West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola says he is proud of the way his team has performed so far this term.
The Italian has led the Hammers to be in the running for European calculations next season and is very pleased with his players.
"A season, especially like in this case, someone comes when the season has already started and he wants to impose his own ideas and it takes time," he said.
"I never for one second lost my belief in the team and in the work that I'm doing. So we're now competing for different levels and I'm very pleased.
"Everyone here has worked very hard for this and everything we are getting is totally deserved and I feel so proud of it."
