West Ham boss Avram Grant is confident his side will soon be back to winning ways. The Hammers entertain Tottenham at Upton Park on Saturday having collected just one point this season to leave them languishing at the foot of the Premier League table.
Grant insists his side deserve to be higher in the table following encouraging displays against Bolton and Chelsea, and feels confident ahead of Saturday's London derby.
"I am very optimistic about the future of this club. We know what we are doing, we have a vision about this club and I am optimistic about it," Grant told the East London Advertiser.
"If you have seen our games, this is not the place for us (bottom of the table), but we need to take points. We have a long, long season. I think it will be very hard, but it will be possible. But it is very frustrating when we play so well but don't take three points.
"After so many games from which we took zero points and we have played well, except in the first game - we played well against Bolton, we played well against Chelsea - it is good for the players to see that if we continue to do the right things, we can get results."
