West Ham had an unbelievable £127m of players on the bench v City 😱

If David Moyes needed any more criticism, he surely broke or came close to breaking a club-record, against Manchester City of all opponents, by leaving an insane £127m worth of players on the bench.

Of course, West Ham ended up losing 2-0 away at the Etihad on Wednesday, with the Hammers managing just 22 per cent possession while forcing Ederson to make a total of zero saves.

In comparison, the players on the pitch only cost a total of £72.5, while £25m signing Pablo Fornals did not even make the bench.

After blowing out Bournemouth 4-0 in his first match back in charge of the Hammers, David Moyes has led West Ham to seven straight contests without a win and currently has them in 18th place. one point from safety.
