West Ham co-chairman David Gold feels the club’s top-four dreams are still alive after an encouraging weekend of results.
The Hammers beat West Brom 3-0 on Saturday afternoon to make it back-to-back Premier League wins and leave them in sixth place in the top-flight standings.
The Londoners have now taken 59 points this term and are just one place and one point behind Manchester United.
With the top two out of sight and Arsenal’s victory over Norwich all but sealing a top-four spot for the Gunners, it now appears to be between fourth-placed Manchester City, United and West Ham for the final place.
City have played a game more and qualification for next season’s elite club competition is still in their hands, but the way things evolved on Saturday and Sunday has left Gold in a positive frame of mind.
“Liverpool lost Man City lost Man United drew West Ham won. The dream is still alive,” he tweeted.
Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Slaven Bilic’s side to finish in the top four and they are next in action against Swansea City on Saturday, May 7.
