With only a handful of games to go, West Ham look in serious danger of being relegated following tonight’s 3-1 defeat at home to fellow strugglers Wolves.
Gianfranco Zola’s men remain in 17th place in the Premier League table, however 19th place Hull now have a game in hand on the Hammers and are only 3 points behind.
I fully expected West Ham to win in front of their home fans tonight and open a bit of a gap up between them and the bottom three, however after tonight’s result I really am starting to think they may actually go down.
As it stands, I feel Portsmouth and Burnley are down. The 9 point deduction Pompey received last week has killed any chance they had of staying up and with Burnley, I think they sealed their fate when they appointed Brian Laws as their manager.
One team will be joining them in the Championship next season and at the moment it’s between West Ham and Hull. The bookies have West Ham at around 13/5 to go down whilst Hull are odds-on to go down (4/5 with most bookies).
