'Disinterested', 'Decent shift' - West Ham fans discuss China-linked Marko Arnautovic's performance

Marko Arnautovic started for West Ham in yesterday’s 1-0 win over Arsenal despite rumours linking him with an exit.

Arnautovic’s brother and agent, Danijel Arnautovic, told talkSPORT that the Austrian forward wants to leave West Ham and force through a move to China.

Despite the ongoing speculation surrounding his future, Arnautovic was named in the starting eleven as West Ham hosted Arsenal.

All eyes were on the 29-year-old and how he would perform in light of his recent media attention.

Some West Ham fans feel understandably betrayed by Arnautovic after the club took a chance on the hot-headed maverick, spending big money to bring him in from Stoke City.

And after a slow start, Arnautovic finally got going under David Moyes, where he scored 11 goals to keep West Ham up last season.

This term, the winger-turned-striker has continued his fine form. In 18 matches, Arnautovic has netted eight goals this season.

As he left the field of play when substituted yesterday, Arnautovic gave a big wave to West Ham fans; was that a farewell gesture? Here are some opinions from West Ham fans about Arnautovic’s performance.
