West Ham United go into the final game of the 2022/23 season having seen their Premier League form improve drastically since the turn of the year.

Taking into account results from 1 January 2023 only, the Hammers find themselves 12th in the table and just two points behind Wolves, in ninth.

With seven league wins, five draws and eight defeats in 2023, the Hammers have scored 28 goals and conceded 31 (a goal difference of -3).

And that is in stark contrast to the opening half of the campaign between August and December during which the Hammers secured just 14 points from their opening 17 matches, scoring just 13 goals while conceding 22 (-9 GD).

West Ham's seven league wins in 2023 have come against Everton (2-0), Nottingham Forest (4-0), Southampton (1-0), Fulham (1-0), Bournemouth (4-0), Manchester Utd (1-0) and Leeds Utd (3-1).

In addition David Moyes' side have also secured five wins and one draw in the Conference League which, added to the eight UECL wins in 2022 and two FA Cup victories give the Hammers a total of 26 victories in the current season.

That represents West Ham United's sixth highest numbers of victories in any one season, and the most in the Premier League era - equalling the record set last season with two games of the current campaign left to play.
