West Ham star named in Premier League Team of the Week for Round 3

We didn’t have a single West Ham player feature in any pundit’s Team of the Week for the previous two rounds, but the club do finally have a representative in Round 3, thanks to their upset win over Watford at Vicarage Road.

That player is club record signing Sebastien Haller, who scored twice (including a bicycle kick) to open his Premier League account for the Hammers.

Haller appears in virtually every pundit’s Team of the Week. No other West Ham player features though- perhaps a reflection on the shaky nature of the Hammers defence and the number of chances the Hornets had, but didn’t take!

While we’ve given you four instances of Haller making it to the Team of the Week, here’s one where he wasn’t able to- Jamie Redknapp chose Joelinton, Salah and Abraham, leaving no spot for Haller. He however did mention that Haller and Aston Villa’s Wesley had “silenced their doubters”
