West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola admitted he would have no problem being regarded as a lucky manager after his side won 2-1 at Fulham.
In the first half West Ham scored against the run of play through Carlton Cole. Matthew Etherington made it 2-0 on the break two minutes later and the half ended with Fulham's Andrew Johnson dismissed for his second bookable offence in stoppage time.
Zola said: "I don't know if we were lucky, I will leave it up to others to judge. But when you win you need a little bit of luck. Certainly I am not one who regrets luck."
He added: "I would like to have luck in every single game but we played a good match and had a few occasions in the second half to make it (the score-line) bigger. I would like to be lucky every Saturday.
"I have been working with this team for two weeks and they know what kind of football I want. They are doing very well and they will get much better.
"Winning away games like this will give them a lot of confidence."
