Nolan thinking of Premier League survival

Kevin Nolan has called on his West Ham team mates to prove their critics wrong and turn the tables around to secure their Premier League status.

West Ham are 18th in the Premier League ahead of next week’s trip to high-flying Chelsea and manager Sam Allardyce has targeted 22 points from the remaining 16 games for his side to retain their top-flight status.

“We’ve got one focus and that’s just to stay in the Premier League,” Hammers captain Nolan said on

“There are going to be so many battles now, from now until the end of the season.

“We’re firmly up for it and we’re looking forward to it. I’m relishing it and hoping to prove a lot of people wrong come May.

“There’s lots of hard work to be done, from now until Chelsea, then on to the next game and until the end of the season. One thing we’ve got to do is stick together, keep that camaraderie going, keep the unity and togetherness.

“It’s going to be a load of battles now and hopefully we’ll enjoy it and win the war come the end of the season.”
