From our best stats of the season against Burnley to not our worse but taking into account the opposition then stats lacking attacking prowess.

When comparing our stats to last weeks Burnley game.

The percentage of passes forward, back and square are very similar

The difference this week is where on the pitch the passes were being made.

Against Burnley we attempted 62% of our passes in the defence or middle third of the pitch and 38% in the attacking third.

Against Huddersfield we attempted 76% of our passes in the defence of middle third and 24% in the attacking third

West Ham fan for as long as I can remember. I was flukey enough to watch The Irons beat Bury 10-0 in my first ever game . . . True to form, West Ham then went out and signed their central defender 😬
