West Ham escape relegation zone

new-premier-league-logo-2016-17-1West Ham have escaped the relegation zone for the first time this season thanks to Manchester United beating Everton 4-0 at Old Trafford this afternoon.

It made it three losses in a row for the Merseyside team who have replaced West Ham in the eighteenth spot in the league table on a goal difference of minus eight.  Four teams now have four points including West Ham who now occupies 17th place.  Leicester and Brighton are the two other sides on four points on slightly better goal difference.

Just one win could propel the Hammers into 13th spot with Arsenal only in 12th spot on 7 points. AFC Bournemouth remains in 19th position with one win at the weekend after three losses on the bounce.

Crystal Palace remains in last place after setting a new record for losing four games in a row at the start of a season without scoring a single goal in top flight. Palace face  Manchester City and Manchester Utd Away, then Chelsea at home before Newcastle away and West Ham at home in their next five games. A guarantee they will score against us despite what happens against the others.

  1. I recall several posts over the summer saying we needed to spend money like Everton…..

    • I said exactly the same thing earlier.Too many people complaining on this forum when it could be so much worse.At least we appear to have a bit of direction and stability as injured players come back.Everton have spent a fortune with new owners investing heavily.Sure we can return to the transfer market in January if needed.Personally i would love to see another creative player to help Lanzini but Everton are finding as we did last season that buying loads of new players is not always the answer.

    • Lol Schuauthing.You are right,it was an Everton transfer window love-in on here from a few geezers 😁
      I didnt care who they signed because i said as soon as they sold Lukaku they would be shagged.

  2. Koeman is suffering the same scenario we did trying to integrate too many new players whilst losing arguably his best player, I expect them to turn it around because they bought better quality than we did but as a few of us said it’s not easy to integrate that many players in a short time and now they don’t have Lukaku to nick them goals.

    • Yes 32 I wouldn’t be worried about Everton either.As for the headline “West Ham escape relegation zone” perhaps Sean could save tit for may 2018.LOL

    • They bought crap at inflated prices ? We had crap on loan apart from feguliey and snods and fonte, that’s why32 ? BIgboys didn’t buy crap though did they ? Plus they play their players in their proper positions lol ?
