Glenn Murray shares West Ham United Premier League relegation verdict live on BBC

West Ham will not be around the Premier League relegation zone this season, according to BBC pundit Glenn Murray.

The Hammers currently occupy 11th place in the league table after losing 3-2 to Brentford on Saturday (4 November).

David Moyes’s side have won four of their 11 matches so far in the current campaign, with two draws and five losses to their name.

“I think West Ham need to translate their cup form into the Premier League,” Murray said live on BBC Sport Final Score (3.02pm, 4 October).

“But as far as I’m concerned it’s much better than where they were last season, where they were around the relegation zone. I don’t think that’s going to be the case this season.”

The Hammers started the Premier League campaign very well, and were flying high under Moyes in the early months.

But as the games have gone on, the East London club have gradually slipped down the table, much to the worry of all connected with the Hammers.

They certainly gave it a good go against the Bees, but Moyes will be very disappointed that his players lost the match having been 2-1 up.

Attackers Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen perhaps thought they had secured a fine three points for the Hammers thanks to their first-half goals.

They came after Neal Maupay put the hosts in front, with a Konstantinos Mavropanos own goal and Nathan Collins turning the game on its head to secure a thrilling win for the Bees.

Supporters of the East London club may not be too worried at this moment in time, but they will want to see their players bounce back from this current rut as soon as possible. It is now three successive league losses for the Hammers following defeats to Aston Villa and Everton.
