Said Benrahma faces a very bleak future indeed at West Ham United in my opinion, after his bizarre omission from the team against Wolves.

Benrahma not starting games under David Moyes is nothing new of course.

The Algerian seemed to incur the wrath of the Scot during his debut campaign at the London Stadium for some unknown reason and ever since then, he has been far from a regular starter.

His lack of action for West Ham this season recently cost him his place in the Algeria international squad as well.

Said Benrahma is a real talent and although he hasn’t been as consistent as we’d have liked for West Ham, we still think that he’s our most creative player.

In fact, the 27-year-old has created more chances than anyone else in the West Ham team this season (Fotmob).

Yet he can’t get a consistent run of starts for love nor money. Very strange indeed…

Said Benrahma faces bleak West Ham future

Now, the fact that the ex-Brentford man didn’t start against Wolves wasn’t a huge shock.

He clearly isn’t one of Moyes’s favourites after all.

What was really bizarre, however, was when Maxwel Cornet went off injured midway through the first-half, and Moyes chose to bring Pablo Fornals on in his place, instead of Benrahma.

As much as we all love Pablo, he just isn’t a left winger. That game yesterday was crying out for someone like Benrahma to help us open Wolves up.

West Ham won the match 2-0 in the end so no questions were really asked of Moyes, and that substitution in particular.

Now, if Said Benrahma is being honest with himself, he must realise that his future lies away from West Ham.

Don’t get me wrong, I think that selling the Algerian would be a massive mistake from the Hammers. It seems as though he will have to leave though if he is to ever fulfil his potential.

Benrahma and Moyes are clearly not a match made in heaven.

And in my opinion, the 27-year-old’s bizarre omission from the game against Wolves yesterday was a clear indicator that Moyes views many other players as more reliable options.
