West Ham acquired Felipe Anderson from Lazio and the midfielder will be a certain starter for The Hammers. They also have signed Yarmalenko from Dortmund and he too is a nifty footballer. Manuel Pelligrini will manage the side and if the players adapt to his style of football the opponents will have a lot of defending to do.
