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.

Pundit Predictions- How will West Ham fare against Liverpool?

Game Week 25’s final fixture sees West Ham host Liverpool at the London Stadium. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will be keen to re-establish their five point lead at the top after seeing rivals Man City convincingly beat Arsenal yesterday evening at the Etihad. West Ham, on the other hand, are seeking to stem a run of three defeats- they go into this fixture on the back of consecutive losses to Bournemouth, Wimbledon (FA Cup) and Wolves.

The Wolves performance was the poorest of the lot, with a reasonably full strength Hammers side (including Marko Arnautovic who later had to hobble off with a foot injury), going down rather tamely at Molineux.

Few will give West Ham any chance against Liverpool, who have a fantastic recent record against them, but as we know, the Hammers tend to raise their games for big name teams, and the London Stadium is not an easy place to travel to, as the likes of Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal will testify to.

Let’s take a look at what various pundits have to say about their predictions for this game. [Read more…]

Liverpool 4-0 West Ham 2018- Hammers put to the sword at Anfield

If Manuel Pellegrini needed an idea of the enormous task that lies in front of him as he seeks to rebuild this club, he got it on the opening day of the season at Anfield. There was a mild air of optimism among the travelling fans, with the Hammers among the top five spenders domestically in this transfer market. Five of the ten signings made by Pellegrini this summer- Lukasz Fabianski in goal, Ryan Fredericks at right back, Fabian Balbuena at CB, Jack Wilshere in the centre of the park and club record signing Felipe Anderson on the left side of midfield, were given their league debuts for the club in this game.

West Ham effectively lined up in a 4-2-3-1 position, with Arthur Masuaku at LB, Declan Rice and skipper Mark Noble sitting deeper in midfield and Marko Arnautovic on his own upfront. Liverpool were in a 4-3-3, with the trio of Naby Keita, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner in midfield behind their attacking triumvirate of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. [Read more…]

Hammers to begin season with trip to Anfield

Manuel Pellegrini’s first league game as West Ham manager will see his side make the trip north to Anfield to take on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. The Hammers have a home fixture against Bournemouth sandwiched between two tough games away at Liverpool and Arsenal respectively.

While that’s most definitely a tough start to the season, the festive period seems to have given a decent round of fixtures- Newcastle, Cardiff, Palace, Fulham, Watford, Southampton and Burnley, all of whom are definitely beatable on paper. [Read more…]
