West Ham United's points tally this season is nearly 25 per cent down on last season's haul at the same stage of the campaign.
After 27 games in the 2016/17 season, in which West Ham finished 7th in the Premier Legaue and qualified for Europe, Slaven Bilic's side had reached 43 points - TEN more than the 33 accrued so far this season.
And you have to go back to the 2013/14 campaign - United's second season back in the top flight under Sam Allardyce following a brief spell in the Championship - to discover a lower total after 27 games (31 points).
Meanwhile the lowest points total a West Ham team has managed at the same stage in a Premier League season is just 20 - as registered in 2006/07 before Alan Curbishley's side staged a miraculous recovery to avoid relegation.
Here's how West Ham have fared in the last ten seasons after 27 games (38-match campaigns only considered)...
2015/16: 43pts (finished 7th)
2014/15: 39pts (finished 12th)
2013/14: 31pts (finished 13th)
2012/13: 30pts (finished 10th)
2010/11: 25pts (finished 20th)
2009/10: 27pts (finished 17th)
2008/09: 36pts (finished 9th)
2007/08: 40pts (finished 10th)
2006/07: 20pts (finished 15th)
