When you’re 16th in the table I guess it can be a cause for celebration, at least to some extent, as you’re clear of the relegation zone. That’s where West Ham United are right now, but they’re only safe of the “danger zone” (apologies to Kenny Loggins) by just a single point.
Still they have only lost once, in their past five, so that is what you call an upturn in form, and it has given the David Moyes regime a new lease on life. Up next is a home clash with fellow Londoners Chelsea.

Having just achieved a draw against Newcastle United, which is like a win for the Hammers when you consider where both sides are in the table right now, the East Londoners have to be feeling fine right now.
Why not keep the same lineup then that got a result against the Geordies? Sounds like a great idea to me.
