West Ham chief Karren Brady has claimed she wants her side to “damage” Liverpool’s hopes of a top-four finish the same way they destroyed Tottenham’s title chances.
Last week Brady’s Hammers beat Tottenham 1-0 at the London Stadium, effectively ending their title hopes, as Chelsea wrapped up the Premier League on Friday with a 1-0 win at the Hawthorns.
The Blues victory came courtesy of a Michy Batshuayi’s 82nd minute strike and means they go 10 points clear of Spurs, who have three games left.
Next up for Spurs is a Sunday afternoon clash with Manchester United at White Hart Lane.
However Mauricio Pochettino’s men will go into the club’s final ever game at the ground, knowing their title chances are officially over.
Now Brady has said she wants her side to destroy Liverpool’s chances of finishing in the top four.
Liverpool currently sit third in the Premier League, and know wins in their final two games against West Ham and Middlesbrough will ensure them of a top-four finish.
But Brady has issued the Merseyside club a massive warning ahead of their visit to the Hammers on Sunday.
Writing in her column in the Sun, she said: “Jurgen Klopp’s side visit the London Stadium on Sunday when we hope to continue in the role of destroyers of good hope.
“Last week we hammered a nail into the Spurs title balloon, this time we intend to damage Liverpool’s Champions League chances. That’s the way of competitive football.”
In her column, the 48-year-old also comments on Blackburn’s relegation to League One, Rafa Benitez at Newcastle and Michail Antonio winning the Hammers of the Year award.
