West Ham moved into the top four of the Premier League with eight games to play and boss David Moyes is desperate to hang on to it.
The Hammers beat Wolves 3-2 at Molineux on Monday night to keep them ahead of Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton in the race to the final Champions League place.
And Moyes says: “Maybe I was thinking how good it would be to get into a position, but when you hear people talking about West Ham being in fourth, let’s be fair, you’d have thought nobody in their right mind would have said that at the start of the season.
“But we’ve got here and we want to prove them wrong now.
“We want to do a good job, we want to hang in, we want to be professional, we want to play well and score goals when we can.
“It’s magic, though! We keep it going. We’re in April now and we’re still hanging in there with the top clubs.”
Once again, it was on-loan Manchester United attacker Jesse Lingard who provided the spark for the Hammers.
His sixth-minute opener saw him finish off a run from his own half with a delightful dink over Wolves keeper Rui Patricio.
Pablo Fornals doubled the lead after 14 minutes and Lingard set up Jarrod Bowen to make it 3-0 after 38 minutes.
But Wolves hit back before the break through Leander Dendoncker and Fabio Silva’s strike 20 minutes from time ensured a tight finish, with Pedro Neto and Lingard botsing over West Ham’s time-wasting at the end.
