Robbie Savage makes bold Premier League prediction

Robbie Savage believes West Ham United will avoid relegation from the Premier League this season because of David Moyes’ “experience and know-how”, as he predicted in his final table for The Mirror.

The Hammers have struggled to get going so far this season and remain a solitary point above the relegation zone before returning to action against Arsenal on Boxing Day.

Moyes’ side lost their opening three games of the season and have not fully recovered since, despite a summer that included the signings of Lucas Paqueta, Gianluca Scamacca and Thilo Kehrer.

And according to BT Sport pundit Savage, the Scottish manager’s calm head will be key as he predicts the Hammers will finish the Premier League season in 14th place.

He said: “Lagging behind at the starting gate, the Hammers have been playing catch-up all season.

“However, David Moyes’ experience and knowledge will be their greatest asset, and they will do well in Europe again.”

Too much quality

West Ham simply have too much quality to be involved in a relegation slide this season, but after their poor start to the season, a 14th-place finish seems a fair assessment and a representation of the challenge that still lies ahead.

With the likes of Paqueta, Declan Rice and Jared Bowen supporting this undoubtedly talented Hammers side, Moyes has plenty of match-winners at his disposal if things get a little tricky.

Another centre-forward could be needed in the January transfer window, as the club’s two main strikers (Scamacca and Michael Antonio) have not lived up to expectations this season, and if one were to get injured, the Hammers would have a winger. light line forward.

West Ham United would probably have been predicted to finish much higher in the league table had they not made such a torrid start to the Premier League season, which included back-to-back defeats against Manchester City, Nottingham Forest and Brighton.
