    THIS year's PFA Team of the Year will undoubtedly be littered with Manchester City and Liverpool players once again. The likes of Son Heung-min, Antonio Rudiger, Mateo Kovacic and Cristiano Ronaldo will also be in the conversation for a place in the side. 1The best XI we could make from players outside of the top six But there have been a host of players from teams outside the top six that deserve recognition for enjoying sensational seasons with their respective clubs. And we have made up a team worth £276million which we believe could challenge for a Champions League place. Starting with the keeper, Wolves shot-stopper Jose Sa conceded the fewest goals of any regular No1 outside the top six, so he is a no-brainer. Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella has enjoyed a remarkable first year in England, with Aston Villa's player of the season Matty Cash on the other side of the defence.

    A PREM record NINE top flight teams could take part in European competition next season. Quirks in Uefa’s qualification rules mean that more than half of the Prem sides who avoid relegation this term could end up in midweek competition. 2 2David Moyes' West Ham have a huge incentive to win the Europa League - a first ever place in the Champions LeagueCredit: Reuters England currently has seven direct places, with four Champions League slots, two in the Europa League and one in the Uefa Conference League - initially for the Carabao Cup winners. But if West Ham and Leicester, both now semi-finalists, go on to win their respective tournaments, it opens the way for an extra TWO places - as long as neither of them finish in the top seven. West Ham have the biggest carrot, knowing a victory in the Europa League final in Sevilla next month would earn them a place in the Champions League for the first time - as one of FIVE Prem representatives.

    MICHAIL ANTONIO almost never made it to the top — because his mum wanted him at church on Sundays instead of playing football. The striker went from turning out for Tooting & Mitcham United to being West Ham’s all-time Premier League top scorer. 2Michail Antonio has become West Ham's all-time top Premier League scorerCredit: Alamy 2The West Ham forward nearly quit football entirely aged 17Credit: Rex Yet after being turned away at trials by several EFL clubs, Antonio nearly quit football entirely, aged 17, as he struggled to support himself financially. Playing as a youngster for his local team was never guaranteed either — before a Tooting coach convinced Ant­onio’s Jamaican-born mum to allow him to skip church. Antonio, 32, explained: “I didn’t really like to be in my house. I liked to be out. I loved to be on the streets, running around with my mates. “I really enjoyed football but it was difficult as we played games on Sundays and my mum said, ‘No, Sunday is church day’.

    WEST HAM star Declan Rice has admitted he wants to play in the Champions League amid intense interest from various Premier League big hitters.

However, Everton just handed them a major blow in their hopes of Champions League qualification after their 1-0 victory at the London Stadium.

    A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Monday: ENGLAND West Ham can climb above Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool and move into the top four in the Premier League with a win at Wolverhampton. The race for the final Champions League qualification places took a twist over the weekend with Leicester and Chelsea — the teams in third and fourth — both losing and fifth-place Tottenham only drawing. West Ham will look to take advantage against a Wolves team which has little to play for this season. Everton is also still involved in the fight for the European places and is eighth, five points behind Chelsea, heading into a home match against Crystal Palace. SPAIN Barcelona has a chance to move within a point of Spanish league leader Atlético Madrid when it plays relegation-threatened Valladolid at the Camp Nou Stadium.

    DAVID MOYES says for the integrity of the competition the Premier League must NOT allow fans back on the last day of the season – even though it could benefit West Ham.

    LONDON (AP) — West Ham strengthened its unlikely push for Champions League qualification by beating Tottenham 2-1 to climb into the top four of the Premier League on Sunday. Jesse Lingard, rejuvenated after his loan move from Manchester United last month, scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 47th minute after running onto a pass from Pablo Fornals and burying an angled shot with his left foot. Tottenham had also conceded a goal early in the first half with fit-again striker Michail Antonio converting a loose ball from close range after his initial glancing effort was kept out by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the fifth minute. Lucas Moura pulled a goal back for Tottenham in the 64th with a header from a corner by Gareth Bale, whose impressive performance as a second-half substitute also saw him smash a shot against the crossbar from the edge of the area. Son Heung-min also struck the goal frame in stoppage time with an effort he knew little about that looped up over West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. Tottenham dropped nine...
    CHELSEA'S comeback victory over Leeds means they overtook Arsenal in the all-time list of Premier League wins. And now the Blues only trail Manchester United at the top of the pile. 6 6Olivier Giroud, Kurt Zouma and Christian Pulisic scored in the win over Leeds at Stamford BridgeCredit: Getty Images - Getty Goals from Olivier Giroud, Kurt Zouma and Christian Pulisic ensured Frank Lampard's side came from behind to see off Leeds. And the victory, which saw the Blues go top of the table overnight, was a significant one as they jumped ahead of London rivals Arsenal. It was win No584 in the Premier League for Chelsea with the Gunners just behind on 583. Ironically, Mikel Arteta's team started the 2020-21 season one Premier League win ahead of Lampard's. However, both teams remain well off leaders Manchester United. The Red Devils are a whopping 88 wins clear of Chelsea in second, with the comeback win at West Ham on Saturday victory their 672nd since the top-flight's reformation. That means even if Chelsea won every game for two seasons in a...
    DIOGO JOTA went from heartbreak to elation as his 85th minute goal secured Liverpool a 2-1 win at home to West Ham. The former Wolves man thought he had netted what would have been the matchwinner 14 minutes from time. Reuters 2 Dioga Jota finally had his goal – and the matchwinner PA:Press Association 2 The Portuguese striker finished off a brilliant Liverpool move But Sadio Mane was adjudged to have fouled Hammers keeper Lukasz Fabianski and the goal was chalked off. But less than ten minutes later the 23-year-old striker was smiling after a beautiful move saw him ping past Fabianski to seal the three points. Pablo Fornals had given a resurgent West Ham the lead in the 10th minute, but Mo Salah levelled things up from the penalty spot. And it was left to Jota, who has made an instant impact at Anfield, to lead Jurgen Klopp’s side to victory and to the top of the table.

    (CNN)Shock results, surprise leaders and goals galore. European soccer has seen nothing like it, despite -- or maybe because of it -- so many games are being played behind closed doors.A limited number of fans are allowed to watch games in France, Italy and Germany, but matches in England and Spain continue to be played without supporters in attendance.The English Premier League has been particularly volatile this season and continued to offer up surprises by the bucket load. There were 27 goals across the eight fixtures already played this weekend with a further two games to be played Monday.

    WEST HAM'S upturn in form has certainly benefited from the pace of Jarrod Bowen - the fastest player in the league on the weekend. Clocking in at a rapid 22.3 miles per hour top speed, the 23-year-old was even joined by fellow Hammer Issa Diop on the podium for the Premier League's quickest players. 3 In West Ham's 2-2 draw at Newcastle, the centre-back hit 21.7mph to sit joint-third in the division's weekend leaderboard. The Magpies were forced to fight back from a goal down on two occasions at St James' Park as David Moyes' side continued their fight against relegation. Having beaten Chelsea in midweek, the draw moved West Ham four points clear of the relegation zone. And speedster Bowen played a major part in both games, nabbing a pair of assists against the Blues before setting up Michail Antonio's opener on Tyneside. The striker has revelled in racing onto January signing Bowen's low crosses after darting down the wing on his supposedly weaker right foot. Since arriving from Hull for an initial £18million, the wide-man has scored once...
