Manchester United failed to beat Everton in the Premier League on Tuesday night, giving Arsenal an advantage in the race for the top four. The Red Devils hosted the blue side of Merseyside last night, as they looked to gain some impetus in the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition, but were unable to put the pressure on their rivals.
United needed an injury time penalty to earn themselves a point against Everton, their third draw in four league matches, and will now fall back into sixth spot should the Gunners land all three points later on.
West Ham are one of very few Premier League sides who actually have worse form than us coming into this game, having lost their last four consecutively, and could pose the ideal opponents as we look to build a little momentum in hope of snatching our usually consistent place inside the top four, although most of my fellow fans think we have more chance of getting a jackpot in one of the UK casino free spins
The match also poses another opportunity to gain impetus with Manchester City having to travel to Premier League leaders Chelsea. A Blues win could leave us only four points behind the Citizens with our side having played a game less. It would likely mean giving up on any little hope that remained of landing an unlikely league title this season. It would also be a big middle finger to Spurs fans who have been getting over vocal with their hopes of leapfrogging the leaders, as if we needed more reasons to hope Chelsea win.
Tottenham and Liverpool are both in action tomorrow also, but aren’t expected to slip up against Swansea and Bournemouth, but at this point of the campaign, there are no easy matches.
Will West Ham raise their game against us? Could we have the perfect midweek?
