Foxes clash becomes even more critical

West Ham’s game against Leicester City tomorrow (Sun) became even more crucial with today’s results going very much against us.

Victory for Liverpool over Villa and Chelsea beating Palace at Selhurst Park saw the Irons drop from their lofty fourth place to sixth.

We are still level with Klopp’s lot with tomorrow’s game in hand but Chelsea climbed above us into fourth with a two point advantage.

The Foxes meanwhile sit in third place but a win would of course see us return to fourth place with the midland outfit holding just a one point advantage.

Defeat at home tomorrow could have even worse repercussions with Spurs meeting Manchester |United in north London.

David Moyes will of course be without Declan and Mikey but there’s clearly a chance that Angelo Ogbonna will be back.

  1. A huge game for the club tomorrow – a win would be an incredible achievement missing 2-3 key players. If we win the remaining 8 games we will be in the champions league. I watch the other teams results like everyone does but it is in our hands and the players just have to focus on their own game, be brave and positive and play to win.

  2. Don’t worry about the points just go out and play the best we can, try for the win, a draw is not too bad but the performance is the most important thing, being up there and having to get results is great experience, the main thing is to leave it all out on the pitch every game, if we do that we will do ok.

    • Well said @West Ham Fan No 32 – it is incredible to be competing with Chelsea and Liverpool – if we don’t make the the Champions League but give our all I would be happy and would like to think that the ajority of fans would also be – while if Spurs don’t make the CL and lose in the League Cup Final to Man City then their fans would be calling for Mourinho to be fired

      I will just be looking forward to teh game today and hoping for a performance COYI

  3. Good luck boys, and we have to remember that results will more than likely go against us every week as we are at the top, not the bottom of the league, as teams at the top invariably win.
    Come on you Irons!!
