Andy Carroll a rare bright spot as West Ham squander first-half lead at Hull

West Ham slumped to their fourth consecutive defeat as they gave away a goal lead to lose 2-1 to Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

The Hammers were comfortably ahead thanks to an Andy Carroll goal at half-time, but Hull boss Marco Silva made a tactical switch at the break and Slaven Bilic's men failed to cope. Moving to 4-2-4 meant Hull dominated the second period and the home side deservedly won the game thanks to an 85th minute Andrea Ranocchia header. The hosts had equalised with Andrew...

West Ham face gloomy December with Arsenal next on the agenda

West Ham United slumped out of the EFL Cup at the quarterfinal stage after receiving a 4-1 mauling at the hands of Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Manchester rivalled the Hammers early goal in last weekend's league game with a Zlatan Ibrahimovic strike before two minutes were up on the clock. Even so, although the visitors were under the cosh for long periods, Slaven Bilic's men managed to get an equaliser through ex-United man Ashley Fletcher and were all square at the break.

Sadly, the defensive...

Conte, Chelsea could benefit from adding a defender in the January window

Antonio Conte's Chelsea have been flying under his new system, but Gab Marcotti explains why more changes can be expected.

Things are going swimmingly for Antonio Conte and Chelsea. Seven league wins on the bounce and being top of the table has put a spring in the step of everyone associated with the club. But football is constantly evolving and there is never any time to rest on your laurels so Conte will already be drawing up a list of potential recruits to target when the winter transfer window opens in a month's time.

One area that he might choose to reinforce could, rather ironically, concern the one that is...

England call-up has been the 'stuff that dreams are made of' - Aaron Cresswell

Aaron Cresswell's maiden England call-up has been the "stuff that dreams are made of'' following an injury-disrupted start to the season.

So impressive for West Ham since joining from Ipswich in July 2014, the 26-year-old has had to bide his time at international level due to the strength in depth of options at left-back.

Cresswell had been overlooked for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Scotland and friendly with Spain, but an injury to Danny Drinkwater led to his call-up on Monday.
