The Hammers face Everton at Goodison Park in our next game on Sunday afternoon.

And it could be argued that Diop should come in for Ogbonna at Goodison Park.

The 24-year-old moved to the London Stadium from Toulouse for around £25 million in the summer of 2018 (The Express).

The towering centre-back made a fine start to life with the Hammers and was totally dominant during his debut campaign in England.

Unfortunately for Diop, however, he has really struggled to replicate that form over the past 18 months or so.

The former Toulouse ace has been very impressive at the start of this season, however. Diop was very good against Dinamo Zagreb and Rapid Vienna in the Europa League and was truly magnificent against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

Meanwhile, Ogbonna has looked nowhere near his best.

The 33-year-old Italian was poor against Brentford, Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Newcastle.

Time for West Ham ace Issa Diop to come in and take over from Angelo Ogbonna?

Perhaps it’s time for a change.

A centre-back pairing of Issa Diop and Kurt Zouma is the future at West Ham.

 

Diop deserves a chance to prove himself alongside Zouma in the Premier League.

We are by no means writing Ogbonna off just yet. He still has a very important role to play for West Ham.

Perhaps Diop, with his speed and agility will be the better option for the Hammers away at Everton, however, what with their pacy and potent front-line.
