Alex Scott made a brilliant observation about West Ham United, when speaking on BBC Match of the Day 2 last night.
The Hammers earned a truly massive three points against Leicester City at the London Stadium yesterday.
David Moyes’s men are now sitting pretty in fourth spot in the Premier League table.
West Ham have seven cup finals remaining and perhaps four wins and a draw from those games will be enough to see us qualify for the Champions League next season.
It really is incredible to think they we are fourth after 31 games having lost Angelo Ogbonna to injury in February, Declan Rice 10 days ago and Michail Antonio last week.
They are three of our best players. Moyes’s men just keep producing the goods though! And it’s great to see.
Alex Scott delivers brilliant West Ham verdict
The Hammers have surprised everyone this season.
Alex Scott told BBC Match of the Day 2 last night what has impressed her most about West Ham this term:
“They really were (terrific). Do you know what’s impressed me with West Ham? We have become accustomed to thinking that teams in the top four have to have a certain style. The way you play, completing so many passes before you score a goal. West Ham have done away with that and it’s not the wrong way. They’re playing to their strengths and saying, ‘no that’s not us’. Today’s game, on the transition, West Ham’s first thought is, ‘how quickly and direct can we be, get bodies forward and catch Leicester out?’ This is what they’ve done all season. That’s what I’ve been impressed with. They’ve done it in their style, their way that’s different from anyone else in the top flight.”
What a brilliant analysis of West Ham’s current playing philosophy. Especially over the past three games.
We are taking the game to every team we play. Ok, the West Ham players need to learn how to see out leads better. But that will come with experience.
It’s Newcastle away up next for West Ham. A win would put us in an incredibly strong position heading into the final six-game stretch.
