West Ham’s record against the Premier League’s top sides this season is better than that of any of the other top eight sides.

Slaven Bilic’s side have won 17 points from their 10 games against the sides currently sitting in the division’s top eight spots.

That’s more points than any of the other top eight sides have managed in league games against one another this season.

The Hammers’ total works out at an average of 1.7 a game which is the same as both Tottenham and Manchester United have managed from their nine matches. However, both of those sides have won just 15 points in total.

Arsenal and Leicester have won 16 points from 10 and 11 games against the top eight sides respectively.

They’ve won just one point from their five games against the other top four sides.

Arsenal have won 10 points from four games, Tottenham have won eight from five and Leicester eight from six.
