Palace End Hammer’s Winning Start with Draw at London Stadium

It was an emotional return to the London Stadium as I have not seen my brother for quite some time and it was wonderful to see him. It was also great to see so many familiar faces – few faces I did not recognise from the final game before the lockdown last year. The hairs on the back of my neck raised as we heard the crowd singing and immersed ourselves in the bustle before the game. So glad to be back.

The Hammers made the Reds defence look amateurish as they repeatedly failed to track runners from free-kicks, highlighted cruelly for the equaliser as Antonio caught the defence napping as they seemed to be ready for Anderson to play high into the area, instead of a low pass to set up Michail for his diagonal run and shot fired pass Allison.

From The Vaults: West Ham United v Burnley Saturday 3rd November 2018

Despite a winless October West Ham put in a performance that Manuel Pellegrini described at the time as the best by the team since he took charge. Lead by man of the match Felipe Anderson, the Hammers we bold, thrilling but showed a brittle side, superior against a struggling Burnley, but not convincing.

Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell made it five matches without defeat for West Ham United as they climbed to 4th in the league on 11 points, sinking Manchester United to another defeat and piling pressure onto Solskjær, who had left key players out of his squad.
