WEST Ham United go into tonight’s crunch clash with Stoke City knowing that victory should be enough to secure their Premier League safety.

A thumping 3-0 win over Southampton was followed up by a fantastic result at Chelsea, which saw the Hammers draw 1-1 at the home of the soon-to-be dethroned champions.

As a result, David Moyes’ side have climbed up the standings and I think a win over relegation threatened Stoke - at the London Stadium - will be enough to ensure West Ham are playing Premier League football again next season.

It has been a campaign full of turmoil at the club.

Before the season got underway, I thought the signings of Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez would take West Ham onto another level.

Hart, Zabaleta and Hernandez are Premier League winners, while Arnautovic was Stoke’s best player during his time with the Potters and he also boasts Inter Milan among his former clubs.

But three away games, to get the season underway, got West Ham off to the worst possible start.

Numerous heavy defeats also followed, along with Slaven Bilic being sacked as boss of the Hammers.

Moyes was appointed as Bilic’s successor and a significant amount of West Ham supporters were disappointed with the board’s decision to appoint a manager who had failed at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.

But there is no doubting that Moyes has improved the side. The fitness levels have improved, while Arnautovic and Arthur Masuaku look completely different players compared to at the start of term.

The board have also been heavily criticised throughout the season - no more so than in the home defeat to Burnley.

West Ham will be pleased to see the back of this season. The owners must invest in the summer to avoid another poor campaign.
