EPL: How West Ham United Are Gradually Becoming The Next Biggest Club In London After Chelsea

Westham United are currently the most talked about club in England following their heroics last night. The Hammers did what the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United & even Manchester City could not do, by handing Liverpool a taste of their own medicine.

Playing at the London Stadium, West Ham continued with their fine form, with David Moyes outplaying and outclassing Jurgen Klopp to hand Liverpool a first defeat in all competitions. Goals from Fonals, Kurt Zouma, and an own goal from Allison Becker did the job for the East London club.

This victory now puts West Ham in a beautiful position on the league table. The Hammers currently sit in the third position, above the likes of Manchester United, Leicester City and even fellow London teams Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

West Ham's current form and rise isn't just mere luck or a fluke. They have been a team on the rise under David Moyes and can brag about being the best club in London after Chelsea based on current form and recent achievement.

They are the only club to have beaten Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, Leicester City and Liverpool this season after just 11 match-days.

Last season, they also finished above Tottenham and Arsenal, the other popular London clubs to pick a ticket to the Europa League. Even in Europe, they have been a force, not letting their inexperience in European competitions have the better of them, topping their group with 3 wins and a draw.

The most commendable thing about this West Ham side is how they've managed to work as a team to grind out results. They do not brag of an array of world-class players or individual brilliance, but a set of average players complementing each other to become the best.

If they keep up with this form, they will surely topple Arsenal and Tottenham in the rank of the biggest clubs in London.
