Five Key Matches
v Chelsea (A) on August 16
Quite the start to the campaign for the Hammers, who can lay down a marker at Stamford Bridge.
v Bournemouth (H) on August 22
West Ham's first league game at their new stadium and their need for a good start to make it a fortress.
v Watford (H) on September 11
After facing Chelsea and Manchester City in two of their first three games, the Hammers get a chance to get their season going.
v Manchester United (H) on January 3
The festive period looks comfortable for West Ham, who could gain ground when Jose Mourinho and Co. visit, based on last season.
v Tottenham Hotspur (H) on May 7
Late in the season, this could be a chance for the Hammers to close in on Europe - or have their dreams dashed.
SBS Host Lucy Zelic's Prediction: 8th
A gallant season ultimately ended with seventh spot but Slaven Bilic’s men showed they can cut it with the best. In France star Dimitri Payet, the Hammers have a world class playmaker that scores goals – wonderful goals. A place in Europe is not out of the reckoning.
