David Moyes’ side seemed to be in trouble early in the game as Chris Wood scored from the penalty spot, but within 10 minutes Michail Antonio had struck twice to turn the game on its head and keep the Hammers firmly in the hunt for a top-four finish.
With four matches left to play, West Ham are fifth, three points shy of Chelsea but with a significantly inferior goal difference that means they will very likely need to outperform Thomas Tuchel’s men by four points before the end of the season.
With Manchester United and Leicester virtually assured of a top-four finish, it appears to be a shootout between Chelsea, the Hammers, and Liverpool for the final spot. Jurgen Klopp’s men may be seven points off the pace of the Blues, but their game in hand against Manchester United means that deficit could be almost halved.
In the Black Country derby, Fabio Silva scored a fortunate opener for the visitors on the stroke of half-time but Mbaye Diagne squared the game in the second half.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, have already been relegated, while Manchester City only need three more points to secure the Premier League title.
