is probably the default answer to the question posed in the headline and you wouldn't be far wrong if you did say that, The vast majority of the West Ham's relegation-threatened squad (we can excuse Tomas Soucek, Jarrod Bowen and Darren Randolph) have vastly under-performed this season and especially since David Moyes took over and that has yielded just one Premier League win in 2020 and that came on New Year's Day against Bournemouth.

Sunday's postponement against Manchester City has given the Hammers some extra days off though their winter break will be shortened by a few days as that has been rearranged for February 19, next Wednesday, at the Etihad.

West Ham need to start keeping clean sheets, Angelo Ogbonna is arguably Hammer of the Year so far but can't do it all by himself with Lukasz Fabianski behind helping out.

It's not a case of stepping up as such for the £22m signing on transfer deadline day, it's more that West Ham need him to hit the ground running which puts a lot of pressure on the 23-year-old.

The winter break is well timed as he will have chance to settle further into his new surroundings, get to know his teammates more and how Moyes wants to use him.

Much like the Hammers need to be keeping clean sheets at one end, they need to be scoring more at the other.

The manager has responded to that by leaving Lanzini out of the starting line up for subsequent games and will need his creative midfielder to rediscover his best form after the break - if he plays him.
