Bilic wants top four place

Slaven Bilic insists West Ham can finish in the Premier League top four this season.

The Hammers defeated title contenders Tottenham 1-0 on Wednesday night to move within one point of a Champions League spot with ten games remaining.

With the top four teams all dropping points midweek, Bilic is adamant his side can challenge for a top four spot, but has warned they will also have to keep an eye on the teams behind them.

"It is realistic now. We are one point behind with 10 games to go so we have a chance," Bilic said.

"But it's so tight and there are still a lot of games to go. Of course we are looking above us because we are very close to those places.

"We are also looking below us because there are teams who are queuing up. The gap is not big between us and ninth or 10th in the table."

Bilic will be without defender James Collins for the trip to Everton and the manager admits he will be a loss.

"Losing James is a big blow for us. He's been marvellous all season. He's a great player and a great presence," Bilic said.

"On Thursday it didn't look that bad but unless something very positive happens, he'll miss three games. He's being scanned, but it looks like he'll be back after the next international break."
