Hammers drop out of top four

West Ham have dropped out of the top four after a goalless draw from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge against Brighton last night.

The kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes as one thousand  Chelsea fans protested over their team’s European Super League plans causing the team bus to be late.

Chelsea earned a point in lacklustre display and are now on the same points as the Hammers but the West London side have superior goal difference ironically just nabbing that Champions League fourth place.

Twenty four hours earlier Leeds United did West Ham a favour by scoring an 87th-minute equaliser which kept Liverpool back in sixth place, a win for the Reds would have allowed them to leapfrog the Hammers into fourth place.

West Ham must win against Chelsea on Saturday at the London Stadium to regain a top-four spot. Liverpool faces Newcastle before the Hammers evening game so could push the Irons back into sixth place before kick-off.

It will be another cup final for West Ham this weekend in their push for Champions League football next season.

One comment on “Hammers drop out of top four

  1. The recent Liverpool and Chelsea games have not done the Irons too much damage. We’ve dropped out of the top 4 only on goal difference.
    Our home game against Chelsea was always big; now it’s massive. We simply must take all three points to regain fourth place and give ourselves some breathing space.
    With Declan and Mikey out injured this is far from easy. In Covid times there’s very little to be gained by playing at home.
    Hopefully Jesse will be back and firing. This is going to take a huge effort by all our players to get over the line. Let’s do it!
    COYI.
