When West Ham’s fixtures were announced before the season started, it looked as though the Hammers were due for a difficult start.
Their first six games – Newcastle, Arsenal, Wolves, Leicester, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City – looked a recipe for a bad start, especially following an opening-day defeat to the Toon.
However, West Ham have managed to silence their critics. They have eight points from six games and sit in 12th place in the Premier League.
That’s a very decent record, especially when you consider how tough the run of fixtures has been. It doesn’t get any easier for West Ham either. They face Liverpool at Anfield in their next fixture on Saturday.
However, after good performances and results against Spurs and Manchester City recently, West Ham should have a go against Liverpool. They have nothing to lose.
Meanwhile, manager David Moyes has done far better than anyone expected. Especially when you consider West Ham struggled for much of last season.
And it seems West Ham’s players have also been impressed.
A recent report in the Daily Mail claimed a number of West Ham players want Moyes to be handed a new deal after such a good start to the season.
Moyes’ contract expires at the end of the season. However, should West Ham maintain this form, surely Moyes will be given a new contract by West Ham’s owners?
Demands for a new deal will certainly increase if West Ham can pull off a shock against Liverpool. He will have all but earned one if he can mastermind a win at Anfield.
