West Ham United seem to have turned the corner in recent weeks.

Paul Merson suggested that it is clear to see that West Ham have turned the corner recently, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports.

The Hammers began their 2018/19 Premier League campaign in dismal fashion, losing their first four games, but they have steadied the ship of late, and now sit in 13th spot in the table, having taken 11 points from 11 games thus far.

 

It must be remembered that West Ham have suffered horrendous luck with injuries and have had as many as nine key players out injured recently.

Manuel Pellegrini's attacking, expansive style of football is beginning to reap rewards, however, and many fans and pundits are tipping them to go on and make a push for the top 10.

Merson spoke exclusively to Sky Sports, and suggested that it is clear to see that the Hammers have turned the corner:

"I watched West Ham demolish Burnley last week - yes Burnley got in the game a few times but they thoroughly deserved to win the match. On that display, it's clear West Ham are turning the corner. They will be too strong for Huddersfield."

West Ham take on Huddersfield Town tomorrow, and Pellegrini's men will be confident of racking up another three points.
