Hammers could go third tomorrow

A run of results going West Ham’s way means the Hammers could jump up into third place tomorrow should they beat Aston Villa.

West Ham currently sits in ninth place in the Premier League table on seven points behind Bournemouth, Arsenal, Leicester City, Manchester United, Spurs, Manchester City and Liverpool. Should the Hammers earn all three points they would be on the same points as Man City on ten points who lost yesterday to Norwich City.

Watford held Arsenal today 2-2 while Manchester United overcame Leciester Yesterday with Spurs, Chelsea and Bournemouth winning over the weekend.

While a Champions League place at the end of the season is still a pipe dream, a temporary rise to a top three plus a very winnable game playing Manchester United at the London Stadium next week must raise the confidence of Manuel Pellegrini and his first-team squad.

Of course, the West Ham way means we are almost guaranteed to lose tomorrow but maybe this is our season to luck that trend.

  1. To true we always blow it when other results go in our favour ☹

  2. It would be so like West Ham to balls it up tomorrow night. The West Ham of old…
    To be honest, I have a lot of confidence in the attacking threat that we possess now and I’m definitely expecting us to score more than we concede at Villa Park. ⚒️COYI⚒️

  3. That sinking feeling before we have even set sail is a All too familiar one . We have an awful habit of blowing our chances as History so aptly proves . But I prefer to try and shake off that feeling of inevitability for tomorrow because it’s been a very long time since we had a team like this one . It’s always going to be tough at Villa Park but this Pelligrini team seems to be growing up with a definite and noticeable change in mentality . A good win wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest . The possibility of going third started giving me goosebumps a while back .

  4. We need to give it everything to win so I’m hoping we do just that . Show the consistency we need , would love 3rd place . COYI ⚒

  5. And ,Everyone is missing the point that we will only be 5 points from 1st place,except we need to start scoring a lot more goals.
