It has been a wretched few months for Marko Arnautovic and that continued as he pulled on an Austria shirt on Thursday night. The West Ham forward played the full 90 minutes for his country in their 1-0 home defeat to Poland but failed to get back on the goal trail with a performance that divided Irons as well as international fans. Some claimed the controversial 29-year-old, whose form has nosedived after he tried to engineer a January transfer to China, was “seriously good” as he moved quicker than he had at any time over the previous three months. Others suggested he had a dreadful game that highlighted once again how far he is off from his 2018 form.  The truth was somewhere in between. Arnautovic looked Austria’s most dangerous player, and there were glimpses of his quality, but much of what he did failed to come off. Those looking for hints of an end to the barren spell that has not yielded a goal since 2 January were disappointed.
