Permutations for West Ham to secure survival ahead of Leicester vs Liverpool



Permutations for West Ham to secure survival ahead of Leicester vs Liverpool

West Ham United cannot secure their place in next season’s Premier League until they face Leeds United at the earliest after losing to Brentford on Sunday.

The Hammers would have secured their safety on Sunday at the Gtech Community Stadium had they beaten the Bees, or, they could have still done it this weekend with a draw, had other results gone their way.

However, a defeat does mean that West Ham will have to wait until next weekend’s set of Premier League matches.

Leicester City, currently sat 19th after 35 games, host European hopefuls Liverpool on Monday night, and the result could boost West Ham’s chances of officially sealing their safety

Sitting seven points behind West Ham with three games to go, should Leicester lose to Liverpool, they will not be able to catch the Hammers, becoming the second team in that position after already-relegated Southampton.

If the result goes West Ham’s way and Liverpool win, it will mean that the Hammers’ safety could become officially safe on Saturday afternoon if Everton fail to win away at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Should Leicester lose but Everton win, West Ham need just a point next Sunday at home to Leeds United to clinch their survival.

Premier League’s bottom six:

15th West Ham United P36 37pts

17th Everton P36 32pts

19th Leicester City P35 30pts

‘Completely out of budget’–Club can’t afford Liverpool player, claims dismissed

Firmino’s contract at Liverpool expires at the end of the current season, meaning the Brazilian is free to pick his next destination.

Whilst there’ll be no transfer fee to pay, the player’s salary is likely to be high as he makes the most of his opportunity.

Inter Milan have been repeatedly linked in England, with the Serie A side said to be keen on the Liverpool forward. However, Calciomercato say these claims are ‘clashing’ with reality at the Italian club.

Firmino’s salary is said to be over €10m a year, and such an amount is ‘completely out of budget’ for Inter Milan, therefore he’s not a player they’re targeting this summer.

That sounds pretty conclusive from Calciomercato, but maybe if the 31-year-old were to drastically cut his requests then he’d have more clubs queuing up for his signature.

A return to South America isn’t thought to be on the cards at this stage of the Liverpool player’s career.

Firmino has played 33 matches for Liverpool this season, scoring 11 goals and adding five assists.
