Sam Allardyce believes West Ham still need to get another win under their belt if they are to ensure Premier League survival, reports The Daily Mail.

The Hammers boss saw his side earn a 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday, but refused to accept safety until they have earned at least another three points.

West Ham were unlucky not to claim their first Anfield triumph in 50 years when James Tomkins’ header looked destined for the net five minutes from time before Lucas turned the ball away.

Speaking after the match, Allardyce admitted that the club still have a short way to go before they can plan on Premier League football next season.

“I'd like another three points,” said the former Blackburn, Bolton and Newcastle manager.

“It depends on the run of the teams below us because some are picking up two or three wins back to back. But we are looking up, not down.”

The Hammers currently sit 12th in the table, but are only six points above the drop zone, highlighting how tight things are at the business end of the Premier League this season.

Teams below them have a maximum of 21 points still available, so while there is still some way to go for clubs to mathematically ensure survival, another three would take West Ham to the hallowed 40-point mark – a general guideline to improve chances of survival.
