With seven Premier League games remaining until the turn of the year and the season’s halfway stage, we take a look at how we think West Ham will fare up until the start of 2016.

Tottenham (A), Nov 22

The Hammers see this match as one of their biggest of the season, and having already taken three wins from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City this season, they will be in confident mood.

However, they come up against a Spurs side that is also playing very well, and we fancy a share of the spoils at White Hart Lane.

West Brom (H), Nov 29

Slaven Bilic’s side then host Tony Pulis’ Baggies at the Boleyn Ground, and despite the absence of Dimitri Payet for three months through injury, we believe they will have enough to take all three points.

With Andy Carroll getting back to full fitness and loanee Manuel Lanzini in fine form, they should have too much for their goal-shy opponents from the West Midlands.

Man United (A), Dec 5

The Hammers have lost on their last seven trips to Old Trafford in the Premier League, and you have to go back to 2007 for the last time they picked up points there –  a certain Carlos Tevez scoring in a 1-0 victory.

It what seems to be such a bogey ground, and with United looking particularly strong defensively, we can see that run continuing for another season.

Shoot Says: Lose

Stoke (H), Dec 12

West Ham’s home form hasn’t been as good as they would have liked so far this season, and their match at home to Stoke will certainly provide a stern test too.

The Potters are notoriously hard to beat, and we fancy Mark Hughes’ side to take a point from the Boleyn Ground.

Shoot Says: Draw

Swansea (A), Dec 20

The Swans may have struggled in the league in recent weeks, but you feel it is only a matter of time before they find some form again.

In a match between two teams that like to get the ball down and play, we think the spoils will be shared in South Wales.

Aston Villa (A), Dec 26

The Irons then take their impressive away record to Villa Park in the first of two games in three days over the busy Christmas period.

With Remi Garde’s hosts struggling for goals, we think the visitors will have too much firepower and will take the three points back to East London.

Shoot Says: Win

Southampton (H), Dec 28

The Saints are currently unbeaten on the road and notoriously hard to beat, and with Slaven Bilic’s side largely struggling at the Boleyn Ground so far this term, we can see a close encounter.

Three of the last five meeting between the sides have ended in draws, and we see another one in their respective last matches before 2016.

Shoot Says: Draw

Points: 30
League position: 9th
