Three things West Ham must improve on in 2017

December has turned out to be a rewarding month for Slaven Bilic and West Ham as the Hammers’ form has turned full circle with three wins and one draw.

After looking set for a relegation battle for the remainder of the season, the Hammers have now recorded three victories over relegation-threatened teams to increase the distance between themselves and the drop zone.

Ten points from the last possible twelve cannot be overstated. However, the east Londoners shouldn’t allow it to paint over the cracks and improvements must still be made with the club heading into 2017.

Everyone at London Stadium is looking upwards at the moment, but enormous frailties still exist in the team, and unless they’re amended over the coming weeks, December’s progression may prove worthless.

With just days remaining in 2016, we look at three things West Ham need to improve on during 2017 to guarantee their Premier League survival for another season.
