West Ham United Starting Lineup Prediction at West Brom

Share

While it’s almosr certain West Ham United wont finish in the top four, and that’s very disappointing considering where they were in the table during April, one must look at those expectations within the proper context.

Last season the Hammers were just able to survive and stay up in the top flight, so entering this term, any kind of European football would be considered a huge accomplishment. The UEL qualification is still there for them, provided they take care of business and get help. The next step is a trip to already relegated West Brom on Wednesday night.

Tottenham continue to be in the hunt for the Champions League spots as they get ready to host Aston Villa on Wednesday. What changes can we expect from Ryan Mason for this game?

Spurs got a hugely important win against Wolves on Sunday to keep pace with Chelsea and Liverpool for that fourth spot. To get there, they will have to win their remaining two matches and hope that other teams lose points. The best bet for the North Londoners would be to settle for the Europa League next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Says Fan Protests Have Adversely Impacted the Team

Share

It was a natural eventuality that the impassioned prolonged protests against the ownership of Manchester United would take their toll on the team. With the protests getting out of hand earlier this month and forcing the cancellation if the home against Liverpool, the fixture had to be rescheduled, and that was an add-on to already congested slate of fixtures.

With United playing three league fixtures in five days this past week, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to massively rotate his side and pick one match in which he fields an extremely weakened side. Essentially that’s conceding a match, and well, United did in fact lose that one, 2-1 Tuesday night to Leicester City, as they put out a side of kids and reserves.
