Europa League Watch: a good day for the Hammers

After a decidedly iffy weekend last week where West Ham picked up a string of needless yellow cards, Sam's troops will be looking to keep the cautions to a minimum against Man City and be ultra nice to the match officials as we hope to maintain our precarious position at the top of the Premiership Fair Play League.

With Liverpool likely to pick up a European spot through the front door, relegation threatened Burnley are the Hammers biggest rivals for the Europa League place. Today saw the Clarets travel to Goodison where the whingy Scouse crowd usually hector the referee into more than a fair share of cards for the visitors. And so it was today, as Burnley picked up two yellows and a red!

Let's hope we can avoid a similar disciplinary blood bath at the Moonies tomorrow.
