‘West Ham STINK of a relegation team, they’re in deep trouble’ – Tony Cascarino tips Hammers to go down this s

Tony Cascarino says West Ham ‘stink of a relegation team’ and predicts the Hammers will go down this season.

More pressure was piled on manager Manuel Pellegrini on Boxing Day as his side suffered a 2-1 defeat to London rivals Crystal Palace.

That result left the Hammers 17th in the Premier League table and just one point above the bottom-three.

And things are unlikely to get any better any time soon, as they face second-place Leicester City on Saturday – LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on talkSPORT – before must-win games against Bournemouth, Sheffield United and Everton in January.

They will then face a run of two games against Liverpool and a trip to Manchester City before the end of February.

And Cascarino has big fears for the Hammers and their under-performing side.

“West Ham are in trouble, they’re in deep trouble,” said the former Chelsea striker on Saturday Weekend Sports Breakfast.

“Their form has been alarmingly poor and I have them to go down.

“I’ve seen some of their performances and they have been dreadful, it stinks of a relegation team

“It’s going to take a big turnaround to fix it.

“And with the uncertainty around with the manager and the captain Mark Noble showing that he’s totally unhappy with certain players in that team, these are worrying times for West Ham fans.”
