4 West Ham Players Hammers Fans Hope to See More of Next Season

​After an anti-climactic finish to the season, West Ham United fans are largely delighted with the performance of Slaven Bilic's charges, having been treated to some unforgettable moments, despite failure to achieve European qualification via the Premier League. 


Although Europa League qualification does appear likely - courtesy of an expected Manchester United victory against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final - Hammers fans will be hoping that that does not mean an exponential procurement of new players and that some of the current players to have featured less this season still get an opportunity.


With that in mind, here are some of the players that fans will be hoping to see more of...    

4. Michail Antonio (in the Correct Position)

Michail Antonio has played 26 games this season, scoring a remarkable nine goals, but fans need to see him as a winger far more next season.


With the injury to Carl Jenkinson and Sam Byram not being fully adapted to the Premier League, Slaven Bilic opted to play Antonio at right back for the past few months.


The strong, pacey winger has struggled in a defensive role, but it is clear how effective he can be when he gets to push forward.


Fans simply must see Antonio in his natural position next season, as he could be a key player for the Hammers.​

3. James Collins

​Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna are two of the most underrated centre backs in the Premier League, but James Collins has already proved his worth with noteworthy performances and that should set him in good stead ahead of next season.


The Welshman has been brilliant this season; committed and a real leader in the back line, and since he has been dropped in favour of Reid and Ogbonna, West Ham have been haemorrhaging goals.


He may not be the future of the club and he may not be the most technically gifted, but Bilic needs to trust him next season to bring down the goals conceded tally dramatically down.

2. Reece Oxford

​Reece Oxford had a dream Premier League debut on the opening day of the season, keeping Mesut Ozil quiet all game.


But since being substituted in the home defeat against Leicester, he has struggled for game time, coming off the bench only on a handful of occasions.


Oxford clearly has great ability, and captained the Under 21 side to the youth Premier League cup, but with more game time in the first team he will improve.


There have been a lot of rumours surrounding the youngster's future, but if he commits to claret and blue, he deserves to be rewarded with minutes on the Olympic Stadium pitch.

1. Pedro Obiang

​Pedro Obiang hasn't featured a great deal this season because of the phenomenal form of Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate.


But the midfielder was composed and level headed in the cup games he featured in and has come off the bench many times to solidify the centre of the park.


He has a real fight on his hands to force his way into the starting eleven, but he offers something both Noble and Kouyate don't, so could be utilised in certain situations.


Hopefully rumours of his unrest and frustration at a lack of playing time are untrue, because Pedro Obiang could be a brilliant player for Bilic side next season, none more so than in the Europa League.
