TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY

 

For the first time in history, the Premier League transfer window will shut before the new season begins, preventing clubs from making any emergency signings if they make a sluggish start to the season, after Premier League clubs voted 17-3 in favour of closing the transfer window early giving them three weeks fewer than what they are used to in the summer window.

 

Premier League and Sky Bet EFL clubs have until 5pm on Thursday, August 9 to sign players. But should top-flight clubs submit a deal sheet by 5pm, they will have until 7pm to complete the deal.

 

'Deal Sheet'

If a club agrees a deal at the last minute, it might not be easy to get all the paperwork completed by the deadline. The deal sheet allows a club to confirm a deal has been reached and provides them with additional time to submit the remaining documentation.

West Ham United named five of their nine summer signings in the starting line-up at Anfield, with Felipe Anderson involved from the off up front and Lukasz Fabianski getting the nod in goal, but the Hammers suffered a 4-0 defeat at Liverpool in their 2018/19 Premier League opener. Manuel Pellegrini's side were unable to stop a potent Liverpool attacking force, who led 2-0 at the break thanks to Mo Salah’s opener and Sadio Mane’s tap-in on the stroke of half-time. West Ham went close through Marko Arnautovic in the opening period, but Liverpool were in command and made their dominance count with two further strikes after half-time, Mane notching again before Daniel Sturridge completed the scoring.

Two quick-fire second half goals for AFC Bournemouth saw West Ham United fall to a 2-1 defeat at London Stadium. The Irons had taken the lead in their first home match of the 2018/19 campaign, after Hernandez was brought down in the penalty area. Marko Arnautovic stepped up, and confidentially put West Ham 1-0 from the spot.  However, the Cherries bounced back into the game on 60 minutes, as Callum Wilson got past the Hammers back-line to slot home. And Eddie Howes’ team took the lead just a few minutes later, after Steve Cook climbed highest to head Bournemouth in front.

A frustrating afternoon for West Ham United saw Manuel Pellegrini’s side fall to a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium. The Hammers took the lead thanks to an excellent goal from Marko Arnautovic; something the away side deserved following some brilliant play. However, Arsenal were level just four minutes later thanks to Nacho Monreal’s finish. The Irons continued to press in the second period but fell behind on 70 minutes as Alexandre Lacazette’s strike went in off defender Issa Diop. And a final blow was inflicted in the closing moments as Danny Welbeck netted from close range.

West Ham United came from behind to defeat AFC Wimbledon with three second half goals to book their place in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Hammers had to do things the hard way after falling behind to Joe Pigott’s early header, but the League One side’s hopes were harmed by Rod McDonald’s 19th minute dismissal. Wimbledon shocked the Hammers by taking a second minute lead through Pigott, who climbed high to meet Mitch Pinnock’s left-wing corner with an unstoppable header. West Ham took their time before making their dominance count, eventually levelling just past the hour thanks to Issa Diop’s thunderbolt. Angelo Ogbonna headed the second seven minutes from time, before Chicharito wrapped it up with a third at the death.

West Ham United suffered a late heartbreak as a 90+3-minute goal from Adama Traore saw the Irons lose 1-0 to Wolverhampton Wanderers. An even contest saw both sides enjoy decent chances, with West Ham denied twice exceptionally by Rui Patricio. Michail Antonio had a header, which looked destined for the top corner, clawed away, before Marko Arnautovic’s powerful shot in a one-on-one position was denied by the goalkeeper’s face. As the final minute of the game was being played, Wolves stole possession in the midfield and broke, releasing Adama Traore to fire home.

18_09_16 Everton v. WHU

Andriy Yarmolenko’s double helped fire West Ham United to their first three points of the season at Everton. Yarmolenko struck twice before the break to put the Hammers in command at Goodison Park, and although Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back before the break, Manuel Pellegrini’s side held their nerve. Marko Arnautovic scored his third goal of the season just past the hour to restore the visitors’ two-goal advantage and seal a happy awayday for the 3,000 travelling Hammers.
