West Ham United head coach Slaven Bilic insists there is no specific target for the Hammers this season after they beat Sunderland 1-0 on Saturday the reach their highest Premier League points total after 27 games.

Michail Antonio’s first-half strike, cutting inside and whipping a low shot beyond Vito Mannone into the far corner, settled the tie and saw the Hammers reach 43 points – their highest total at this stage since 1992.

The win, which means West Ham are unbeaten in their last 13 at Upton Park, leaves Bilic’s side sixth in the Premier League – four points shy of the Champions League places.

“We want to play entertaining football for the people to enjoy and that should improve because we are improving. It should also get us high up the table, where? I don’t know,” said Bilic, speaking ahead of Wednesday evening's clash at home to Tottenham Hotspur.

“We try to win every game, no matter who we play. There’s a long way to go this season. OK, for now, 43 points means we are in a good position.

“The only focus is to finish as high as possible. We don’t have any other goal than that, no specific target.

“Of course, if you said at the start of the season we would be fifth, of course I would take it. But now we are here, we can relax we need to continue to fight every game because every game is tough, and there are a lot of teams near us.”

Antonio's goal was his third in as many games at Upton Park. The former Nottingham Forest winger marked his strike by breakdancing.

Speaking to the club's website after, he explained the eye-catching celebration.

“I watched The Simpsons Movie the other day and I saw Homer do it, and I thought it looked hilarious so I’ll do it if I score," said Antonio.

“It was all planned. I told Nobes (Mark Noble), I told Reece (Burke) – I told all the boys – and they said no way I’d do it, but I did. I think I pulled it off!"

West Ham go to Everton on Saturday.
