West Ham United’s players certainly seem to be having as much fun as the club’s fans in the race for Europe.
The 3-2 victory over Leicester on Sunday lifted the Hammers back up to fourth place.
And David Moyes’s side are now just one point off the third-placed Foxes with seven games to go.
West Ham players enjoying European race just as much as fans
It seems to be a six team battle for two Champions League spots and West Ham have their destiny in their own hands.
West Ham fans cannot believe the turnaround in the club’s fortunes.
Moyes has worked miracles and his players are clearly enjoying the ride.
Another Jesse Lingard brace – making it eight goals and four assists in just nine games – and a third goal in as many games for Jarrod Bowen secured West Ham’s latest win.
Masuaku’s hilarious Messi comparison as Noble reveals how Lingard brace is about to cost him big time
And after the game Arthur Masuaku and Mark Noble provided hilarious reactions to Lingard’s latest heroics.
Masuaku compared Lingard to the great Lionel Messi.
While Noble has revealed he has now lost a bet with the Manchester United loan star which could prove very costly indeed.
“Didn’t know Messi was born in Warrington,” Masuaku said on Twitter referring to Lingard.
“Another W (win) and a superb performance from the team again.
“We keep going.”
‘It’s going to cost me a few quid! He’s been fantastic’
Noble revealed he had a bet with Lingard that if he scored eight goals before the end of the season he would pay for a night out and stay at luxury London hotel The Corinthia.
His brace saw him hit that particular marker and Noble is braced for his bank balance to take a hiding.
“As much as Jesse’s goals were fantastic, I had a bet with him when he first came to the club that if he scored eight goals, I’d pay for a night out for him and a stay in the Corinthia Hotel, so it’s going to cost me a few quid!” Noble told whufc.com.
“He’s been fantastic for us hasn’t he!”
Long may it continue. Come On You Irons.
