Ezequiel Rescaldani scored on 22. Luis Alberto doubled the Malaga lead two minutes later.
The Hammers were yet again pretty toothless up front and this defeat to Malaga was another poor pre-season result.
Besides a penalty shoot-out win over Schalke, after a 0-0 draw on Saturday, Sam Allardyce’s side are yet to win in pre season and have now conceded 7 goals in 5 games.
With Andy Carroll out for a lengthy period, do West Ham need to buy attacking players if they are going to succeed in the Premier League this coming season?
