West Ham United’s inability to find the back of the net poses real problems this season.
A 1-0 loss to Everton means David Moyes’ side will enter the international break in the relegation zone after picking up just one win so far this season.
Worse than that is the fact that the Hammers only found the net three times.
While Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen have been among the most dangerous attacking players in the Premier League in recent years, the goals have certainly dried up in east London.
In fact, the drought is so bad that eight top-flight stars have scored more goals individually than West Ham have collectively.

With West Ham bringing in several new faces this summer, many will look to the new additions as the reason the club struggled to regain their form from last season.
But according to Moyes, it’s his senior stars who need to step in.
Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “We came into the game knowing we needed a win.

“We had a good win in Europe in the middle of the week and we hoped we could back it up, but in terms of technical ability in the first half we made so many mistakes and that made it difficult to punish Everton at different times. .
“We bring in new players and it can also be difficult when trying to find the right balance and how they know how we play, but I have to say our players who are here have to perform as well.
“I will always take responsibility for that and I will do it today as well as I do every game.
“The players have to show a little more. We’ve seen how good these players are at West Ham and the qualities they possess, but if we’re being honest, we probably don’t see those heights being reached so far.
