West Ham are currently sitting in 16th spot in the Premier League table.

They are outside the bottom three purely because of a superior goal difference to those in and around them in the Premier League table.

Since David Moyes took over on December 29th, the Hammers have won just two out of a possible 10 league games.

In truth, that is relegation form.

West Ham were inside the bottom three when Moyes were took over. The Hammers have since taken just eight points from a possible 30. Yet they have still managed to move outside the bottom three during that period of time.

That has only been made possible because the teams in and around them have been incredibly poor over the past couple of months.

Rock bottom Norwich have won only won out of their last five league games. 19th placed Aston Villa have lost their last four Premier League games. 18th placed Bournemouth have just one win in their last five, 17th placed Watford have taken only five points from their last seven games.

 

And 15th placed Brighton are in free-fall, having not won a Premier League game since December.

But West Ham’s luck will surely run out soon. The teams inside the bottom five or six WILL not keep losing games.

This weekend could be pivotal. All of the bottom six face games at home. So surely some of them will pick up wins.

The Hammers need to focus on themselves. They need to win games, and fast.

It’s Wolves at home up next for David Moyes’s side. And nothing less than three points will do.

With Tottenham and Chelsea to come after the Wolves game, the West Ham players will have to be at their very best over the next few weeks, if they are to head into the two-week international break outside the bottom three.
