West Ham United defender George McCartney is determined for the club to finish in the top ten this season.

After three defeats on the spin there is a real danger the Hammers could be overtaken by bitter rivals Tottenham for a place in the top half of the table.

But left-back McCartney, 26, said: "We are all determined to finish above Spurs.

"We know what it would mean to us and to the fans. If we don't, it will be a major disappointment.

"We are still four points clear and three of our last four games are at home. We have to make them count."
