How to get Ipswich v West Ham Live Stream

The two sides have often met in pre-season in recent years, perhaps due to the ease of travel and guarantee of a firm but fair test for both sides.

West Ham won the last meeting between the sides 2-1 in July 2018, with Felipe Anderson and Marco Arnautovic on the scoresheet for the Hammers.

Much like the world around them, plenty has changed for both sides since then. West Ham have David Moyes back in charge, as well as a whole host of new players at his disposal, with Ipswich sliding to the third-tier of English football for the first time since the 1950’s at the end of that 2018-19 campaign under Paul Lambert.

Lambert’s side were beaten 3-0 by Tottenham in a friendly on Saturday, but the Scot remained upbeat about his side’s performance.

“We started the game really well, really well, we looked really good, we played some good football and their opening goal is from a mistake,” Lambert told reporters after the defeat.

“But I am really delighted that we played some really good football, really happy with how the guys went about it and the great thing is if the lads can learn from the speed of the ball and take that into our own game then we will be better for it.”

For a side aiming for promotion from League One, conceding two early goals to a world-class player like Son Heung-Min is certainly no disgrace.

However, Ipswich will need to learn from their mistakes in possession otherwise they’ll be punished once more.

What could count in the Tractor Boys’ favour, though, is that this is West Ham’s first pre-season friendly after Moyes rewarded his side’s impressive survival with an extended break.

Moreover, the Hammers are set to play concurrently at Wycombe Wanderers, meaning their squad will be split in half.

Given Wycombe are now a level above Ipswich after their play-off final win against Oxford at Wembley last month, Ipswich may well end up facing the weaker of the two XI’s.
