West Ham midfielder Mohamed Diame says his team are focused on securing Premier League survival.

The Senegalese player has said West Ham are in good position to avoid the drop.

"Things are good amongst the squad," Diame told the club's official website. "After the game against Everton, I think it was important to have some rest and a break to come back here and start again and try to find the win again.

"Now, we are back to league action and we are in a better position than a few months ago, but we want to keep picking up points."

West Ham owner and chairman David Gold elected not to sack manager Sam Allardyce when the club was in dire straights earlier in the season, despite calls from some fans to do so.

The decision paid instant dividends for the Hammers and after a series of wins they are currently positioned 10th in the Premier League and stand six points above the relegation zone.

However, Diame insists West Ham can keep improving and he will do all he can to help the team pick up points before the season's close.

He added: "We just need to keep going and need to make sure we take as many points as possible by the end of the season."

Diame joined the Hammers in 2012 and had a run of impressive performances but has been unable to replicate that form for most of this season.

The midfielder believes his team can travel to Stoke and win at the weekend, despite Stoke recently beating Arsenal at the Britannia Stadium.

"Of course we can win there again, but Stoke did well in their last (home) game by winning against Arsenal, so we need to go there and try to give our best and come back with the win," he concluded.
