West Ham United have enjoyed a rich vein of form in recent weeks following four successive wins in the Premier League against Newcastle United, Cardiff City, Crystal Palace and Fulham respectively. One of the major reasons for their recent change in fortunes have been their excellent productivity up top.
West Ham Flying High In The Premier League Right Now
The Hammers have scored 11 goals in their past four league outings mainly due to the incredible form of Felipe Anderson, Javier Hernandez and Robert Snodgrass. The Scottish winger has mostly been very impressive down the right flank and has scored two goals while grabbing three assists in his last four league starts for the East London outfit.
Snodgrass’ Impressive Form This Season
He has grabbed the opportunity to play in Manuel Pellegrini’s starting XI on a weekly basis and is now turning out to be a real revelation up top in the absence of the injured, Andriy Yarmolenko who plays in the same position as Snodgrass.
At the age of 31, it would be an outstanding achievement for the Scotsman if he can carry on with his purple patch and help the Hammers claim a top 7 finish this season.
Should Pellegrini Make Him A Permanent Starter At East London?
Snodgrass has a habit of scoring and setting up goals down the right flank, often cutting in on his stronger left-foot to put in some dangerous crosses into the opposition box. If he can somehow maintain his current form, there is no doubt that Pellegrini will make him a regular starter at the London Stadium.
His creativity and goal-threat from midfield has been invaluable for the Hammers as they have now climbed up to the 9th position in the league standings which is just two points behind 6th placed Manchester United.
The Glasgow born veteran has a lot of experience in the English top-flight, so he shouldn’t be fazed by the calibre of opponents he faces every week. Snodgrass has made a total of 19 appearances for West Ham this season, scoring four goals while creating seven assists in all competitions. It’s high time for the Scotsman to get some recognition for all the hard work he has put in both on and off the pitch.
