West Ham have put a dent in their hopes of finishing within the top four after losing 4-1 at home to Swansea.
The Hammers were uncharacteristically poor against the Swans, going 3-0 down within 51 minutes to goals from Wayne Routledge (25), Andre Ayew (31) and Sung-yueng Ki (51). In fact, West Ham’s only consolation goal came courtesy of our old friend, OG (in this case, Stephen Kingsley).
Swansea then put the final nail in the coffin in the 90+2nd minute with a goal from Bafétimbi Gomis.
The Hammers remain on 59 points, four behind Manchester United in fifth place and five behind Manchester City in fourth. Although it’s still possible for them to get a Champions League spot, they can’t mathematically catch up with Arsenal in third on 67 points. Although I’m sure Slaven Bilic wasn’t eyeing the top three too closely; a top five finish would still be a decent end to a brilliant season for the Irons.
