‘Whaaaaat?’ ‘He’s Defo Playin V Man U Then’ Fans Discuss West Ham Star’s Absence Against Dinamo

West Ham manager David Moyes did not name Alphonse Areola in the starting lineup for the Europa League group stage match against Dinamo Zagreb.

The Frenchman was expected to be in the team for the game in Croatia, but current number one Lukasz Fabianski was selected instead.

It has led some fans on Twitter to ask when Moyes will start Areola, with many hoping it means that he will be playing against Manchester United on Sunday:



There were a few surprising selection choices by Moyes for the Dinamo game, with the decision on Areola probably the most perplexing of the lot.

The 28-year-old has yet to make his competitive debut for the Hammers, and tonight’s game seemed the perfect opportunity to get the keeper some game time. However, with Fabianski’s inclusion, it would suggest that either Areola isn’t rated by Moyes (which is unlikely), or there is something else going on. We may find out more at the weekend.
