They suffered relegation last term but under the guidance of the highly-experienced Spaniard, they have made an instant return to the top tier.

For the Hammers, they have struggled on the field throughout the campaign after they moved into their new stadium in the summer.

Aside from recent positive results, Slaven Bilic’s team had been flirting with relegation as they are now more than likely going to spend another season in the promise land.

Off the field of play, both clubs and sets of supporters will be hoping the recent police raid does not lead into any serious matters for their club.

Nonetheless, with the season coming to an end both clubs will be looking to end their respective campaigns on a high.
