West Ham Urged to Bounce Back


West Ham boss David Moyes is calling for a swift recovery from his players following their Europa League defeat to Bayer Leverkusen. The Hammers must refocus on the Premier League top-seven race.

West Ham put in a valiant effort against Leverkusen but fell short, losing 2-0. Now, their European aspirations hang in the balance. Moyes, however, emphasises the importance of immediate focus on the Premier League.

West Ham face a crucial match against Fulham this weekend, a team that thrashed them earlier this season. Despite the European setback, Moyes acknowledges that a second-leg comeback remains a possibility.

The battle for European spots in the Premier League is intense. West Ham currently sits in seventh but could drop a place depending on other results. Finishing in the top six guarantees European football, with seventh potentially qualifying them as well.

The exact number of English teams qualifying for Europe next season depends on the outcome of the Premier League‘s competition with the Bundesliga for an extra Champions League spot.

The Irons need to regroup, recapture their winning form, and secure points in the remaining Premier League games. Their European dream might still be alive (just!), but the immediate focus must be on securing a European spot through their league position.
