West Ham’s Avram Grant targets seven points for safety
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.
Their next two games are against Blackburn and Wigan – two of their relegation rivals – before they host Sunderland on the final day.
“Our target is to take seven points. We will try to take all nine,” said Grant.
West Ham have not picked up a point from their last five games, a run which has left them rock bottom with 32 points from 35 games and trailing 17th-placed Blackpool by three points.
And on Sunday they initially appeared to be in danger of of losing by a heavy margin as City ran riot in going 2-0 up inside 20 minutes.
