West Ham secured a vital point on the road yesterday against Manchester United, having taken the lead at Old Trafford, but it didn’t quite bring an end to their woeful record away from home in the Premier League.
With Swansea, Middlesbrough, Leicester and Hull around them all picking up points this weekend, West Ham’s position is still looking extremely precarious and they’re in real danger if they fail to improve their form on the road.

Losing five of their seven games on the road this season, West Ham have just four points to their name on the road and that haul is definitely not good enough if the Hammers want to continue their march to glory and remain in the top-flight.
In the next month, the Hammers travel to face Liverpool, Swansea and Leicester and need to get results in the latter two of those games, especially with the Swans and the Foxes hovering around the same position as the hapless Hammers.
