West Ham seem to have somewhat of a problem in the right-wing position.

The Hammers look like an impressive attacking outfit, but not everything is rosey at the moment.

Michail Antonio suffered a serious hamstring injury at the end of last month, and is not expected back until at least January.

Meanwhile, Andriy Yarmolenko has only just returned from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, and he looks well off the pace.

Pablo Fornals replaced the Ukraine international against Villa after 62 minutes last night, and the Spaniard was equally unimpressive.


So is it time for Manuel Pellegrini to throw Robert Snodgrass into the mix against Manchester United on Sunday?

The 32-year-old has started just one Premier League game for West Ham this season. Now is surely the time to bring him back into the fold, however.

Yarmolenko clearly needs more time to get back to his best physically, whilst fans need to be patient with Fornals, as he tries to adjust to the intensity of the Premier League and life in England.

And as long as Snodgrass has been working hard in training, he might just be the best option for the Hammers against United at the weekend.

On his day, the Scotland international is a really top class player. And he might just have an opportunity now to remind Pellegrini how important he still is to West Ham.
