West Ham are much improved under Manuel Pellegrini this season. For the first time in what feels like a long time, there is an element of control surrounding the club.
The manager has improved the team in the transfer market and developed them tactically, resulting in a much better season for the Hammers.
With the end of the campaign looming, we recently asked supporters, who has been the club’s best performers this season?
The results are in and this is how West Ham fans ranked the club’s top 10 players this season.
10: Aaron Cresswell - 16%
Cresswell may not have got the same number of plaudits this season as he has done previously, but he makes it into the top 10.
9: Mark Noble - 20%
Noble’s presence around the club is still felt, despite the player approaching the latter stages of his career.
8: Pablo Zabaleta - 23%
A very shrewd piece of business by West Ham to bring him in back in 2017. He’s been an important figure under Pellegrini.
7: Robert Snodgrass - 27%
Continues to battle against the odds and prove his worth to this West Ham squad.
6: Javier Hernandez - 28%
Hernandez has eight goals in all competitions for West Ham this season. The likes of Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic have dominated the headlines for good and bad reasons this season, possibly overshadowing the Mexican.
5: Fabian Balbuena - 30%
Another shrewd piece of business from the Hammers. Arrived in England after spending his career in South America and has taken to the Premier League with relative ease.
4: Issa Diop - 43%
Issa Diop has shown just how good he could be in the years to come with a number of impressive performances for the Hammers this season.
3: Felipe Anderson - 54%
The Brazilian has been an instant hit in London, with a number of dazzling displays. The best is surely yet to come from Anderson as he continues to adapt and improve for the Hammers.
2: Declan Rice - 83%
He’s established himself with West Ham and now he’s trying to do the same with England. Rice has become one of the first names on Pellegrini’s team sheet and fans will be hoping that continues for a very long time.
1: Lukasz Fabianski - 94%
Lukasz Fabianski has saved West Ham on more than one occasion this year. His impressive performances in between the sticks have pushed the Hammers into the top half of the table this season.
