West Ham have been climbing the table, in what is an unexpected season so far. Dagny Brynjarsdottir’s contribution is arguably the reason behind the Hammers success.
Scoring 3 goals in her opening 5 WSL games, including an important one in the 94th minute, has kept their cup run alive. The skipper has already equalled last season’s goal scoring record and is now joint second in the WSL top scorers table, currently playing centre midfield.
New manager, Paul Konchesky, has already changed fans perspectives, with wins over in form Everton and Aston Villa.
They are now currently sitting 5th.
Their main issue, that stared from last season is the amount of goals they conceded which this season is already 9. The third worst in the league, with only Leicester and Reading below them. Currently the bottom two in the league. Also they have conceded 3 penalties where all could have been avoided.
If West Ham can control their defensive issues, and with defenders like Katie Longhurst and Lucy Parker coming back from injury in the next coming games, they could be the outsider for the Champions League spots.
Dagny’s side are up next against Arsenal at Meadow Park, who sit top after 4 wins in 4, having scored 11. With defensive doubts for the Gunners, will the Irons be able to end Jonas Eidevall’s winning streak.
