West Ham fans have taken to social media to fume over news that Patrice Evra is set to be handed his debut in the club’s clash against Liverpool on Saturday.

The reliable inside source on the Hammers ExWHUemployee has claimed on their Twitter account that manager David Moyes is to give the 36-year-old French defender his first appearance for the club since he arrived on a free transfer earlier this month, having been released from French side Olympique Marseille earlier in the season for assaulting a fan.

The ex-Manchester United defender was left on the bench as an unused substitute for the Irons’ 2-0 win over Watford last time out, and it appears as though he is to be promoted to the starting XI for a clash against his former side’s fierce rivals.

However, the supporters are not so supportive of seeing him handed the opportunity against a rampant Liverpool side, and have turned to Twitter to voice their concern at his inclusion in the line up.

Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

Evra has 273 Premier League appearances under his belt during his time with the Red Devils, where he won five top flight titles, while he has also picked up 81 caps for France.

In other West Ham news, the club are eyeing up a transfer swoop for an international attacker after his heroics in Europe.
