Last Season's Performance

The 2022/23 season will go down as one of the best in West Ham's history, as they ended the campaign by winning the Europa Conference League - their first major trophy for 43 years and first European title since 1965.

The celebrations after that 2-1 success over Fiorentina in Prague will live long in the memory, but it is easy to forget that the Hammers' European exploits came at a cost, as they spent much of the league season fighting against relegation.

After finishing sixth and seventh in the previous two campaigns, a relegation battle had been the last thing the Hammers supporters would have been expecting and the pressure was ramped up on boss David Moyes as a result.

Had it not been for their impressive run in Europe, Moyes may well have lost his job, although the Scot did pop up with some important victories at various stages of the season, including notable wins over relegation rivals Everton, Nottingham Forest and Southampton.

In the end, West Ham finished 14th in the standings, a relatively comfortable six points clear of the relegation zone, but Moyes and Co will be determined to ensure there is a much greater distance between themselves and the bottom three this time around.

This Season's Prospects

There is no doubting West Ham's Premier League form suffered last season as a result of their exploits in Europe and the main objective for 2023/24 will be to enjoy an improved domestic campaign.

However, the Hammers will have to achieve that without influential captain Declan Rice, who was sold to Arsenal for a fee that could reportedly rise to £105million with add-ons.

David Moyes wrote his name into club folklore with last season's Europa Conference League success, as he became the first Hammers manager since John Lyall in 1980 to lead the team to a major piece of silverware.

Last season's Conference League victory helped ensure Moyes has remained at the helm for the 2023/24 campaign, with the experienced Glaswegian having now taken charge of over 650 matches in the Premier League.

Filling the void left by Rice's departure will be a tough ask for West Ham but they have recruited adequately, acquiring the likes of Mohammed Kudus and Edson Alvarez with the funds that Rice's transfer raised.

Competing for a top six berth at the halfway point of the campaign after beating Manchester United and Arsenal, Moyes' side endured a dismal six-game winless run after the New Year and were also knocked out of the FA Cup by Bristol City.

The Hammers have been inconsistent in the second half of the Premier League campaign, and now face a fight to ensure they finish in the top half of the table.
