All the results from this weekend’s Premier League fixtures will go West Ham United’s way.
That’s according to Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas.
West Ham are mired in the relegation battle, sat in the bottom three with 13 games to go.
The Hammers face six of the top 10 including consecutive away games at Manchester City and Liverpool up next.
It is going to be a tough ask.
But there have been signs of late that West Ham’s luck might have changed.
Is West Ham’s luck starting to turn?
Storm Ciara saw the Man City match pushed back, giving David Moyes and new assistants Paul Nevin and Kevin Nolan a chance to work with the squad without interruption.
It also gave the players a much-needed rest from all the negativity surrounding the club.
Recent results have all gone West Ham’s way too.
Brighton drawing with Watford, Everton beating a Crystal Palace side freefalling their way into the relegation mix and Sheffield United winning against Bournemouth.
Nicholas predicts results will go West Ham’s way again
And now Sky Sports prediction pundit Charlie Nicholas believes this round of games will go West Ham’s way too.
Nicholas believes Southampton will beat Burnley at home while Norwich will take a hiding from champions-elect Liverpool.
The Scot feels Aston Villa will be distracted by the Carabao Cup final and will lose a tight game against Tottenham.
Nicholas believes his old club Arsenal will beat Newcastle comfortably at home too.
The Hammers – a point adrift in the bottom three going into the games – cannot move out of the relegation zone this weekend.
Now Moyes must pull a rabbit out of the hat
But if results do go as Nicholas predicts, West Ham would have a game in hand on every other team in the bottom 10.
They will then have to pull a rabbit out of the hat against Manchester City next week to take advantage and potentially climb up to 16th place.
A draw would see them swap places with Villa in the bottom three if they do lose to Spurs.
Realistically West Ham need four wins and a few draws or five wins to survive.
One man who is confident they can do it is new assistant boss Paul Nevin.
Speaking in his first interview with the club’s official website, Nevin has no doubts West Ham have the attitude and quality to get themselves out of trouble by the end of the season.
