COYI – teach Chelsea a lesson after week of turmoil

The race for a Champions League spot could hardly be fiercer this weekend with the fifth placed Hammers and Chelsea both on 55 points.

The Irons will be very aware that Liverpool in sixth place are a big threat to their hopes and that makes the game against Thomas Tuchel’s team incredibly important.

With Leicester City beating West Brom 3-0 last night and Liverpool looking to be big favourites against Newcastle tomorrow the Hammers need a win to return them to fourth place.

That would push them three points clear of the Blues and five ahead of Spurs who managed a very late 2-1 win over Saints.

In a week when Chelsea and Spurs shown their disrespect for the Premier League before joining the proposed European Super League and then withdrawing in the face of massive protests, a win has probably never been more eagerly sought.

Let’s hope and pray we can teach them a big tome lesson after such arrogance towards the fans.

Hammers likely team: Fab; Coufal, Diop, Ogbonna, Johnson; Noble, Soucek, Benrahma, Fornals,  Lingard, Bowen.

  1. It is a massive game but I don’t think the pressure is on us none of the pundits is expecting us to qualify for CL . Wouldn’t it be nice though to break into that so called big six and even grab 4th and do it . I know we we will give it our all and I hope the lads do it . If we do we will certainly have earned it . The team have been fantastic one big push the final 6 games let’s hope and dream. COYI ⚒
