Why West Ham need a new Felipe Anderson after his return from injury to fire them to safety

West Ham winger Felipe Anderson hasn't had the most productive season of his career in 2019/20, even before his injury suffered against Sheffield United which has ruled him out for more than a month.

Stats are one thing to highlight where a player needs to improve upon a return from injury but the eye test often never fails - West Ham and Moyes need to see more from Anderson when he is back in action.

West Ham's shots on goal before and after Anderson's injury as well make for an interesting read.

But with the winger set to return from injury against Manchester City next week off the bench, just how big of a player could he be in West Ham's fight against relegation from the League?

Anderson is averaging just three progressive runs per game and just two touches per game in the opposition box for the Hammers this season before his injury at Bramall Lane.

Playing as a winger, Anderson hasn't been hitting the byline enough either as you can see on the touch map.

Prior to his injury, as you can see below in his shot map, Anderson has been making some poor decisions in the final third as he is taking on far too many difficult shots on goal (yellow colours) as opposed to the easier ones (red) Lots of them are speculative pot shots from distance outside the area as the Brazilian struggles to create better shooting opportunities for himself and his teammates were unable to help him as well.
