25 per cent off!

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)...

Slaven Bilic
2016/17: 33pts
2015/16: 43pts (finished 7th)

Sam Allardyce
2014/15: 39pts (finished 12th)
2013/14: 31pts (finished 13th)
2012/13: 30pts (finished 10th)

Avram Grant
2010/11: 25pts (finished 20th)

Gianfranco Zola
2009/10: 27pts (finished 17th)
2008/09: 36pts (finished 9th)

Alan Curbishley
2007/08: 40pts (finished 10th)
2006/07: 20pts (finished 15th)
