The Athletic’s West Ham United correspondent Roshane Thomas has swooned over the team David Moyes is putting together.

In their last three Premier League fixtures, the Hammers have picked up seven points from matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur (per Sky Sports).

All three of the clubs which the Irons have avoided defeat against in the previous three outings finished in the top seven of the Premier League during the 2019/20 season.

In the most recent of the three matches, Moyes’ side overturned a three-goal deficit in the closing stages of the game to earn a point at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

During the latest episode of The Athletic’s U Irons podcast, Thomas discussed the match against Spurs and waxed lyrical about the club’s recent form.

Who did West Ham United face in their opening fixture of the 2020/21 Premier League season?

He said: “Tottenham, they thought the game was won when they took off Heung-min Son and all the other players, they thought the game was won then.

“So, [it was] great fighting spirit from the team to come back and draw the game.

“Even before lockdown we [saw] the fighting spirit. If you remember that game against Liverpool, the 3-2 defeat, [West Ham] fought hard to come back in that game.

“Obviously it ended in defeat but that was a spirited performance. After lockdown, the win against Chelsea. This team, oh my goodness…

“Moyes is building something special here.”

TIF Thoughts on Roshane Thomas’ praise of West Ham’s team…

As can be seen in what the journalist had to say, he was full of praise for the Irons and claimed that the club’s Scottish manager is “building something special”.

Do you agree that David Moyes is building something "special" with West Ham?

No, I don't rate him

No, I don't rate him

Yes, I believe in him

However, despite the Hammers’ recent form, Moyes still has the second-worst points-per-game total (1.18) of his managerial career during his second stint at the London Stadium (per Transfermarkt).

The 57-year-old manager’s time with Sunderland is the only period during the Scotsman’s career in which he has delivered a worse total (0.72).

However, the previous three results certainly seem to bode well for the club and, hopefully, West Ham can continue that form over the duration of the season.
