Mel aiming for 37 points

West Brom boss Pepe Mel has predicted ahead of his side's "final" against West Ham at The Hawthorns this weekend that Albion will need four more points to guarantee their Barclays Premier League survival this season.

This was the idea that I had of the Premier League - that it is the most competitive league in the world.

Any team is capable of beating any other team - look at (bottom side) Sunderland, who drew at Manchester City and then won at Chelsea.

What we really have clear is that we need four points from the last four games.

If we consider that West Ham (who are 12th) are safe with 37 - that's also what we need.

Last year 36 was actually the cut-off point. I think 37 will be enough to keep us up.
