West Ham United recorded a 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in their most recent outing.

Slaven Bilic has told the London Evening Standard that he was quick to praise his West Ham United team for setting their Premier League points record, by beating West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns last weekend.

The Hammers ran out 3-0 winners over Tony Pulis’ side, as they strengthened their position in the top six.

And even though West Ham have never accumulated more points in a Premier League season than they have this time around, Bilic is keen for his side to ensure that they don’t take their foot off the gas.

"It's a record for West Ham - I said it to the boys - they should be proud," Bilic said.

"But there are still three games to go, we're in a good position and there's no stopping.

"With Manchester United it's very open. But with Arsenal and Manchester City it's not very likely.

"Our target - now it's realistic to qualify for Europe. All we can do is go game by game. It's all in our hands.”

West Ham are currently sat in sixth place in the Premier League, after racking up 59 points from their 35 matches to date.

Their nearest rivals in the battle for a top six place are Southampton, who are sat on 57 points.

West Ham also still have an outside chance of claiming a spot in the Champions League qualification spaces.

As things stand they are five points behind Manchester City, but they do have a game in hand on Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

West Ham’s remaining fixtures this season come against Swansea City, Manchester United and Stoke City.
