Recent results & form
West Ham’s hopes of securing a place in Europe through the league have taken a battering in recent weeks, but they could qualify by securing the Europa League title.
David Moyes’ team have won just two of their last six matches in the English top-flight, resulting in them dropping to seventh in the table.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are still in a strong position to book a place in next season’s Champions League.
They brought an end to a damaging three-game losing streak by beating Chelsea and Manchester United with some strong performances.
Fourth place is theirs to throw away in the final four matches of the season and they will need a positive result this week as a crucial clash against Tottenham is coming up in May.
