Statistically speaking, safety beckons

West Ham have a less than TWO per cent chance of being relegated after picking up four points from their last two outings.

Last week's 3-0 defeat of Southampton coupled with a valuable draw at Stamford Bridge yesterday has lifted David Moyes side to 14th in the Premier League table with 34 points from 32 games - meaning that two more wins should be enough to guarantee survival.

And according to Euro Club Index, the Hammers are now only joint-seventh likeliest to be relegated at the end of the current campaign.

Hot favourites to follow West Bromwich Albion - who looked doomed with a potential survivial chance of less than 0.005 per cent - are Stoke City, who West Ham face in another vital relegation clash at the Olympic Stadium next Monday.

The Potters' chance of relegation stands at 85 per cent following their latest defeat at home to Tottenham last weekend. Meanwhile the final relegation place appears to be a battle between Southampton (53 per cent chance of relegation) and Huddersfield (44 per cent).

Crystal Palace and Swansea are both considered to have a six per cent chance of suffering the drop, whilst West Ham and Brighton & Hove Albion are level pegging at two per cent each - as the graph below indicates.
