West Ham are mathematically safe!

West Ham are mathematically safe from relegation from the Premier League following the Southampton draw against Everton this evening.

Following the Hammers 2-0 win over Leicester City there remained the remotest of possibilities the Irons could still go down as bookies lengthened the odds of a West Ham relegation to 200/1.

Before the Southampton and Everton game the only way that West Ham could go down if the Hammers lose their last two games against Manchester United and Everton – Swansea would need to beat Southampton & Stoke – Southampton would need to lose to Swansea but beat Everton & Man City and Huddersfield would need to get at least 3 points from Chelsea, Man City & Arsenal and close the goal Difference gap from ours by eight.

Southampton failure to hold on to a lead against Everton this evening meant West Ham will definitely play in the Premier League next season.

  1. Don’t know if it’s just me but , if either Swansea or Southampton ( both on 33 pts ) Win Thier next two games one of them will have 39 pts . West Ham are on 38 . So If west ham lose Thier two remaining games which leaves them stuck on 38 pts they will be relegated .
    And if Huddersfield Win 4 pts more they would also be on 39 pts .
    Have I got that Right ?? .

  2. No.
    Swansea and Soto play each other on Tuesday so at least one of them will drop points.

    • Yes , Mary , but in that case one of them won’t . The best case scenario for us is if they draw. . That would eliminate the possibility of 39 pts . Do you see what I mean ?? .

  3. For absolute and complete safety we need ONE more point .

    • No Kevin, believe me, we don’t.
      Both Swansea AND Southampton need to win both of their games to get 39pts (assuming we lose both of our games and end with 38pts).
      However, as they’re playing each other on Tuesday, they can’t both get 3 points from the same game, can they?

  4. Blimey Kevin are you on here too arguing this one. I will be having nightmares tonight of being locked in a lift with you trying to explain this 😤😤😤😤
