West Ham boss David Moyes is targeting two more wins to ensure his side secure their Premier League status.
He said: "To get 40 points is the biggest thing but we can't get 40 points at the moment. I wouldn't say it guarantees it because there are years gone by where it has not done it.
"But I think getting there normally keeps you up. I am keeping my target high, I am hoping to win 10 games and at the moment we have won eight games in the Premier League.
"If we can win 10 we would just about get the points tally up there. If we can keep the form going the ideal situation would be to go unbeaten towards the end of the season, I don't see why we shouldn't aim for that, try and get there.
"If we do I'd say that would give us enough points to stay up as well. The big thing is to make sure we get the points.
"It is a big game against Stoke and it is a big game for them as well."
