It has the look of a season in which a relegation battle will play a major part for Nottingham Forest, who naturally dream of extending their stay in the Premier League.
West Ham managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Premier League. On top of winning once they also drew zero as well as losing five, while scoring ten time and letting in six.
West Ham go into the season with the clear aim of a top half finish, and if they can build some momentum early on, perhaps even throw their hat in the ring for a place in Europe.
