Robert Snodgrass has come out and admitted that West Ham United’s defending continues to be the team’s downfall, so Manuel Pellegrini must fix the problem before it defines their season.

Does West Ham's defence need to be prioritised next summer?

Speaking to, Snodgrass didn’t sugarcoat the fact that West Ham are conceding too many goals but he’s now looking on after going back to the drawing board: The thing is we were conceding goals in pre-season as well.

It’d be a real shame for a leaky backline to diminish what promises to be a good season for West Ham though, so hopefully, it’s a resolved situation sooner rather than later.

While the Hammers’ exciting attack was scoring plenty of goals throughout pre-season, Pellegrini’s side were shipping too many and that boiled over in the weekend’s 5-0 opening day thumping from Manchester City.

The manager’s touched on it saying after the game we cannot keep conceding goals, and it’s a hard one to sit here and give an interview after 5-0, but to the best that I can.

Some would argue that it’s a personnel issue, but as the season goes on you would hope the defence grows stronger together, especially when they’re not facing the best attack in the league.
