West Ham United 4-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers, 27 September 2020
The Hammers tasted defeat in both of their opening two Premier League fixtures, and had to go into this contest without David Moyes on the touchline after he returned a positive COVID-19 test, but they overcame those obstacles in style. Jarrod Bowen scored twice, Tomáš Souček forced an own goal off Raúl Jiménez and Sébastien Haller completed the scoring as the Hammers got their season off and running.
Leicester City 0-3 West Ham United, 4 October 2020
Just a week later, the Hammers were at it again as they put Leicester City to the sword at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes had put five past Manchester City in their previous game, but they were brought back down to earth with a heavy bump. Michail Antonio’s first half header got the scoring started, before Pablo Fornals’ wonderful piece of control from Aaron Cresswell’s ball forward set him clear to make it 2-0. Jarrod Bowen added a late third as West Ham laid down a real marker of intent.
Leeds United 1-2 West Ham United, 11 December 2020
Leeds United were making a real splash under Marcelo Bielsa on their return to top flight-football, and they threatened to derail the Hammers’ charge at Elland Road when Mateusz Klich’s early penalty gave them the lead. But this West Ham side is full of character and determination, and they turned this game on its head. Tomáš Souček levelled before the first half was out, then Angelo Ogbonna’s superb header won it for the visitors inside the final ten minutes.
West Ham United 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur, 21 February 2021
Into the New Year, and West Ham’s challenge for European football was becoming a very real one. In fact, this derby day victory over Tottenham Hotspur had them inside the top four. Michail Antonio prodded home from close range before Jesse Lingard’s fine left-footed strike made it 2-0 soon after half-time. Tottenham came back strongly and Lucas Moura pulled one back, but David Moyes’ men defended superbly to repel their attacking efforts and keep hold of the three points.
West Ham United 3-2 Leicester City, 11 April 2021
The east Londoners were the Premier League’s true entertainers in the Spring, and this game against Leicester marked the third in a row that they would move into a 3-0 lead. Jesse Lingard’s superb form continued with another double, then Jarrod Bowen fired home a third as the Hammers threatened to run riot. Kelechi Iheanacho did score a late brace as Leicester showed their fight, but that blitz inside the first hour was enough to secure an eye-catching win.
Burnley 1-2 West Ham United, 3 May 2021
With a lengthy injury list and a punishing fixture schedule threatening to take its toll, the Hammers could have headed to a rainy Turf Moor feeling sorry for themselves. Not a bit of it. Chris Wood slammed home a first half penalty to give his team the lead, but David Moyes’ men were undeterred and Michail Antonio turned the game around before the break with a well-taken brace. Chances for more came and went as the Hammers played with a real attacking fluidity, but in the end that double secured the points.
