West Ham fell to a 1-0 defeat at Wolves this afternoon in what was arguably our worst performance of the season so far.

We started the game brightly and looked the team more likely to open proceedings, with Jarod Bowen having the best chance in the early exchanges when he headed wide from a delightful Aaron Cresswell cross.

However, the game slipped away from West Ham as the hosts progressed with our Irons looking disorganised, and struggling to hold possession.

Half time arrived with a sigh of relief, as it was the home side looking menacing and West Ham clinging on to see in the break.

Surely a Moyes’ half time talk would get things back into shape?

But sadly, this wasn’t the case.

The second half commenced as the first ended, with Wolves looking the side more intent on taking the points.

It wasn’t long until they were finally rewarded for their dominant display, when Raul Jiminez scored in the 58th minute.

Moyes then called in the changes with Lanzini, Vlasic and Yarmolenko entering for Bowen, Benrahma and Fornals. However, these  changes proved futile.

Wolves saw out the match comfortably and delivered a deserved defeat for the Irons, who were second best in every department today.

A bad day at the office, which will need to be corrected fast as Manchester City away looms.
