West Ham United are enjoying a wonderful run of form which has shot them straight into the Champions League qualifying spots as they sit fourth in the Premier League.

The Hammers recorded yet another victory albeit a sticky one after they defeated a resilient Crystal Palace side at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.

David Moyes men came from a goal down after a very early strike by Wilfried Zaha which gave the home team the lead after three minutes.

It was West Hams Tomas Soucek who pulled the visitors back into the game after he scored two first-half goals which saw David Moyes’ men go into the break with the lead.

West Ham then went 3-1 up after a third from Craig Dawson in the 65th minute, a lead that lasted thirty minutes before a late consolation goal by Michy Batshuayi in the 97th minute.

As things stand the Hammers are fourth in the league and should they manage to continue their current form a place in the Champions League or more realistically, the Europa League, isn’t to far fetched.
