Since David Moyes returned to West Ham in December 2019, the club has enjoyed a pretty sensational transformation.

When he replaced Manuel Pellegrini the Hammers were battling against relegation and were showing no signs of ever achieving what the fans were promised when they were forced to move from Upton Park to London Stadium.

Fast forward to present day and West Ham are competing in the Europa League group stages after finishing 6th in the Premier League in 2020/2021 and are currently 7th in the top-flight, one point off the top four, after eight games.

It’s been a wonderful journey over the last two years and the future certainly looks bright in east London.

One of the most impressive aspects of the club’s improvement during that period has been consistency, and that was further cemented after the 1-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Angelo Ogbonna’s 74th-minute winner saw the Hammers climb into 6th after starting the day in 9th, although Tottenham’s win over Newcastle later that afternoon forced Moyes’ men to settle for 7th by the end of the afternoon.

But after climbing to sixth, even for just a few hours, it meant West Ham were back in familiar territory for a short while.

That’s because, of the 30 Premier League games David Moyes’ side have played in 2021, they’ve ended just six of them outside of the Premier League’s top-six. That record currently stands at W17, D5, L8, F54, A37.

After starting the calendar year with a 1-0 win at Goodison Park on New Year’s Day, West Ham were 10th. Three games later, the 3-2 win at Crystal Palace saw the Hammers climb in to fourth.

It then wasn’t until the 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United earlier this season that West Ham dropped out of the top-six, nine months after first entering it.

And then the weekend’s win at Everton saw a return to 6th.

West Ham’s record in 2021 has been impressive when you consider games played in all competitions, too.

That record currently stands at P36, W22, D5, L9, F64, A37.

What a year 2021 has been in West Ham’s history. Hopefully, it can continue into 2022.
