West Ham United manager David Moyes will have been pleased with the way his team have started the season.

Too close to the relegation zone for comfort last time round, the Hammers have enjoyed a solid start to the new campaign. They sit in the top half of the table, having enjoyed impressive wins over the likes of Wolves and Leicester, while securing draws with Spurs and Manchester City.

Making Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek's loan move from Slavia Prague into a £15 million ($20m) permanent one looks a sensible one, while the Hammers have also been able to get £100,000-a-week Jack Wilshere off their books after an injury-ravaged two seasons where the boyhood West Ham fan managed just 16 league appearances.

Striker Felipe Anderson, their £36m former record signing from Lazio, has been farmed out on loan to Porto after managing just 10 goals in 63 Premier League games.

Sebastian Haller, who replaced Anderson as their record buy after his £45m move from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019, is also West Ham's biggest-earner, edging Ukrainian forward Andriy Yarmolenko out of top spot.
