West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is preparing for a difficult run of Barclays Premier League fixtures, starting with Manchester City on Saturday.

The Hammers have lost three league games since being promoted last season and sit ninth in the table. But Allardyce could be glad of the 14 points already accrued as his side face the champions at the weekend before taking on Newcastle, Tottenham, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool in the coming weeks.

"We knew (about the fixtures) at the start of the season and that is why we were looking to get the points on the board that we did and like I say, nine games have passed by and we have had two disappointing results, both away (from home)," he said.
