David Moyes hopeful Hammers can sneak into the Champions League

David Moyes remains optimistic West Ham can sneak into the Champions League

With four games remaining in the Premier League this season, the Hammers are closing in on a place in Europe.

West Ham manager David Moyes is hoping to qualify for the Champions League next season.

After beating Burnley 2-1 on Monday, the Hammers are chasing a top-four finish in the Premier League. The London club is currently in fifth place in the table, three points behind Chelsea, who hold the final Champions League qualification spot.

Moyes believes his team will need to win all of their remaining games to qualify for Europe's top club competition, and he will be disappointed if they do not at least qualify for the Europa League.

"I'm hoping that with four games to go people still talk about us being in the Champions League," Moyes said to BBC Sport.

"We want to keep going, we want to go right to the last day and see if we can sneak in. It will probably take us winning all of our games.

"I think if we made European football this year it would be a brilliant achievement. I might admit I think I'd be disappointed now if we didn't get there, but I don't think it would change how we feel about the season and how we're doing."

Moyes' side returns to Premier League action on Sunday as they host Everton.

Six days later, they'll travel to Brighton before facing West Bromwich Albion on May 19.

The Hammers will then play Southampton at home to round off their Premier League campaign.
