West Ham news: Manuel Pellegrini responds to ANGER claims after team line-ups leaked
The Chilean always names his team four hours before kick-off but an unofficial Hammers account is sharing the announcement earlier than even the players find out.
The 64-year-old was made aware of Twitter user @ExWHUemployee, which successfully announced 89 consecutive line-ups before they were made public.
The account tweets out their ‘predicted’ team, linking to The West Ham Way website, a popular fan page.
And it was reported by the Times this week that the Hammers boss was concerned that the account knows the line-up before the players are told.
