Leicester two down as West Ham look safer and safer


Leicester City are well on their way to becoming the second team unable to catch up with West Ham in the Premier League table.

The Reds went two goals ahead in the first half of the game with Jones scoring twice in double quick time.

It means that if things stay as they are, or get worse for City, they will remain on 30 points – seven behind the Hammers with two games to play.

And that would mean they join relegated Southampton as the second club unable to catch David Moyes’ team.

And of course with us playing Leeds  in our penultimate game one point would mean were are safe on points for next season.

It will take the unlikeliest of comebacks from Leicester to take anything from a game Liverpool are dominating.

West Ham fans are able to watch with great comfort as they prepare for a European clash against AZ Alkmaar on Thursday followed by that important Leeds game.

    Our superior goal difference means we don’t need a point. Plus 11 with 2 games to play!

    Wouldn’t you say that there are 3 teams that can’t catch us ie Southampton, Leicester & Leeds. OK, I know that we shouldn’t take anything for granted, but how likely are Leeds to catch up 6 points in two games & score 12 more goals than us ?
