West Ham are in a dreadful position right now.
The performance against their bitter London rivals was pretty dire, with the first-half display one of the most abject of the season by any team.
Felipe Anderson was hauled off at half-time once again, Andriy Yarmolenko just didn’t look interested and Sebastian Haller was starved of service.
But the worst performance of the day was once again reserved for goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez.

Signed from Espanyol in the summer, the 33-year-old Spaniard has been an absolute disaster between the posts for the Hammers since filling in for the injured Lukasz Fabianski.
He’s now conceded 19 goals in just eight games and he was guilty of two more errors today in the London derby.
They’re far from the worst mistakes made by Roberto this season, but a goalkeeper in the Premier League simply has to do so much better with both.
Roberto’s pathetic attempt to stop Heung-min Son
The South Korean’s shot from inside the area had some force behind it, but it was straight at Roberto.
Instead of standing up to the ball, he simply falls back into the goal and watches Son’s strike crash into the net.
You expect so much better from a professional goalkeeper.
Roberto flaps at Harry Kane’s header
Kane’s header is well directed into the ground, but it’s not exactly in the corner and Roberto simply has to do better.
It’s hard to watch a player so bereft of confidence and ability make mistake after mistake, but it’s now down to Manuel Pellegrini to remove him from the side for his own good.
Unless the West Ham boss is sacked before he has the chance to do so.
