West Ham had a good weekend without even playing.
The Hammers remained in 18th spot in the table, one point adrift of safety, but results elsewhere finally went their way.
Bournemouth were beaten by Sheffield United and Brighton drew with Watford.
And some West Ham fans were jubilant on Twitter with the way that things panned out this weekend:
What a weekend for us! Feeling a little better now? ⚒

The only way we weren’t going to get beat today was through an “act of god” thank you God 😁

A lot of hard work still lies ahead for the Hammers, however.
They have to play Liverpool away, Southampton at home, Arsenal away, Wolves at home, Tottenham away and Chelsea at home in their next six fixtures. David Moyes’s men also have to play their rearranged fixture away at Manchester City.
The good news is that Moyes certainly has enough quality in his ranks to avoid relegation this season.
West Ham’s big-name players really need to step up and be counted between now and the end of the season.
The likes of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and Sebastien Haller really need to start performing.
And if they do just that, the Hammers have every chance of avoiding the drop this season.
