The season for West Ham has not been how many predicted, with the Hammers struggling at the wrong end of the table.
Victory over Swansea City at the weekend has relaxed fears of relegation for the East London side but they still face a tough end to the season, with the likes of Everton, Tottenham and Liverpool still to play.
West Ham’s win over Swansea saw the Hammers secure an eight-point advantage over the relegation zone, which gives them a comfortable cushion, but their advantage could be cut as quickly as it was built.
The Hammers face another crucial relegation battle this weekend as they travel to face rock-bottom Sunderland, before tricky ties against Stoke City and Everton.
However, Harry Redknapp believes the Hammers victory over Swansea has done enough to assure the club of their Premier League status for another season.
Speaking to BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight, the former Tottenham boss said:
“Yeah, I think West Ham will be fine.”
“All of those bottom teams getting eight points, you wouldn’t want to bet on that, would you?”
West Ham will look to extend their advantage above the drop-zone further this weekend when they travel to the North East, whilst relegation rivals Swansea City tackle Watford.
