Sam Allardyce will feel pretty smug when he sees this West Ham stat

All(ardyce) or nothing

Sam Allardyce is now in charge of Sunderland so we doubt he has too much time to be looking at the results of his (many) former clubs.

Allardyce was replaced by Slaven Bilic at West Ham in the summer, and the Hammers got off to an incredible start to the season, recording away wins at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

But their attempt to record a fourth major win on the road came to a shuddering halt on Sunday afternoon as they lost 4-1 to Tottenham.

And the result means that after the opening 13 games of this season, despite all those big wins away from home, and the so-called improved style under the Croat, the Londoners have the exact same amount of point as last season under Big Sam.
