West Ham United: Fans fear the worst in relegation battle after defeat to Wolves

West Ham United: Fans fear the worst in relegation battle after defeat to Wolves - West Ham News

Many West Ham fans are fearful for their team’s Premier League future after they fell to a 0-2 defeat at home to Wolves this evening.

Earlier in the day, the Hammers watched their relegation rivals Watford and Brighton gain valuable points with late goals, and David Moyes’ team lost ground on those clubs after second half goals from Raul Jimenez and Pedro Neto consigned them to a fourth league defeat from their last five games.

West Ham managed just two shots on target across the entire game against Nuno Espirito Santo’s team and could find themselves in the relegation zone overnight if Bournemouth avoid defeat against Crystal Palace tonight. Aston Villa could also move above the Hammers if they beat Chelsea tomorrow afternoon.

Today’s defeat was the east Londoners’ eighth at home in the 2019/20 Premier League and their 17th in total in the division. Following their latest setback, many West Ham fans took to Twitter to voice their pessimism about the ensuing relegation battle. One supporter lamented that his team “are the new Sunderland”, an unflattering reference to Moyes’ former club that suffered consecutive relegations since 2017 and are primed for a third successive season in League One.

Check out some of the reaction from the Hammers faithful below:
