Hammers face new threat to Euro ambitions

Brighton and Hove Albion emerged as a new threat to West Ham’s European ambitions when  thrashing Manchester United who fell apart in the face of some outstanding football from the south coast side.

And whilst their 4-o defeat has let the Hammers back in with a hope of finishing in the top six, we will need to win at least one of our remaining  games to ensure that Brighton can’t overhaul us.

However, on the flip side is that should we beat Norwich tomorrow we are again within three points of the Old Trafford outfit with one game in hand.

With Wolves now on 50 points, just two behind the Hammers, the Carrow Road game has taken on a seriously new importance given that Brighton is our final game of the season with Manchester City to deal with in our penultimate League fixture of the campaign.

  1. If we beat Norwich tomorrow I don’t think we need to worry about Brighton or wolves. If we win our last three games we Finish 6th and get europa league again. Going to be hard to beat city going for the title though. So we’ve got to hope Crystal Palace can do us a favour and beat Man U in their last game. I think it’s possible. Europa league is still possible but I will take europa conference.

  2. As it is it could not be tougher. Let’s face it, Norwich will feel free to play, but we really must win. Man City will be playing for the title, Brighton playing to topple us, and they are both in great form, and frankly we are not. Massive at Carrow Road.
