David Moyes hDavid Moyes has a real dilemma on his hands for next weekend’s West Ham United vs Everton clash.
West Ham play host to Everton at the London Stadium next Sunday, and David Moyes will be forced into making one change.
The Hammers lost 4-1 to Aston Villa yesterday, and it was a bad day all-round for Moyes and his players.
However, to add insult to injury, the yellow card received by Emerson Palmieri means that he will miss our next game through suspension.
And now Moyes has a huge selection dilemma on his hands…
Emerson, 29, has been one of our best players this season, alongside the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Lucas Paqueta
So not being able to select him on Sunday will be a big blow for Moyes, obviously. However, who will the Scottish coach recruit to the team this weekend?
Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson are both recovering from injury, but even if they are fit and ready next weekend, I really don’t want either of them in the starting lineup.
In my opinion, neither the 33-year-old left-back nor the 23-year-old versatile full-back are good enough to play in the Premier League.
And for this reason, I think Moyes should move Nayef Aguerd to left-back, with Konstantinos Mavropanos alongside.
The 27-year-old is extremely fragile at centre-back, but he has what it takes to succeed at left-back. He has great pace, is a good tackler and I feel he will be less exposed on the touchline.
Look, he would definitely be a better choice than Cresswell or Johnson, that’s for sure. And in my opinion, Moyes should field the Moroccan for Emerson in West Ham v Everton on Sunday.
