West Ham can rise to 12th in the Premier League

Whilst us Irons fans were watching and celebrating an incredible victory by our under 18s at Arsenal there were a couple of other key games being played in the Premier League which affected the first team.

Wolves moved us above the Hammers into 13th place by beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at Molineux which was enough to see them join Roy Hodgson’s team¬† on 37 points in 12th.

A Hammers victory over Liverpool tonight will see us move into that position with a superior goal difference to either the midlands club or the Londoners.

Down at the bottom Leicester City moved out of the bottom three with a 1-1 draw against Leeds United at Elland Road.

It means they are now in 17th place and the Yorkshire outfit a place above them on 30 points, It’s still tight but a decent result against the Reds tonight should see the Hammers more than clear of relegation worries.
