West Ham forward Jordan Hugill scored his second goal in four matches for QPR after joining the Championship club on a season-long loan. The 27-year-old scored in the 3-1 defeat to Swansea on Wednesday night.
The striker has never played under manager Manuel Pellegrini, having been loaned out to Middlesbrough last season, and some fans on Twitter are asking whether he’d be more use to the team if he had remained at the London Stadium:
why don’t we recall him?

It is debatable whether Hugill would have added anything to the squad if he had remained with the Hammers this campaign. He only scored seven goals for Boro in 41 appearances last campaign and has not really shown the sort of form that got him his £10m move from Preston North End in January 2018.
If he goes on to score 20+ goals for QPR this season then Pellegrini may want to take a second look at the player. Otherwise, his temporary move to QPR should hopefully showcase his skills so he can be sold on a permanent basis.
