West Ham could play their best football of the season in the next couple of weeks and still lose all of their forthcoming fixtures, according to boss Sam Allardyce.

The 58-year-old has guided newly-promoted West Ham to seventh following the first 12 league games of the campaign but his side are currently in the midst of a difficult run of fixtures. After facing champions Manchester City and travelling to Newcastle, Allardyce's side now face Tottenham on Sunday with a trip to Manchester United on Wednesday.

"We know we are in a very good position but this run of fixtures could cause us a few problems," he said.
