The Hammers are 5th after 10 games played at the Christmas break.
With West Ham having at least 1 player out injured in every game so far (6 players were injured for their last game against Tottenham Hotspur), they will be over the moon with the position they are in.
The Irons were majority of the pundit’s favourites to go down, but they are closer to the Champions League positions than the relegation zone.
They have managed to score 15 goals in the opening games, which is something they have majorly improved on from last season, as they only scored 23 in the whole season.
Captain Dagny Brynjarsdóttir has really shown the WSL what she is about in her third season, sitting on 6 goals in all competitions. With her penalty conversions and her aerial threat, she will hope to continue her form after Christmas.
The Icelandic only managed 4 goals in all competitions last season.
Although there are many positives to take from their season so far, their defensive form appears weaker than needed. Conceding 18 goals in their 10 league games, they have been lucky their scoring record has been good enough to keep the points flying.
It’s not just the league The Hammers will be happy about, currently their cup form has been
superior, with 2 wins in 2, which sits them at the top of their group. After beating both Birmingham Ladies and London City Lionesses.
With the likes of Lucy Parker, Lisa Evans and Izzy Atkinson all hoping to be fully fit for the restart, West Ham will really be up for the fight for those Champions League spots. They are currently 4 points off.
Will Paul Konchesky’s side finish in the top 4?
The first game after the restart will be a big one, Manchester City at home, Sunday 21th January at 6:45pm.
