On the back of a busy summer of transfer incomings because of a much anticipated good run in the Europa League that never materialised, strength in depth is something that the Hammers can boast highly.
As the likes of defender Angelo Ogbonna, Pedro Obiang and Victor Moses have made a good contribution to the team, the two summer additions that have impressed the most have obviously been Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini.
Payet, the £10m signing from French outfit from Marseille, has been a revelation for West Ham with many likening him to a certain Carlos Tevez, scoring five times with just as many assists.
Meanwhile, Lanzini arrived from UAE club Al Jaziri with every Hammers fan saying ‘who is this kid?’ However, everyone knows who he is now, showing off incredible flair and work ethic as well as notching four goals in the process.
Elsewhere, Mark Noble has handled himself in reasonable fashion after being made captain at the start of the season, despite in recent weeks coming under criticism for the first time in his career.
Current Hammer of the Year Aaron Cresswell has again performed solidly (take note Roy Hodgson), Mauro Zarate looks like he has resurrected his career at Upton Park while Winston Reid has been immense as ever.
