For the first time in what seems like an eternity, West Ham have managed to start the Premier League season rather well.

West Ham’s frailties are at the back, going forward they are okay.



Bent has a point that the West Ham defence have been lacking this season, but to call out Diop for this is a harsh opinion to have without looking in-depth into the problem.



I’d say Diop.” Although there is no question that West Ham have been poor defensively this season, conceding the most goals out of any side in the Premier League top-10 so far, to signal out Diop, who is valued on Transfermarkt at £31.5m, for this problem is a rash opinion from Bent.

The 23-year-old centre-back has averaged more interceptions per match than both Fredericks and Ogbonna with 1.8 compared to 1 and 0.7, as well as win more offsides than the West Ham duo with 1 per game compared to 0.3 and 0.

Diop has also averaged the same number of fouls (1) and blocks (1) per game as left-back Masuaku, who has arguably been one of West Ham’s standout performers this season.

Yet not everybody has been convinced by West Ham’s good start to life in the league, namely Darren Bent, who speaking to Football Insider claimed that the Hammers were still in need of improving, particularly in the defence, and the former England international signalled out Issa Diop for the east London’s side poor defensive record this season.
