West Ham finally safe following positive showing at King Power Stadium

  • West Ham United's English goalkeeper Joe Hart saves a shot from Arsenal's English striker Danny Welbeck during the English Premier League football match between Arsenal and West Ham United

However if they ensure a victory over the Foxes, they will ensure top-flight safety this season.

"If you look at Leicester, they lost 5-0 on Saturday, but they had a man sent-off at Crystal Palace on Saturday and it changed the game even more".

With the club safe, manager David Moyes now wants to make the team more consistent. It remains to be seen if Puel will still be in charge at that point, though.

The Hammers confirmed on Friday that Andy Carroll was fined following what Moyes described as the forward's "unacceptable" and "inexcusable" behaviour against Manchester City.

He was unhappy not to play in the 4-1 defeat by Manchester City, and left the bench before the end of Sunday's game after being an unused substitute. When fit he is arguably the most important player at the club, but he's only just returning from injury and he had a training ground bust up with Moyes earlier in the week - a matter which has apparently been resolved.

That is hardly the form of a team who are [2.34] shots and the players nearly looked disinterested at Selhurst Park last Saturday. Admittedly four of their last five have ended all square, but they will feel confident putting a few past West Ham's shaky back line.

Jason Greenblatt, Trump's Middle East envoy, will also attend the ceremony, as will Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Also on Monday, Jerusalem began putting up road signs pointing to the "US Embassy", replacing signs for the consulate.

Southampton's draw with Everton which followed West Ham's win on Saturday evening ensured the Hammers had survived relegation, with Saints still to play Swansea.

The Over/Under 2.5 Goal Market is pretty tight as the Over is marginal favourite at [1.92], while the Under is a shade of odds-against at [2.04].

"After this moment, in the last games we didn't have enough freshness in our minds to give our best and give a good reward for the fans, the owners and the players also".

Away from home West Ham's form is quite atrocious really.

'All of the video games now are huge, ' Moyes added.
