Hammers lose ground in top four race

West Ham fell to sixth in the Premier League as a result of Thursday’s results.

The Hammers headed into the evening in fourth.

But Everton beat West Brom 1-0 in the early kick-off, while Chelsea then beat Liverpool 1-0 later in the night.

The results mean the Blues are now fourth heading into the weekend, two points clear of the Irons.

Everton are fifth after their win, with the Hammers now in sixth.

The Toffees and West Ham have both played the same amount of games – with 26 – while Chelsea have played a game more.

The race for European football is now bunched up; Liverpool are two points behind the Irons in seventh, while Spurs are eighth with 42 points after their 1-0 win over Fulham.

The Hammers are next in action on Monday against Leeds before clashes with Manchester United and Arsenal.

Winning all three would surely place the Hammers in a fine position to qualify for the Champions League so that has to be the aim!

  1. LVP are terrible. Chelsea marginally better. More EFL than EPL.
    We are masters of our own destiny. Time to take control.

  2. I had been nervously watching Everton and Villa as they made up the games they were behind.

    Villa stumbled and now have four games to come involving top six clubs. We have four* but Everton only have three*. * including Irons v Toffees at Stratford. Of course, any Prem club can win against the odds as Sheffield proved against Villa so all we can do is try to win everything 🙂 COYI!

  3. I think as fans we should just take it one game at a time – wherever we finish this season will be a step up from last season’s 16th – and Moyes won’t allow the players to slack off

    Let us first of all do the double over Leeds

    • Was about to make same comments zahamoore. Totally agree with your words. Our aim for the rest of the season needs to be to perform, improve, maintain and enjoy each game as it comes. No dreaming of the mathematical second place finish as we go through the motions and then the inquests. Leeds next. Give it a go boys. Do the same for each game, and after the last game, we will see where we have finished. As you say, we have stepped up from last season and should be very pleased about our play and position.
