Stats say Hammers on highest of highs


The mighty Irons  are now four games into their 2023-24 campaigns, but how do our starts compare to previous seasons?

On your behalf, CandH have sieved through the historic data.

West Ham United

Record so far: P4 W3 D1 L0 – 10 points

The Hammers should be happy. With 10 points collected from their opening four games of the Premier League campaign, they have equalled their highest points tally at this stage of a season – level with 1999-00.

The UEFA Europa Conference League champions ( I love writing that) have dealt well with the departure of captain and star player Declan Rice to Arsenal, winning three and drawing one of their four games.

We have even scored nine goals, which we’ve only bettered at this stage of a Premier League season on one occasion (2021-22: 10 goals).

West Ham’s best-ever points tally in a Premier League season came in 2020-21, when they secured 65 points. We’ve already got a four-point head start on that campaign (six points after four games in 2020-21).
