The Hammers have been inconsistent since the turn of the year after holding a position in the top six for much of the first half of the season.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce will be hoping that his team can push for a place comfortably inside the top ten but that may not be possible if things don’t pick up and the team finds a way of securing more consistent results.
West Ham played some great football over the first half of the season and it would be fitting if the side settled in the first half of the campaign.
It’s also a finish, which could improve Allardyce’s chances of getting a new contract from the club along the lines he would be hoping for rather than a bottom half finish, which strengthens the case for getting rid of the boss.
Next up for the Hammers is Leicester City away when the international break ends and the domestic action resumes.
