West Ham United boss Avram Grant is convinced they go into their derby with Tottenham in prime form.
Grant is confident his resurgent side can climb off the bottom by starting to accumulate the points he feels their displays so far have merited.
The manager said: "We've got another hard game coming up against Tottenham but it's one we're really looking forward to. I'm optimistic because you can see from our performances that we're making progress.
"We're not a bottom-of-the-table side but we have to show that's the case by picking up points and we're confident we'll start to do that soon.
"This win against Sunderland has been coming and it's been frustrating because we've played well so far but not taken any points until the Stoke game."
