West Ham Trounce Sheffield 3-0

West Ham have propelled themselves to the top four of the English Premier League (EPL), following their unexpected 3-0 win over Sheffield United on Monday, 15 February.

Playing on home turf at London Stadium, the Hammers scored their first goal at the 41st minute, thanks to a penalty made by defensive midfielder Declan Rice.

Team-mate Issa Diop made it 2-0 at the 58th minute, before substitute Ryan Fredericks stepped off the bench at the 90th minute-mark to seal a third goal for the club.

As a result of their win, West Ham are sitting pretty on the EPL table with a total of 42 points – they are tied with Chelsea for fourth place overall.

Hammers coach, David Moyes, remarked after the game: “We’ve got five games before April and if we make it to there, it might start hotting up. But it nearly feels uneasy talking like this. The teams around us are top, top teams and we are going to have to play incredibly well to be there.”
