Slaven Bilic believes it possible for West Ham to qualify for the Europa if they replicate their exploits against West Brom.
The Hammers had a slow start away, but ended up claiming all three points after winning 3-0.
The Hammers have now surpassed their record points total in the Premier League, while a place in Europe’s secondary competition remains a realistic possibility as they sit above Manchester United on goal difference in fifth.
West Ham face Louis van Gaal’s men in between fixtures against Swansea City and Stoke City, and manager Bilic is targeting a strong finish.
“There are still nine points to play for and we are not big headed, but we have to say now that the realistic target for us is a European spot,” he said.
“It’s going to be hard because there are still a few teams who want the same and the gap is not big. All we can do is prepare ourselves for the next game and try to beat Swansea.”
