David Moyes admits Celtic face 'elite' Champions League truth as he sides  with Ally McCoist's Rangers theory - Daily Record

David Moyes is now fortunate to have an additional attacking option thanks to Mohammed Kudus’ late-transfer-window arrival at West Ham, according to a West Ham United statistic.

Prior to the international break, United defeated Luton Town 2-1. The Ghanaian international earned his debut in the last seconds of that game.

Many will be hoping Kudus makes his full Hammers debut against Manchester City on Saturday [16 September] assuming he returns from international duty totally healthy.

However, the emergence of an interesting statistics suggests Moyes is perhaps better off easing Kudus into the side.

According to an article from The Analyst [12 September], the nine goals scored by West Ham after four matches has been bettered only once before by the club in their Premier League history, when scoring 10 times in 2021-22.

Indeed, the Hammers’ 10 points at this stage is their joint-best ever, alongside the 1999-2000 season.

Even without a truly recognised out-and-out striker – unless Michail Antonio can now be classed as one – West Ham have still scored at an average of 2.25 goals per game.

For comparison, they scored at a rate of 1.1 goals per game across the whole of last season’s Premier League campaign.

That is not to say there is no place in the West Ham side for Kudus, of course, but rather it may be better sticking with a winning formula for now.

All going to plan, the goals will keep flowing for West Ham’s attackers in order to keep the club in the higher reaches of the division
