Big Sam aiming for top ten

Sam Allardyce has put the trials and tribulations of last year behind him as he targets a top-10 Barclays Premier League finish this campaign.

I would take 10th or better - I think we have got to aim at least at that position.

If we score more goals than last season then it is achievable for us. If we can do the same as last season from a defensive point of view, with 14 clean sheets, then 50 goals will be enough for us.

We scored 40 goals last year, 46 the year before, so if we can hit the 50-goal mark I think that will be enough to take us into the top 10 or better.

– West Ham manager Sam Allardyce
