Danny Murphy suggested that West Ham United could fall away in the race for the top four this season, when writing his column for BBC Sport.
The Hammers have been truly exceptional so far this season.
The East London outfit have taken the Premier League by storm and we are currently sitting in fourth spot in the table.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over at the London Stadium for the second time in December 2019.
West Ham are a proper outfit now and finally we have a team we can be very proud of once again.
The Hammers have some incredibly difficult games on the horizon, however.
Danny Murphy makes West Ham prediction
David Moyes men have to face Leeds, Manchester United, Arsenal, Wolves and Leicester in their next five games.
And Danny Murphy thinks that West Ham may begin to slide down the table soon (BBC Sport):
“West Ham have been doing it for a few weeks already (grinding out results). The Hammers are another side that are very difficult to break down, as City found out on their way to beating them. Ultimately, though, I have a feeling David Moyes’ side might fall a bit short.”
The West Ham squad is incredibly weak as far as strength in depth is concerned.
If we manage to keep all of our key players fit between now and the end of the season, however, we have every chance of a top six finish.
Finishing inside the top six may be somewhat of a stretch this season. If we do miss out it won’t be through a lack of trying, however.
The West Ham players have given everything this season. And that is all we ask for as supporters.
