West Ham News and Form

It is a poor run of three straight league defeats for West Ham at the moment. They have conceded exactly two goals in each of those games as well. Looking back further they have suffered a defeat in five of their last seven played now, home and away. They were on a strong three-match winning streak at home before they tanked badly in a team defeat against Everton last time out there. That leaves the Hammers with a W8 D3 L6 home record this season in the top flight.

West Ham have averaged 1.6 goals per home game this season with 47% of all of their home games going over 3.5 goals. Of their eight wins at home, this season in the top flight, five of them have been by at least a two-goal margin. The Hammers have scored 62% of their away home goals in the second half of their games. Surprisingly they have only managed to open the scoring in seven home games, not a particularly high return. In total, the Irons have earned a clean sheet in 18% of their home fixtures only.
