The Hammers currently sit sixth in the table, six points behind Chelsea in fourth - but also with a game in hand over Thomas Tuchel’s Blues.
Chelsea’s surprise home defeat to Arsenal in midweek has blown the top four race back open, and Liverpool took advantage with a 4-2 win at Manchester United on Thursday to close the gap.
With Chelsea and third-placed Leicester facing each other next week, West Ham will be looking to capitalise on more dropped points - but David Moyes will need three wins from three, starting on the south coast, if the Hammers are going to sneak back into the top four during the run-in.
