West Ham United
West Ham's three-game winning streak changed to a two-game losing streak. First, it was a 2:3 defeat at home to Leeds, who had been beaten in the FA Cup a week earlier. Then, there was a bitter defeat at the hands of top-flight side Juve (0:1), who conceded the game's only goal on 93 minutes. As a result, the Hammers failed to return to fourth place. However, there are still chances. Last week, West Ham FC made a heroic escape from the FA Cup by narrowly missing out on a defeat to Kidderminster, playing in the sixth strongest division in England. Declan Rice tied the score in the 91st minute, Jarrod Bowen scored the winning goal in the 121st minute.
In January, Watford suffered their second dismissal of the season. The retired 74-year-old Roy Hodgson replaced Claudio Ranieri. Under him, the Hornets managed to play one game. His side drew 0:0 with Burnley. Therefore, the Hornets remained in the relegation zone, one point behind Norwich, who lost 0:3 just before the break.
