Hammers can hit top six after today’s results

West Ham can hit sixth place again tomorrow with a victory over Everton at the London Stadium after slipping to eighth place following today’s results.

The Hammers suffered a setback in the lunchtime game when Wolves beat Aston Villa in the midlands derby to move above them.

And the 2-1 defeat of Villa was followed by Leicester City managing to draw at Old Trafford will allow  the Hammers to make ground on the Old Trafford team should we beat the the merseysiders.

The Hammers are now in eighth place with 48 points from 30 games just a point behind United with 51 and on the same number of games. We are now three points short of Spurs who have a game in hand.
