The West Ham striker was advised he should be worried,after signing another 23 years old striker.

At West Ham United right now, things aren’t completely different, but the signing of  and other players during the summer transfer window has really stirred things up.

Nothing raises everyone’s level like some high-caliber acquisitions, as players who may have been coasting before start to worry about earning a spot in the starting XI.

Despite losing their two matches against Liverpool and Man City, David Moyes and his Hammers squad can be pleased with the way in which they’ve started the 2023/24 campaign.

The east Londoners are in seventh place after six games, although they are only five points behind third-place Brighton and Hove Albion, led by Roberto De Zerbi.

At the London Stadium, Sheffield United will play next. The Blades are coming off an 8-0 beating over Newcastle.

By coincidence, they play the Magpies the following week, and in the wake of Newcastle’s anticipated epic Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain, the schedule may be favoring West Ham.

It will be intriguing to observe who Moyes starts over the next few games because, according to journalist Paul Brown, one specific Hammers star should be watching him closely.

“I believe that you should really be encouraged if you are Said Benrahma. It should demonstrate to you that in order to remain on this team, you will need to establish some consistency and deliver each week. And in my opinion, that increases standards everywhere,” he told Give Me Sport.


“I think it lifts everyone when you bring in players of quality and the squad has a bit more depth now than it did last season,” said Benrahma of the fact that players like Mohamed Kudus are joining the club.

It’s about time the standards in east London were upped, and with money still available from the sale of Declan Rice in the summer, there might be even more competition for positions in January.
