‘The London Stadium has turned into a circus!’ – Rival fans mock West Ham after fifth defeat in six games
The new-look West Ham United has not started the Premier League season like the last one.
After Slaven Bilic’s Hammers secured a seventh-placed finish last season, the new campaign is yet to get underway after losing five of their opening six matches.
A new logo and a new ground in the London Stadium – things just have not clicked.
Claude Puel’s Southampton were the latest team to beat United in 2016/17, with goals from Charlie Austin, Dusan Tadic and James Ward-Prowse giving them a 3-0 win.
The east Londoners spent over £40m in the summer to strengthen their squad, while keeping star player Dimitri Payet. Fans are rightfully questioning what is going wrong.
Their misery is something other fans have been enjoying. On Sunday afternoon, as Ward-Prowse completed the rout with the final goal, opposition fans took to Twitter to poke fun at West Ham.
