Never change: West Ham targeting the bloody treble

West Ham want to win the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup this season, according to joint owner David Sullivan.

The Hammers finished 11th in the top flight after a disappointing campaign last season.

Slaven Bilic has overseen a summer of heavy spending however, signing Marko Arnautovic for a club-record fee, with Javier Hernandez arriving from Bayer Leverkusen.

Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart have also joined, and Sullivan is aiming high.

“I think you need a bit of luck with injuries,” Sullivan told Jim White on talkSPORT. “At the moment, Mr [Diafra] Sakho is 100% good and that would make a huge difference to the season.

“The manager is a good manager, he just needs a bit of luck. We need a bit of luck with results and refereeing decisions.

“It is very tough to get into that top seven, and Everton have spent a fortune. The top four have really spent huge money. The Man United manager [Jose Mourinho] was building us up [recently] because he wants to say ‘we are playing a tough team in our first game’.

“After Leicester, it is possible. I realise the supporters say we won’t do this and that, but we start the season in three [competitions] and the ambition is to win those three trophies.

“I know it is very, very unlikely we will do that – and any one of them would please the board – but you have to think you can win anything and on our day we can beat anybody.”
