Upton Park manager upbeat about club’s fate.
West Ham boss Avram Grant said his team need seven points from their remaining three games to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
The Hammers lost 2-1 at Manchester City on Sunday to leave them bottom of the table and three points from safety.
“Our target is to take seven points. We will try to take all nine,” said Grant.

So there you have it, West Ham only need seven points, which given they have collected zero points from their past five games is surely a big ask. The Hammers face three cup finals as they take on Blackburn and Sunderland at home and an away trip to Wigan and if they come out of those games with seven points then they should be safe, but that is of course a huge IF.
To be fair to the East London side, they battled well at Eastlands yesterday and Grant will have to hope that Scott Parker will be back to fight in the midfield for the final games of the season as clearly the club misses the England international greatly.
