(Wolverhampton-West Ham 2-3) After 30 league rounds last season, it was the goal difference that kept West Ham to the right of the relegation line. Now the London club is in the Champions League.
West Ham, who won the away victory against Wolverhampton on the 2nd day of Easter, moved to 4th place in the Premier League. Now there are four points to Leicester and one point to Chelsea, who are in the Europa League with eight league rounds remaining.
When 30 games were played last season, West Ham had 27 points and the league leaders ranked 17th, 56 behind Liverpool. When Easter is over, the London club is three points ahead of last season’s league champions. A little reversal operation.
Jesse Lingard also has a share. After borrowing from Manchester United, he survived with five goals and two goals in seven matches.
– It was a tough game, but we did it. This was a great victory. Now we have to focus on the next matches. Hard matches are left for Sky Sports, but the kids are ready, Lingard says.
The 28-year-old footballer graced the stats, accelerating to ten meters in his own half of the field and speeding towards the goal. After passing two Wolverhampton players, he threw the ball on goalkeeper Rui Patricio after six minutes of play.
Eight minutes after Lingard scored his third goal for West Ham, Pablo Fornals advanced to 2-0. This time to Jarrod Bowen.
He looked brilliant for the London club with 3-0 after 38 minutes. Later, when Leander Dendoncker used his head on a post from Adama Traore, the reduction came before the break.
Substitution is ruined for Everton
And suddenly, after his back-up Fabio Silva fell to 2-3 with a big goal from the penalty area, there was another struggle and excitement.
West Ham was pressed to his butt, leaned forward but kept away in the last minutes.
Now Leicester is waiting for the next game.
