The victory secures West Ham’s best ever Premier League points tally, while Dimitri Payet became the first player since Paolo Di Canio to record at least ten assists in a single campaign for the club.
Commenting on Twitter after the game, Gold was understandably in buoyant mood as he singled out trio Winston Reid, Kouyate and Payet as three outstanding performers along with the fans.
What a victory. Where should I start, Reid, Kouyate, Payet, and the fans were awesome supported by the rest of the team. Well done Slaven.dg— David Gold (@davidgold) April 30, 2016
West Ham’s victory now leaves them on 59 points, five points adrift of Manchester City in fourth spot.
Slaven Bilic has done a remarkable job in his debut season, and had it not been for a mini-slump and Dimitri Payet’s absence with injury in mid-season, the Hammers would probably be in the top four now.
The East London club have plenty of potential and reason to be excited for next season, and supporters can eagerly look forward to what promises to be an interesting summer ahead of the Olympic Stadium move.
