West Ham United completed our pre-season programme ahead of the 2022/23 season with a 0-0 draw at French Ligue 1 side Lens on Saturday evening.
Jarrod Bowen was inches away from pinching a winner a minute from the end when he flicked a Conor Coventry cross against the crossbar, but David Moyes’ men had to be content with a share of the spoils from a tightly-contested game in northern France.
The hosts had earlier hit the bar themselves, as Salis Abdul cracked a long-ranger against the frame of Alphonse Areola’s goal, although neither Areola nor Łukasz Fabiański, who kept goal in the first half, would be beaten.
The Hammers will take our clean sheet into next weekend’s Premier League opener against Manchester City, returning home after another valuable test against continental opposition.
