Jesse Lingard again astonished and was central to another fabulous Hammers victory.
Once again though it was edge of the seat stuff as the lads produced a near identikit performance to the one they produced at Molineux.
Once again we clung on but not without some great goalkeeping and good fortune. Who cares? In the end it means we are just one point behind the Foxes and bidding for third place.
Next weekend it’s Newcastle followed by Chelsea and Burnley – all games which need to be won with Leicester lookig – on the face of it – to having a softish run in.
Lingard appeared after the game to give his take on things and sounded very much like a guy who has all but made his mind up that this is where he wants to stay.
Talking to www.whufc.com the Manchester United loanee was clearly delighted at the result and his part in it.
He said: “We always seem to make it like that at the end! It’s been like that for the last three games, but we’re still learning as a team and we’re still growing, so we’ll take the positives and the negatives out of this game.
“It seems like we always start off really well, quickly and on the front foot, and we put teams under pressure early.
“[We want to] start in the second half like that and push on for four or five goals.
“But there’s big belief in the team and a huge confidence going on at the moment. We take each game as it comes and we’ll keep that concentration going to the end of the season.”
“I’m picking up good positions where I know the ball will fall and then it’s down to me to put the ball in the back of the net,” he explained.
“It’s confidence, instinct, knowing the players, knowing where the right back and left back are going to put it and being in the right position.
“I think the first one was off my shin! The ball already had a bit of curl on it and it’s ended up in the net.
“Everyone thought Jarrod was offside for the second, but we play to the whistle and he’s put it on a plate. It’s still down to having the concentration and focus to put the ball away.
“We’ve got something to fight for and that’s great. Each week we’re playing games like it’s a cup final and doing our best to get the three points. Today again we held on for the win and took the three points.”
