Michael Owen has predicted that West Ham will finish in 10th position this season.
The Hammers really struggled last season. And we barely ended up avoiding relegation.
David Moyes has been unable to strengthen his ranks at the London Stadium this summer. The Scot did turn Tomas Soucek’s loan deal into a permanent one, but apart from that, he has had no money to spend.
Grady Diangana, Albian Ajeti and Jordan Hugill have all left.
It has been a bleak summer so far. And many West Ham fans are worried about the season ahead.
Michael Owen thinks the Hammers will be just fine, however. He predicted that West Ham will finish comfortably in 10th position this season via his official Twitter account:

That really is quite the prediction. Every single West Ham fan would surely take a 10th placed finish if it was offered to us now.
It isn’t outside the realms of reality. But Moyes absolutely must strengthen his squad if that is to happen.
We need a right-back, a left-back, a centre-back and another centre-forward.
And with our current financial state, it is highly unlikely that that will happen. Who knows though? Perhaps the owners will have a change of heart and surprise us before the end of the transfer window.
