David Gold has a theory why West Ham’s home form isn’t good

West Ham United’s home form in the Premier League so far this season has not been good.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has written on the club’s official website that he is not worried about the team’s struggles at home.

The Hammers, who are third in the Premier League table at the moment, have picked up more points on the road than at the Boleyn Ground so far this season.

Of Slaven Bilic’s side’s tally of 13 points, just four have come at home, with many suggesting that there is a problem with how the team play at the Boleyn Ground.

Gold, though, does not seem to be too fussed about the current situation and appears to believe that things will improve in the coming weeks.

The West Ham co-owner has suggested that the team have not collected as many points as they should have at home due to individual errors.

“I don't think the home form is a long-term problem,” Gold wrote on West Ham’s official website. “We could have easily had more points on the board had we not made individual errors.

“My message to the fans is that I am sure we will do a lot better at home than what we have achieved in the opening four games. Those individual errors will disappear and with that comes confidence and success.

“We have still got 13 points from seven games which is fantastic. We have played an extra home game but that will get levelled out when we face Sunderland away and we can then have a better judgement of the league.”

West Ham are away from home this weekend, as they take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League.

The Hammers will be confident of winning the match, as they have the best away record in the Premier League so far this season.

The London outfit have won all three of their games on the road so far this campaign, conceding just one goal in the process.
