West Ham are aiming for three wins in their final three games to give them a chance of Champions League qualification.

West Ham United striker Andy Carroll has told the club's official website his thoughts ahead of what he feels will be a very emotional week for the Hammers.

Carroll, 27, has been in fine form of late, banishing early season injury concerns with a run of goals, and he spoke to whufc.com about the week leading up to the last ever game at Upton Park:

"I know a lot of people are talking about our final ever night at the Boleyn Ground when we face Manchester United next Tuesday and it will be a tough game. It will be a crazy night with everything that is going on but certainly one we will never forget. I can't wait to be involved and I am sure it will be entertaining."

The East London outfit have enjoyed a fine season, including monumental away victories at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. They are also unbeaten in the Premier League at Upton Park since August, and are still very much in contention for a Champions League spot.

They face Swansea City tomorrow and Carroll spoke of how their focus is firmly on that fixture:

"We are fully focused on the next big match against Swansea on Saturday. We can still qualify for a European place and we need to do everything to win our remaining three games. Hopefully the other results with teams around can also go our way."

With Arsenal travelling to Man City on Sunday, at least one of the teams above them in the race for the top four will drop points, so a victory against the Swans would set West Ham up perfectly for their final home game against Manchester United on Tuesday.

Carroll finished up by saying how he still aims to reach double figures for the year:

"I would love to stay among the goals and hopefully get into double figures before the end of the season – especially with the year I have had, but to get double figures would be great for me."
