Hammers can move up to seventh

West Ham fans and players will be keeping a keen eye on the clash between Everton and Leicester this lunchtime with both teams narrowly above us the the league table.

The Hammers are on 27 points from 20 games whilst Everton are in 10th on the same 27 and Leicester on 28 after losing to Cardiff City last time out.

A draw would obviously be the perfect result and set us up with plenty of of optimism for the game against Brighton tomorrow.

A win would see us catapult over over the two sides involved today although defeatĀ  by Bournemouth of Watford tomorrow would put the pressure on us for three points tomorrow as the Cherries sit just one point and one place beneath us.

However, if all were to go according to plan the Irons could finish the festive and new year season as high as seventh if all the results were to fall in our direction.
