West Ham Players Target Europe

Carlton Cole and Freddie Ljungberg are both targeting a European place this season. Cole thinks that West Ham are capable of a top six finish,

"I really believe we're confident enough to push on now,", said Cole. "We're in 10th spot at the moment, but we're only a couple of wins away from the top six and, if we had got the win we deserved against City, we would have been even closer."

Ljungberg however is being even more ambitious and thinks West Ham could even achieve a Champions League spot,

"I looked at the Premier League table before the weekend, and we were only seven points off fourth place with a game in hand over every club above us apart from Liverpool, and we play them in our next home game.

"I felt we were capable of closing the gap and getting into the fight for fourth place, and I still think that is possible even though it has opened up to nine points now. A couple of wins can really get you moving in the right direction, and it is very tight behind the top three.”
