West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has said his side want to compete at the ‘top level’ after they beat Fulham 2-0 on Saturday.
The win at Craven Cottage was The Hammers fourth win in succession and Pellegrini says the club are ambitious in trying to reach the top.
Despite investing over £100m in new signings this summer, Pellegrini’s side enjoyed an indifferent start to the campaign but their weekend win see’s them now trail sixth-placed Manchester United by just two points.
“We are trying to reach the top level,” the Chilean said in quotes featured on whufc.com.
“Of course, it is not easy because we are just recovering from the bad start we had to the season, but at this moment we are just two points behind sixth position.
“Really, we must go game-by-game to try to improve what we are doing. It’s not easy to change so many things but I think the team is in the correct way.”
