Man City, Liverpool, Southampton, Arsenal, Wolves, Spurs - West Ham's next six fixtures are some of the toughest you could have picked out wen you're in a battle against relegation.

But that is what faces the Hammers and David Moyes over the next six weeks as they fight against the drop and there is the looming feeling that things will get an awful lot worse before they get better.

Moyes needs goals in his side and looking at the stats, it is rather obvious what he needs to do - get Haller involved more instead of lumping it long, and play Jarrod Bowen.

Below is West Ham's shot map so far under David Moyes since he took over in 2019: Now compare that to what the team was doing when Manuel Pellegrini was at the helm for the first four months of the campaign, where the sample size is obviously bigger.

The return of Felipe Anderson from injury, potentially against Manchester City next week, could well solve that problem anyway as it would force Bowen to play a bit further up the field as a more secondary striker.

Also, the £22m recruit of Jarrod Bowen from Hull City on transfer deadline day - a risk and a punt on a player who hasn't played in the Premier League yet but has tore up the Championship for the best part of three seasons.

Under Moyes, the Hammers are resorting to less xG (yellow) as they struggle to get the ball in the box and create chances for Sebastien Haller, who has scored six goals this season but has massively struggled under Moyes.
