West Ham record with 18-19 third kit | List of games played in grey shirt

West Ham’s third kit hasn’t been very lucky for them in the current 2018/19 season. As on date, the Hammers have played four games in this grey alternate strip and haven’t won even one of them. They also failed to score in three of the four games, and the solitary goal they managed in the fourth game came from the penalty spot.

West Ham record with 2018/2019 third kit– Played 4, L3, D1, GF 1 (penalty), GA 9

All four of these games were away from home, and three of those four teams, with all due respect to them, are clubs against whom the Hammers would’ve expected to take at least a point, if not all three.

Media Player Ratings- How did West Ham’s players fare at Turf Moor against Burnley

West Ham missed out on an opportunity to go 7th in the table as their 2018 ended on a disappointing note following a 2-0 loss to Burnley at Turf Moor. This was the Hammers’ first ever Premier League game with David Coote as referee and they put in an uncharacteristically flat performance, with fatigue perhaps affecting several players, as Sean Dyche’s side ran out comfortable winners. Burnley could probably won 5 or 6-0 if it hadn’t been for the Clarets’ profligacy in front of goal and the brilliance of Lukasz Fabianski between the sticks for the Hammers. [Read more…]

Five Talking Points from Burnley v West Ham- Hammers slump to disappointing defeat

Goals from Chris Wood and teenager Dwight McNeil saw West Ham slump to defeat to struggling Burnley at Turf Moor. It was a poor end to the year for the Hammers, who looked flat and were defensively all over the place.

Manuel Pellegrini made two changes to the side that had beaten Southampton, with Marko Arnautovic coming upfront and Mark Noble returning in midfield. For Burnley, inspirational skipper Tom Heaton returned to start a Premier League game for the Clarets for the first time since September 2017, with former Hammer Joe Hart on the bench for Sean Dyche’s side.

Burnley v West Ham predictions- How do the pundits reckon the Hammers will fare against Sean Dyche’s men?

West Ham will look to finish December on a winning note when they travel to Turf Moor to take on Sean Dyche’s Burnley on Sunday afternoon. The Hammers have already had their best ever month in Premier League history, picking up an unprecedented fifteen points in December. Another three points against the Clarets will see them create another club record and potentially a Manager of the Month nomination for Manuel Pellegrini.

With Saturday’s results seeing Everton and Leicester both being upset and Watford drawing, West Ham will jump to 7th in the table if they win against Burnley. That’s a pretty big incentive, and would cap an almost perfect end to the year for Pellegrini after the club’s horror start to the season (they lost their first four league games) [Read more…]
