Hammers looking to sign off with a win

Poor Leicester, as even victory is not certain to save them tomorrow so the Foxes face a win-or-bust scenario on the Premier League’s final day, when they host West Ham at the King Power Stadium.

Failure to win will see the Midlands club relegated from the Premier League just seven years after claiming the title under Claudio Ranieri  and they would become only the second side demoted from the division after winning it – following Blackburn Rovers.

The need maximum points on Sunday – and results elsewhere could still condemn them to the drop anyway. The Hammers, meanwhile, may have one eye on an upcoming European final.

While West Ham‘s Premier League season reaches its conclusion on Sunday, they are still over a week away from contesting the Europa Conference League final in Prague, where Fiorentina will stand in the way of some elusive silverware.

The Hammers have not won a major trophy since the FA Cup of 1980, so they could be forgiven for being distracted by such an opportunity yet that did not seem to be the case last Sunday.

Their top-flight safety was assured with a 3-1 win over Leeds United – when Declan Rice most likely signed off his spell in East London by opening the scoring – and the capital club now aim to build more momentum by ending a below-par league campaign with a three-match winning run.

Victory in Leicester could see David Moyes and Co climb to possibly the giddy heights of 12th in the final Premier League standings, which would add a gloss of respectability to a season scarred by several months spent battling at the bottom.

Against the odds, Moyes has survived until the final day and as West Ham have lost their final league game just once in the last six seasons, he will now seek a similarly positive outcome on Sunday.

  1. Let’s hope for a win! Good news for next season is Luton Town promoted, so welcome back Reece Burke and Dan Potts, from the Academy of football.

  2. …….and Pelly Ruddock. He looks a very good player having won four promotions with Luton. Good luck to the three former Hammers.
