West Ham boss Sam Allardyce wants his side to use their last two games to push themselves over the 50 point barrier.

The Hammers currently sit in tenth on 47 points, with Allardyce hoping they can reach the landmark on Saturday against Everton.

We want to get over the 50-point mark. We're all hugely disappointed that we haven't managed it yet and we should have done it by now.

We could easily be in the mid 50s but due to a few lapses in concentration we're not quite there.

Hopefully on Saturday the boys will go out and put the chances that we will create away. We want to win our last home game and try and to enjoy the game.

We've been able to enjoy the majority of the season. We haven't brushed with relegation this season at all, not for a minute. We've scored more goals and got more points.

– Sam Allardyce

The Ecuadorian international missed three weeks of action due to the incident, but is expected to be back for this weekend's game with Leicester City.

“Basically, what happened is that about one or two o’clock in the afternoon, a cup that was on the toilet where I kept the toothbrushes and toothpaste fell on the ground and broke,” Valencia told West Ham's official website.

“I picked up the pieces and I didn’t realise I had missed a piece. Then, in the middle of the night I went to the toilet bare-footed and half-asleep and stepped right on it."
