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.

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.

West Ham United held Chelsea to a hard-fought point at London Stadium on Sunday afternoon, ending the visitors’ 100 percent record with a resolute display. The Hammers built on last weekend’s victory at Everton by taking their first home point of the campaign – and it could have been all three with both Michail Antonio and Andriy Yarmolenko going close to breaking the deadlock. At the other end, the Hammers did exceptionally to ensure Chelsea’s 72 per cent possession did not yield a host of chances. When they did get through the defensive line, Lukasz Fabianski was there to make saves from Alvaro Morata and Ross Barkley and ensure the scoresheet would remain blank.

West Ham United supporters enjoyed a sensational night of cup football at London Stadium, as the Hammers defeated Macclesfield Town 8-0 in the Carabao Cup third round. Michail Antonio, Robert Snodgrass and Lucas Perez put West Ham in the ascendancy in the first half with a trio of well-worked finishes, but the Irons continued to press in the second. Ryan Fredericks blasted a powerful effort in on 51 minutes before Angelo Ogbonna netted his second successive goal in this competition with a header. Snodgrass then grabbed his second, and debutant Grady Diangana got in on the action, who scored the brace his fantastic performance deserved.

West Ham United could not find a way through a stubborn Brighton & Hove Albion side as their four-game unbeaten run came to an end at the Amex Stadium. Glenn Murray scored the only goal of the game 25 minutes into the contest, allowing the hosts to drop back and defend their lead – very effectively as it turned out – in the second period. West Ham dominated territory and possession, but were just unable to make that crucial pass in the final third as Brighton stood firm at the back.

A superb afternoon of football from West Ham United saw Manuel Pellegrini’s side claim an unforgettable 3-1 victory over Manchester United. Felipe Anderson put the Hammers deservedly in front on five minutes with a special finish, before Andriy Yarmolenko doubled the advantage moments before half-time, although his strike was credited as a Victor Lindelof own-goal. Marcus Rashford pulled the Red Devils back into the game but his strike did little to quell an electric atmosphere at London Stadium, and the Irons went 3-1 up thanks to Marko Arnautovic’s cool finish.

The only goal of the game came just moments before the half-time whistle as Lamela lept highest to steer his effort into the far corner. West Ham enjoyed a number of chances to score and get back into the match, with Marko Arnautovic forcing two excellent saves from Hugo Lloris, while Chicharito was able to steer a chance into the back of the net only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.

Ten-man West Ham United were cruelly denied all three points by Wilfried Ndidi’s wickedly-deflected final minute equaliser at Leicester City. The Hammers had to make do with a man light for 53 minutes of the King Power Stadium clash after Mark Noble was shown a red card for catching Ndidi with his studs in a sliding challenge. At that point the visitors led 1-0 thanks to Fabian Balbuena’s first goal in Claret & Blue, and it looked as though it was going to stay that way until the end as Manuel Pellegrini’s men defended stoutly. But they were undone right at the death and had to settle for a point to take back down the M1 with them.

Spurs went 2-0 up just ten minutes into the second period as Son again netted, rounding Adrian to finish, before substitute Lucas Perez gave the home supporters hope of a comeback with header on 71 minutes. However Fernando Llorente struck to put Tottenham 3-1 ahead and take West Ham out of the competition at the fourth round stage.

Felipe Anderson scored a brace as West Ham United twice recovered from the blow of losing a lead to defeat Burnley 4-2 at London Stadium. The Brazilian’s second half goals made it 2-1 and 3-2 to the Hammers, following an opening 45 minutes which West Ham dominated but came in level after Johann Berg Gudmundsson cancelled our Marko Arnautovic’s opener. West Ham enjoyed 63 percent possession and had 21 shots to Burnley’s six, but they feared the points would have to be shared when Chris Wood headed the visitors level again at 2-2 with just 13 minutes left. But the hosts kept going and were rewarded first with six minutes to go with Felipe Anderson’s second, before Hernandez made the game safe in injury time.

Alex Pritchard squeezed in the game’s first goal after just six minutes during a frantic opening quarter of an hour at the John Smith’s Stadium in the Premier League. But the Hammers – who had their chances throughout the fixture – fought back well and levelled the game with 16 minutes remaining when Anderson fired home from inside the box to make it 1-1.

West Ham United were unable to halt Premier League leaders Manchester City, who raced away to a 4-0 victory at London Stadium. The damage was done before the break, as Raheem Sterling scored one and set two more up for David Silva and Leroy Sane. West Ham had chances of their own and hit the post in the second half through Michail Antonio, but Manchester City were more clinical throughout and scored their fourth at the death when Sane secured his brace.

West Ham United returned to winning ways in style with a 3-0 Premier League victory at Newcastle United. The Hammers won at St James' Park for just the second time in 15 visits dating back to 1998 with a superb all-round performance. Chicharito scored a goal in either half, Felipe Anderson added a late third and the Irons produced a resilient defensive display to earn three deserved points and defeat a Newcastle team who kicked-off on a three-game winning streak of their own. Fortune began frowning on Newcastle as Hernández gave West Ham an 11th-minute lead, his goal coinciding with the late arrival of a minority of fans who had delayed their entry to the ground to precisely the same moment. The idea was to stage a “walk-in” protest to highlight the overall awfulness of Mike Ashley’s 11-year ownership but it rather backfired. As West Ham celebrated, the stragglers took their seats to a volley of boos from the majority of supporters who feared the demonstration would undermine the home performance.

A sterling second half, featuring two goals from Lucas Perez and a Michail Antonio strike, saw West Ham United claim a well-fought 3-1 victory at home to Cardiff City. Manuel Pellegrini’s Irons were the better side for most of the contest, creating excellent chances in the first half, but could have gone in at the interval a goal down, only for Lukasz Fabianski to save Joe Ralls’ penalty. Four minutes after the restart, Lucas struck his first, latching on to a Robert Snodgrass through ball to volley home. On 55 minutes, he struck again, expertly-finishing on the turn with a first-time effort. Michail Antonio ensured all three points would stay with the Hammers just after the hour, heading home, and not even a very late finish by Josh Murphy could stop West Ham claiming back-to-back Premier League wins.

West Ham United made it a three wins in a row after a stirring second half saw off Crystal Palace in a five-goal London Stadium thriller. Manuel Pellegrini’s men found themselves 1-0 down at the break thanks to James McArthur’s sixth minute strike, but they turned the game on its head in a stunning 20-minute spell after the restart. Robert Snodgrass’ excellent finish from 20 yards got them started, before a poacher’s effort from Chicharito and Felipe Anderson’s sublime curler made it 3-1. Jeffrey Schlupp gave the hosts something to think about with a header 14 minutes from the end, but the Hammers saw it out to keep their perfect December going.
