West Ham happy with Allardyce’s Leeds defeat


West Ham remained four points ahead of Leeds as the Yorkshire outfit were beaten by Manchester City this afternoon.

Sam Allardyce – taking charge of the team – couldn’t manage to make it a winning start as G√ľndogan goals in the 19th and 27th minute saw off his team who managed a late consolation via Rodrigo.

It means that Leeds are now on 30 points in 17th place whilst the Irons are in 15th on 34 and three points tomorrow evening would leave the Hammers strongly placed to remain in the Premier League.

In the other match involving a team still not entirely clear of trouble Bournemouth were beaten at home by Chelsea 3-1 which leaves the Cherries five points ahead of the Irons who have that game against United in hand.

The remaining fixtures by teams around us this weekend are Brighton v Everton and Nottingham Forest v Southampton on Monday afternoon and evening.
