West Brom boss targets 37 points for safety

West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel is looking at four points from their remaining four games to ensure Premier League survival. Albion are just three points above the relegation zone, although they have played one game less than the three sides directly below them.

"This was the idea that I had of the Premier League - that it is the most competitive league in the world," said Mel.

"Any team is capable of beating any other team - look at Sunderland, who drew at Manchester City and then won at Chelsea.

"What we really have clear is that we need four points from the last four games.

"If we consider that West Ham (who are 12th) are safe with 37 - that's also what we need.

"Last year 36 was actually the cut-off point. I think 37 will be enough to keep us up."
