Agbonlahor hits out at three West Ham big names as David Moyes sack claim issued
Declan Rice, Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen have not performed for West Ham this season and are putting David Moyes under pressure, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward claimed Moyes is “under pressure” as West Ham entered the international break in the relegation zone.
The Hammers are third from bottom, two points from 17th place, after winning just one of their opening seven Premier League games.
Bowen has started all of their Premier League games but is yet to register a goal or an assist while Antonio has found the net once and Rice has one assist.
“With David Moyes, I feel like he has to start picking a formation and sticking with it,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Is it [Gianluca] Scamacca up front? Is it Antonio? Is it [Lucas] Paqueta? He’s been given a bit of money to spend, he needs to start getting results.

“West Ham’s fans are used to fighting towards the top end of the table. This year, they are not going to be doing that.
“Will the fans start to turn at home, at the London Stadium?
“It’s like they are being brought back down to earth West Ham fans and they won’t be happy.
“The pressure will be on the manager because they need to start getting results and playing better football. They are not playing attractive football.
“Bowen’s not the same player. He’s very lucky to be in the England squad. Declan Rice hasn’t started well, Michail Antonio can’t score.
“It’s worrying times for West Ham, for sure.”
