Jamie Redknapp believes West Ham have created a new ‘problem’ for themselves after their shock victory against Chelsea, but slammed them for not playing that way “week in, week out”.
While on Sky Sports,the pundit shared that he believes the Hammers have now shown what they’re capable of and fans will expect them to continue to perform like that for rest of the season.
“The problem they have now, although it’s not a problem as such, is that they have set such a high standard today and I think ‘how can you be in this position when you can play like that?,” Redknapp wondered.
“It isn’t good enough for me, they should be playing like this week in, week out.”

Redknapp revealed he was impressed with Moyes’ side before he slammed the team for only having 10 points ahead of the game against Chelsea with the squad they have.

West Ham are aiming to move out of the relegation zone on Wednesday when they host Arsenal at the London Stadium.
