West Ham United have made a strong start to the 2015-16 Premier League season.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp has highlighted in The Daily Mail the big difference in West Ham United this season.

“The big difference this time is the away games,” the former Tottenham star wrote in The Daily Mail.

“They have the best away record in the league and have 13 points from a very tough set of games — in the same fixtures last year they had just four. I like what Bilic has done and he won't want to let it slip.”

West Ham are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from nine matches, just four points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Hammers have been playing well this campaign and also have a terrific away record. Slaven Bilic’s side have picked up as many as 13 points out of possible 15 on the road.

West Ham do need to do better at home than they have done so far, but hopefully things will change at the Boleyn Ground in the coming weeks.

The Hammers will take on Chelsea at home in the Premier League on Saturday. It will not be an easy match to win, but picking up all three points against the defending English champions will be a huge boost to the side’s chances of a top-eight finish.
