Hammers must end Haaland hell


West Ham will be determined to halt the Haaland hell when they clash with City at the London Stadium this weekend.

The brilliant striker has so far scored six of the team’s 11 goals this season as he looks to overhaul the 61 – YES 61 – he scored in all appearances last season.

That included two against us in the 2-0 defeat at the London Stadium l before grabbing another in the 3-0 defeat up there in May.

These are incredible numbers from perhaps the best striker the Premier League has ever seen and the pressure will truly be on the likes of Aguerd and Zouma.

Bearing in mind that City bought him for around £45 million via a release clause from Borrusia Dortmund he really must be the signing of all time.

But I’m backing our boys to give him his toughest time this season as we continue to go about our business in determined fashion.
