According to Claret and Hugh, Liverpool could be awarded all three points after yesterday’s clash with Manchester United was abandoned. And that would be a massive blow for West Ham United.

The Hammers are currently sitting in sixth spot in the Premier League table just one point ahead of the Reds.

Liverpool have a fairly easy run-in, however.

Man United away is the toughest game that Jurgen Klopp’s men have left to play this season.

Massive Liverpool boost and huge blow for West Ham?

Hammers insiders Claret and Hugh reckon that the Reds could be awarded all three points after yesterday’s abandoned match at Old Trafford due to fan protests.

The high level insiders site the FA rulebook, under section 8.3.4 whereby Manchester United could be found to have been at fault for the match not going ahead if they find the club’s security measures weren’t adequate.

 

Liverpool would be then awarded maximum points from the clash.

The rule reads:

“In the event of a match being abandoned due to the conduct of one Club or its members or supporters the Board has the power to order that the match is not replayed and to award either one or three points to the Club not at fault.”

If Liverpool were awarded the win, it would be a hammer blow to West Ham’s hopes of finishing insider the top six this season.

The Reds have some very winnable games remaining this term and we could be reliant on them dropping points at Old Trafford.

The outcome of the inquiry could prove to be pivotal in deciding whether European football is played at Anfield or the London Stadium next season.
