#10 Joe Hart (West Ham United) - Loan

Arsenal v West Ham United - Premier League
Joe Hart stands a chance of missing out on the plane to Russia

What a steep fall Joe Hart has seen since Pep Guardiola's arrival at Manchester City forced him out of the club. After an unconvincing spell out on loan at Torino, Guardiola knew that he couldn't depend on Hart if he had to have genuine hopes of making a title challenge. He brought in Ederson from Benfica, and once again sent the England keeper out on loan, this time to West Ham United.

Hart’s spell at the London Stadium has been nothing short of a nightmare and he was even dropped for Adrian midway through the campaign after a number of high-profile errors. West Ham conceded a shocking 39 goals in the 19 games that Hart started in goal and it translated to just 3 wins.

Hart has unfortunately suffered such a sharp decline in form that he has also been ignored by Gareth Southgate in the 23-man England squad for the World Cup, despite being the most experienced player available to be selected.
