked whilst others stayed on bit if you know the referee is dodgy why give him the chance?

Manchester United

0-4: Sunday, 13th August

Not a good enough performance for a player who is supposed to be our markee signing.

Manchester City

0-3: Friday, 4th August

A debut goal in claret and blue for the former Stoke City man.

Altona 93

3-3: Tuesday, 1st August

A debut goal in claret and blue for the former Stoke City man.

Werder Bremen

2-2: Saturday, 29th July

A debut goal in claret and blue for the former Stoke City man.

Werder Bremen

0-1: Friday, 28th July

(Replaced Burke) A debut in claret and blue for the former Stoke man and new record transfer fee holder.
