West Ham quietly putting together a strong run now that they've settled into the new system and gotten out of the brutal part of the schedule.
There was an expected drubbing from City, but otherwise despite a horrific injury situation (worst in the league probably) they put up:
Draw at Leicester
4-2 home over Burnley
Draw at Huddersfield
3-0 at Newcastle
3-1 home for Cardiff
And now going into a stretch of 6 straight against teams outside the top 9. Spending paying off, also Pellegrini is a terrific manager
This matchup can produce some very boring football if both sides play cautiously and hesitate to push the wingbacks and central midfielders into attack, as everybody on the pitch has a direct marker and each side ends up with three attackers, joined by the occasional foray from a wingback, working against seven players. I tend to think that will be the Mourinho strategy. I'm not sure what Emery will instruct his players to do.
