‘Sweet music to my ears’ - West Ham fans react on Twitter to speculation senior player to start v Everton

By Russell Edge

West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to celebrate amid speculation that Slavan Bilic is set to recall goalkeeper Adrian to the starting XI for their home clash against Everton.

Club insider Ex-WHU employee reported on Twitter on Friday that the 30-year-old goalkeeper will make his first appearance for the Hammers since their 5-0 defeat at home to Manchester City in the FA Cup in Janaury.

It is said by the account that the Spanish keeper has been used in training in preparation for the Premier League fixture at London Stadium.

He will replace Darren Randolph, who was at fault for Fabio Borini’s 90th minute equaliser in his side’s 2-2 draw against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Adrian started the season as the Hammers’ first choice goalkeeper, but lost his place early in November to 29-year-old Randolph after a disappointing series of performances, including an error in his last league game against Stoke back in November.

However, it appears that Slavan Bilic is ready to make a U-turn on his decision with just five games remaining for the Hammers in this campaign as they look to consolidate their season.

Fans have taken to social media to back their manager’s decision and celebrate the return of a player who has played a key role for the club over the last couple of seasons.
