West Ham United – Season Preview

Nickname: The Hammers
Stadium: London Stadium (Capacity 62,500)
Manager: David Moyes (SCO)
Last Season: 14th

It was a season to remember for West Ham fans with the euphoria of becoming Europa Conference League champions but their domestic form suffered as a result. Back in Europe and without their midfield stalwart, what will the season have in store for the Hammers?

Key Player: Jarrod Bowen

It was a scintillating end of season for Bowen, who scored the winner to secure the Hammers European glory. His stats dropped off generally compared to 21/22 but we expect him to be back to his best this year.

Star Signing: Wait and See

At the time of writing, West Ham are trying to find ways to spend the Declan Rice money. A midfield replacement is the main focus but they are big shoes to fill.

First Match: Bournemouth Away (August 12)

A winnable start on the road for West Ham. They've beaten Bournemouth in all of their last three meetings without conceding a goal.

Predicted Finish: 11th

A lot depends whether they can effectively replace Declan Rice, but either way the West Ham squad looks to have more quality than a lot of teams. That combined with the confidence of being European champions, we expect it'll be a respectable mid-table finish.

Do you think the Hammers can outperform our prediction?

West Ham - Top half finish: 2.00

(odds correct as of July 31, 2023, and subject to change)

Did you know? Both England's goalscorers in the 1966 World Cup final were West Ham players (Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst) as well as the captain (Bobby Moore).
