The Hammers have been so wasteful in recent weeks.

We should have put Burnley out of sight a couple of weeks ago. And the same could be said about the final 10 minutes of the first-half against Brighton last night.

West Ham have been brilliant this season on the whole.

David Moyes has performed absolute miracles in charge of the Hammers.

Having said that, missing out on European football now would be absolutely gut-wrenching considering the position we were in just a few weeks ago.

David Moyes concerned by West Ham profligacy

The Hammers need to find a way to be more clinical in front of goal. We have to put the West Brom and Southampton games to bed early and see where that takes us.

Moyes spoke to reporters last night and responded when asked if his side’s recent wastefulness in front of goal is worrying, as quoted by Football.London:

“Yes, it is (a worry). The play in the final third or the final decision has not been good enough I agree with you.”

One obvious solution will be to sign a top class striker in January.

The answer is not so black and white, however.

Every single attacking player needs to improve upon their incisiveness in the final third.

We just need to be more ruthless as a team.

Hopefully the West Ham players make up for their recent goal-shy performances during our final two games against West Brom and Southampton.

Nothing less than six points will do. We still believe. Let’s keep the faith. COYI X
