Former West Ham striker Marlon Harewood insists the team has top five potential.
Their initial early form under Manuel Pellegrini was erratic, but West Ham now sit 10th in the table with 26 games played.
Harewood told Love Sport Radio: “We have got some top class players at the club, there's no doubt about that.
“If you're looking at West Ham, I was saying the top five/top six teams, they should be there in my opinion.
“The players that they've got there, and how they performed against Liverpool and the top teams.
“You're saying where they should be thinking, I'm saying top five really.
“After the game against Liverpool, they can do it, so that's my opinion."
