West Ham United’s Five Biggest Games of 2023/24 & How to Buy Tickets

The 2023/24 football season is well underway but so far we’ve seen only a fraction of what is billed to be another ground-breaking season.

West Ham United collected three wins and a draw from their opening four league outings, largely defying the slow start which many had anticipated for the east London club.

The Hammers’ first home game of the season saw them record a stunning 3-1 victory over Chelsea. Prior to kick-off at London Stadium, the venue was rocking as the UEFA Conference League trophy was presented in front of the club’s match-going supporters.

As it turned out, the pre-match atmosphere was just a drop in the ocean compared to the euphoria after Lucas Paqueta converted a stoppage-time penalty to seal a famous win over the Blues.

We take a closer look at the five biggest home games remaining for West Ham United in 2023/24.

1. West Ham vs Manchester City – 16th September 2023

Following the first international break of the domestic season, the Irons are due to host their second home game of the league campaign as Manchester City head for the capital.

The Premier League holders got their title defence off to the perfect start, claiming maximum points from their opening four games of the season. The Sky Blues scored 11 goals in that time, including five against Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

When they come together, West Ham and Man City will be two of six teams yet to taste defeat in the Premier League. Ahead of this fixture, the Irons trail their visitors by only 2 points.

In Pep Guardiola’s first five trips to West Ham, his Man City side scored a combined 22 goals. The Hammers scored just a single goal across those five meetings at home to the Citizens.

More recently, contests between these teams have been slightly less one-sided. West Ham held Man City to a stalemate at London Stadium in each of the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons.

This fixture took place on the opening day of the 2022/23 campaign. Erling Haaland was twice on target on what was his competitive debut for Man City.

2. West Ham vs Manchester United – 23rd December 2023

This clash, provisionally scheduled for the weekend before Christmas, will likely be a cracking affair.

By the time these teams convene at London Stadium, they’d have each been put through a gruelling European group campaign.

As holders of the Conference League, West Ham qualified for the Europa League group stages. Manchester United, meanwhile, are back playing Champions League football after missing out on UEFA’s premier club competition in 2022/23.

This fixture was the last-ever professional match played at Upton Park before West Ham moved to London Stadium in 2016. Winston Reid scored the winning goal in a famous 3-2 win for the Irons.

West Ham were the winners of this fixture in September 2018, and again 12 months later. In 2022/23, Said Benrahma scored the decisive goal for the hosts to once again take victory over the Red Devils.

3. West Ham vs Arsenal – 10th February 2024

Into the backend of the season, there will still be many exciting matches at London Stadium to look forward to. The visit of Arsenal is usually a highly-anticipated clash and there ought to be a high demand for attendance to this London derby.

Following a respectable title challenge in 2022/23, the north Londoners will be looking to go one step further this time around. The Gunners made a positive start to the new season, picking up 10 points from a possible 12.

Only time will tell if Arsenal will manage to go all the way and lift the Premier League trophy for the first time since 2004.

In recent years, London Stadium has been a particularly happy hunting ground for the Gunners. From the start of the 2007/08 season until the end of 2022/23, West Ham beat Arsenal just once at home – and twice overall in 30 league meetings.

In 2019, Declan Rice was the solitary goalscorer in this fixture. Rice, who has since gone on to sign at the Emirates Stadium, netted early in the second half to secure a rare win for the Hammers over their city rivals.

In April 2023, West Ham overturned a two-goal deficit and snatched a point from Mikel Arteta’s side. The Gunners scored twice inside the opening 10 minutes but Benrahma and Jarrod Bowen responded with a goal apiece, ultimately derailing Arsenal’s title hopes.

4. West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspur – 2nd April 2024

Heading towards the business end of the season, this thrilling battle of London will be a major attraction across the city and beyond.

These teams each endured impressive starts in the league. At the time of the season’s first international break, West Ham and Tottenham were tied on 10 points each with three victories from their opening four matches.

Spurs are without European commitments in 2023/24 and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the second round. With fewer games than most teams around them, the Lilywhites will aim to maximise the potential of their league campaign.

This fixture has produced a mixed bag of results recently. In late 2019, Spurs ran out winners in a five-goal thriller at London Stadium; Heung-min Son and Harry Kane were on the scoresheet for the visitors.

West Ham responded by beating Spurs in back-to-back seasons, 2020/21 and 2021/22. Michail Antonio found the net in both matches, which ended 2-1 and 1-0 in favour of the home side.

5. West Ham vs Liverpool – 27th April 2024

This clash between the Hammers and the Reds is pencilled in for the latter stages of the 2023/24 campaign.

These teams are each taking part in the Europa League group stages though, of course, it remains to be seen whether either (or both) will still be involved in Europe come the time of this significant Premier League fixture.

West Ham haven’t enjoyed all too many victories over Liverpool in recent years. The east London club moved to its new stadium in 2016, but didn’t record a home win against the Merseysiders for another five years.

In 2015/16, West Ham’s final season at Upton Park, the Irons twice beat Jürgen Klopp’s team. A 2-0 league win was followed by a 2-1 success in the FA Cup. Michail Antonio was amongst the goals on both occasions.
