Football can be such a cruel game.
Four games into the new season and the Hammers are still without a win in the Premier League and sit, adrift, at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Against newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Hammers came so close to earning their first point of the campaign but were served a huge slice of bad luck when the visitors scored, through Adama Traore in the 93rd minute.
The Hammers had chances to take the lead and, quite probably, the win, but the best chances were spurned by Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic.
West Ham could have taken the lead early on but the impressive Rui Patricio, in the Wolves goal, foiled Felipe Anderson with a fine save.
The closest Wolves came to scoring was when Lukasz Fabianski had to be on top of his game to deny Matt Doherty.
The second half saw Patricio produce fine saves to deny Antonio and Arnauovic with the keeper putting his body on the line to pull off one save with his face.
Wolves could have scored when Raul Jimenez was resented with an opportunity, but a reprieve came when the player fell over the ball.
But, with the game looking as if it would end 0-0, up stepped Traore to stun West Ham and give Wolves their first Premier League win of the 2018 / 2019 season.
