West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce insists that he is "not nervous" about his side's current position in the Premier League table.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has insisted that he is "not nervous" about the team's position in the Premier League table.

The 16th-placed Hammers are currently above the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference following Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Norwich City.

Allardyce is now eager for his side to put their recent woes behind them and start picking up wins.

"I'm not nervous about the league position," he told the club's official website.

"I'm concerned that history tells you it's not the position that matters, it's the points total you have against games you've played and at present our points total is less than the games played. It's very dangerous.

"We can't keep saying we're playing well but not getting results. Everyone at this club is being paid to win and we're not winning the games we should be winning. We've got to get back to winning ways as quickly as we can."

West Ham's next match in the Premier League is at home to London rivals Chelsea on November 23.
