West Ham must keep the focus on the football amidst fan trouble

West Ham United coach Slaven Bilic has defended Antonio Conte's touchline antics from Chelsea's win over Manchester United.

On Wednesday night, West Ham United face their biggest cup hurdle so far at the London Stadium. Visitors Chelsea are the opponents in the EFL Cup, a keenly anticipated fixture that will give the Hammers their first taste of domestic evening football in Stratford.

With West Ham's improved form, the game looks to be more of a contest than it might have seemed when the draw was made. In fact though, league form has never been a barrier to the Hammers' cup exploits, and most fans will have frustrating...

Dimitri Payet stars for West Ham as Winston Reid grabs a late winner

Winston Reid netted the game-winner for West Ham in stoppage time for the 1-0 victory over Sunderland.
Winston Reid netted the game-winner for West Ham in stoppage time for the 1-0 victory over Sunderland.
Slaven Bilic feels his West Ham club fully earned their dramatic 1-0 win against Sunderland.

A 94th minute goal in a 1-0 victory was enough to give West Ham a fortunate three points against a Sunderland side who fought back well in an entertaining game.

Early on, the match was all Hammers, and it seemed just a matter of time before the home side scored. After Dimitri Payet struck the post, however, David Moyes' team started to get a grip, and Adrian and his defence had to be wary of Jermain Defoe.

With some poor crossing from wide positions, West Ham couldn't breach the Sunderland defence,...

Jose Mourinho returns to face Chelsea, Manchester City's Southampton test

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop tries his hand at Premier League predictor, but does he expect a stalemate at the Bridge?

Jose Mourinho returns to former club Chelsea with Manchester United on Sunday having struggled to break down Liverpool in the 0-0 draw at Anfield, but seeing his side score four against Feyenoord.

Arsenal are flying high after their demolition of Ludogorets, which was their seventh win in a row in all competitions, and will hope add to that streak against struggling Middlesbrough, while leaders Manchester City take on Southampton hoping to get back on track after their humbling at Barcelona.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic must build on Palace win against Sunderland

West Ham's first league win since August delights Slaven Bilic, but he warns they must not relent in a tough league.

What a difference a game makes.

Before last week's trip to Selhurst Park to play a confident Crystal Palace, some respected West Ham United watchers were insisting another loss and Slaven Bilic's position would be untenable. After the game however, opinions have shifted wildly.

So assured had been the Hammers defence in their solid 1-0 win -- even when the team went down to 10 men following Aaron Creswell's ridiculous sending off -- the general feeling was a tough corner had been turned.

In real...

Lanzini scores in superb fashion, Reid back to dominant best in Hammers win

Ten-man West Ham held off Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park to pick up a valuable 0-1 win.
West Ham's first league win since August delights Slaven Bilic, but he warns they must not relent in a tough league.

West Ham collected all three points in an impressive display against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The 1-0 win moves the Hammers out of the bottom three but, more importantly, the clean sheet obtained seems to indicate that the team's recent defensive nightmares may be -- if not completely solved -- at least under control.

Manuel Lanzini's 19th-minute opener was no more than the team deserved, although they had to thank a poor penalty attempt by Christian Benteke just before half-time to help...

West Ham look to reboot in London derby against Crystal Palace

The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets about Chile, Dimitri Payet and their ESPN FC five-a-side squad.

West Ham return to league action after the international break with a clearly defined objective. The team need to start winning matches -- and soon.

Although many football fans find the enforced international breaks a distraction, it's undoubtedly a fact that the Premier League season is now defined by the segments resulting from the demands of the international football timetable. Following a poor early season and a series of awful defensive displays, the Hammers' latest season restart is surely...
