West Ham United are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season. There’s no question about it.

The Hammers started the season aiming to break into the top 8 or the top six, but the London club are struggling in the Premier League at the moment.

West Ham are currently third from bottom in the league table with just 10 points from 14 matches.

David Moyes’s side suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to Everton away from home at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

It was one of West Ham’s worst performances of the season so far, and former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen was not impressed.

Owen has also suggested that West Ham will lose to Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Pep Guardiola’s City are going strong in the league and are the runaway leaders, and it is hard to see West Ham even score at the Etihad Stadium.

“Twelve successive Premier League wins for City after Raheem Sterling’s fourth late winner of the season against Southampton midweek and this City side have shown in the last week that they can win, if not ugly, but when not at their brilliant best,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

“West Ham were dreadful in the first 45 minutes against Everton midweek and it looks as if David Moyes faces another relegation battle on his hands this season.”
