In contrast, West Ham United were seen as outsiders for a potential European spot after finishing seventh last season.

Speculation over new recruits has begun ahead of their final game of the season against Burnley on Sunday, and Bilic says he wants players who will improve his team rather than merely add numbers to his squad. He has a hip problem and has not played the last few games.

Adrian admits he wishes the season was not coming to an end now that he has finally found his way back into Slaven Bilic's graces.

Burnley will take on West Ham at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Bilic also confirmed that defender Winston Reid would be out for around 10 weeks after undergoing surgery on a knee injury. He been on the bench as an unused substitute five times in the Premier League this season.

With one game left to go in the Premier League this season, the Hammers have not been as consistent and assertive as they would have hoped like last year's campaign, now finding themselves sitting in 12 place.

"He can't play the last game of the season of course, but he played with the pain the last few games and then we chose to do the operation after the Liverpool game".

The injured Michail Antonio is West Ham's top Premier League goalscorer this season with nine goals.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has rejected suggestions that he will need to sign more leaders during the upcoming transfer window. "Most of the players are linked with West Ham, the big majority of those are rumours, there's no truth in them". If they don't have as good of a home record as they have done next season and they don't sort out their away form, I think they could struggle.
