Sam Allardyce believes that West Ham have the right combination of ingredients to succeed in the Premier League.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has praised the "variation" in his team's playing style and squad after a positive start to the season.

Allardyce said that West Ham, who have two wins from three so far in the Premier League, have the right combination of players to survive in the top flight.

"The best way for a team to play is to have variation and we have shown that since the beginning of the season," Allardyce told the club's official website.

"We go short, we go long, we go forward, we go back, we go diagonal and we go in behind. It makes us very hard to play against and luckily we have the players like Ricardo Vaz Te and Mark Noble who can adapt.

"I really like the variation of the squad. We have a lot of talent - young, old, homegrown and foreign - and it all adds to the mix to form a very strong squad, which you need in this league.

West Ham face Norwich City next on Saturday.
