Nasri hopeful of top-seven finish for Hammers
Samir Nasri believes West Ham have the quality within their squad to finish in the top-seven of the Premier League this season.
The Hammers have only lost one of their last five top-flight games, a run of form that has seen them move up to ninth in the standings, just four points behind the two teams directly above them in the table, Wolves and Watford.
Former France international Nasri, who joined the club on a short-term deal in January, is convinced the Hammers have what it takes to end the campaign as the best of the rest and he has been impressed by the overall quality of Manuel Pellegrini's squad.
"It’s good for the manager to have many, many options because, at the end of the day, we all look to achieve the same thing and be in the top seven of the league," the attacking midfielder told the West Ham website.
"This week it can be me, the next week it can be another player. When I came in I played well, then I got an injury and now Manu (Manuel Lanzini) has come back and is performing well, as is Snoddy (Robert Snodgrass), so I just think we have to push each other every day to bring the best out of each other."
Nasri has made four appearances for West Ham since his arrival and he will be hoping to add to that tally when the Hammers visit struggling Cardiff this weekend.
