With the news dominated these last two days by the ongoing speculation that Sam Allardyce is to be sacked as manager next week, you would be forgiven to have forgot that we actually have a game to play this Sunday – and quite a big one at that.
West Ham travel to The Etihad Stadium to take on the wealthiest club in the league, Manchester City, for the title decider – and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes the Hammers have what it takes to cause a major upset, and throw in another major twist in this seasons title race.
When asked if he felt Liverpool’s title hopes were gone Rodgers replied “It’s certainly not over. West Ham have got some really talented players and if you can go to Tottenham and win 3-0, you can certainly go to Manchester City (and win).”
Rodgers feels the key to West Ham getting a result this Sunday will be down to our defence.
“They’ve got a really good defensive record with 14 clean sheets, so it shows they’re a really difficult team to play against.”
West Ham have no fresh injury concerns ahead of what is shaping up to be an epic encounter this Sunday.
