Jamie Carragher branded West Ham United a “shambles” and believes they are one of the sides likely to be relegated following the Hammers’ 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace in the Premier League at the weekend.

The Irons were all but home and dry at Selhurst Park when a sloppy Michail Antonio pass gifted the ball to the hosts, which resulted in the Eagles scoring a 97th minute equaliser.

It was a result that kept Slaven Bilic’s side 16th in the table, with West Ham just one point above Everton in the drop zone.

“There are a lot of teams down the bottom of the league you could make a case for survival. I’m struggling with West Ham,” Carragher admitted on Sky Sports show Monday Night Football.

“They’re the team I would massively worry about in terms of relegation, because it doesn’t seem like there’s much there.

“It’s a shambles. Six players ahead of the ball, again, the same situation, and there is four versus two at the back post. That is a disgrace that you find yourself in that situation. It will have felt like a defeat.

“It looks a bit of a shambles behind the scenes at times for me. It just seems like a lot of players just thrown together without any real thought.”

There was also concern from ex-Manchester United defender Gary Neville who was critical of West Ham’s attitude and work ethic.

“They make you sick to the pit of your stomach, because it’s a privilege to play football, and the idea that you jog back, you don’t run back at 2-1 up,” Neville told his colleague on the Sky Sports show.

Liverpool are next in line at the London Stadium and West Ham know that unless they pick up points against Jurgen Klopp’s men, and results elsewhere go against them, they could drop into the relegation zone.
