After nine matches in the Premier League, West Ham has taken everyone by surprise. With a current 4th place position in the Premier League table, West Ham is now one of London’s biggest clubs. Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are displaying average performances.
Because of this, the Hammers are currently more prominent title contenders. Ex-Aston Villa player, Gabriel Agbonlahor, voices his opinion on talkSPORT about West Ham’s form this season.
“Apart from Chelsea, West Ham are the biggest club in London. They’ve overtook Arsenal, they’ve overtook Spurs, Brentford, Watford.”
West Ham is currently in a spot to compete for the Champions League next season. This is unusual, so it will cause problems for the other more prominent teams in England. Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are all dropping in the Premier League table. The London clubs must start improving if they want that top-4. As a result, there is a chance that we then see West Ham in the Champions League next season.
Premier League clubs are only heading into their tenth matchday. It is still too early to predict who will finish in the top-4. With West Ham’s current form, Gabriel Agbonlahor discusses how it’s the perfect time to invest in the club.
“If I was a billionaire, I’d be thinking the clubs in the perfect place, great squad of players, great manager at the moment, looking like a team that’s going to keep getting into European places.”Gabriel Agbonlahor
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are off to a shaky start, thus making way for West Ham. Potential investment from Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky might be the key to this season. Subsequently, West Ham could have a bright future ahead. A particular investment could yield a new status in London for the Hammers. Seeing West Ham finish in the top 4 would be a big success. This will cause disappointments for the bigger soccer clubs because they demand more. As a result, clubs used to making the Champions League will have to start accepting that West Ham is serious competition.
