Hammers still flying high


West Ham held their place in the Premier League top three following today’s results.

The Hammers were on top following the 3-1 win over Luton at Kenilworth Road last night but were overhauled as Manchester City and Spurs scored heavy scoring wins in their fixtures this afternoon.

City saw off Fulham at the Etihad by 5-1 with the Spurs putting five past Burnley at Turf Moor with the hosts managing just two in reply.

That saw City go clear at the top by two points with Spurs and ourselves on 1o points although the north London mob have a better goal difference – plus seven to our five.

Liverpool and Arsenal on seven points both play tomorrow with the Merseysiders playing Aston Villa at Anfield and the Gooners entertaining Manchester United – who are in tenth place on six points – at the Emirates.

We will be looking for the Liverpool and Arsenal Reds to lose or draw, or at least win by no more than two goals or three respectively, for us to remain in that top three.
