Daniel Gabbidon slates West Ham duo on Twitter following defeat v Bournemouth
By Matt Farr
Daniel Gabbidon has criticised West Ham duo Sofiane Feghouli and Manuel Lanzini for their performances in the defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday.
The former Hammers defender took to his personal Twitter account following the game to slam the pair for their lack of defensive contribution, as West Ham shipped three goals on their way to a second successive defeat.
Feghouli & Lanzini gonna cost #westham this game from a defensive point of view can't understand him playing LW getting murdered!

Michail Antonio had put West Ham into an early lead on his return to the starting eleven after missing the previous clash with Chelsea with suspension.
Substitute Andre Ayew also found the back of the net for the away side, but it was a Joshua King hat-trick that turned the tie in Bournemouth’s favour.
But Gabbidon did not believe that Slaven Bilic’s selection decision to play Feghouli at left-wing was justified, due to his inability to assist full-back Aaron Cresswell in defence.

He also admitted on Twitter that Robert Snodgrass would have been a better fit for the role as opposed to the Algerian international, but Bilic opted to axe Snodgrass to accommodate the returning Antonio.
The defeat for West Ham grants Burnley an opportunity on Sunday to jump ahead in the Premier League table, when they go up against Liverpool.
West Ham are currently 12th in the table, just nine points clear of the relegation zone with 10 games left to go in the campaign.
