West Ham United fans are daring to dream of what a fourth consecutive victory could mean for their team.

West Ham have won three games on the bounce for the first time since 2016.

They have hit three goals in each of those games, a feat the Hammers have not managed since 1982.

Seventh heaven and a six-goal swing

The nine-point week has put Manuel Pellegrini’s side up to 11th in the Premier League table.

And after Everton’s 2-2 draw with Watford on Monday night, supporters are now daring to dream of gatecrashing the top seven on Saturday.

The Hammers travel to hapless London rivals Fulham knowing a win would put them level on 24 points with seventh place Everton.

Fulham and Everton lambs to the slaughter?

Meanwhile the Toffees face the daunting task of travelling to free-scoring champions Manchester City.

 

A big defeat at the Etihad is a distinct possibility.

Coupled with a solid West Ham win against the side that has conceded the second most goals at this stage of a season in Premier League history could see the six-goal swing needed.

West Ham have come a long way since those opening four defeats.

By Saturday night they could be serious contenders for the European places.

The Pellegrini effect.
