West Ham may have escaped the immediate threat of a Premier League affiliation, but they are still not saved. After three losses in a row, they faced Manchester United on Sunday night. The Red Devils allowed their opponents to score a very cheap goal.
Sunday’s Premier League schedule offered two interesting matches. In the first one Arsenal managed to beat Newcastle 2: 0, in the second one West Ham and Manchester United clashed in the evening.
While the Hammers are fighting to keep their Premier League affiliation, the Red Devils have to gain points in order to stay in the top four of the table, which guarantees participation in the Champions League. Indeed, until recently, a struggling Liverpool have been dangerously close, and Brighton are not out of the picture either.
The favourite for the match was clear, however. Despite the fact that Erik ten Hag faces the inconvenience of an extensive medical staff in the selection of the starting eleven. In particular, the absence of the stopper duo of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez is a problem.
In addition, the form of the goalkeeper is very much in question. David De Gea has made more than one blunder this season and has faced a lot of criticism. And unfortunately he will face it after Sunday’s game.
It was the 27th minute when he was caught off guard by Saïd Benrahma, who sent West Ham into a 1-0 lead. A completely cheap goal.
However, it should be mentioned that the Spanish goalkeeper is not the only one to blame. The defensive work of all the players who were close to the whole action of the Hammers star was absolutely dismal. A similar lack of emphasis is incomprehensible.
Thus, West Ham went to the booths after the first half with a result they probably did not expect, but could have been maximally satisfied with.
