36 year-old record matched

Filed: Saturday, 8th December 2018
By: Staff Writer

West Ham have scored three goals in three consecutive Premier League wins for the first time ever.

Having followed up the 3-0 win at Newcastle win a 3-1 defeat of Cardiff and today's 3-2 victory against Crystal Palace, Manuel Pellegrini's side have matched a record last achieved some 36 years previously.

For you have to go all the way back to September and October 1982 to discover the last occasion on which West Ham, managed at the time by John Lyall, last achieved the same feat.

On that occasion the sequence occurred with wins against Manchester City (4-1), Arsenal (3-2) and Liverpool (3-1) - a run that was sandwiched by a 2-1 win against West Brom and a 3-0 defeat at Southampton.

Today's defeat was also the first time since December 2016 that West Ham have won three consecutive top flight fixtures.
