Chelsea and Leicester City both lost on Saturday, while Tottenham missed the chance to go fourth as they drew at Newcastle on Sunday.
While it may be too much to ask for a 100 per cent record between now and the end of the season, results this weekend have shown that West Ham have as much chance as any of the top-four hopefuls of realising their dream – but the pressure is now well and truly on.

This is a tough one to call on past results. The Hammers thrashed Wolves 4-0 in the return fixture this season, but had lost their previous four before that. With so much on the line, the Hammers could just shade it.
