He knows that, as long as West Ham avoid defeat by the scoreline they inflicted upon Watford on Saturday, they are through to the next stage of the battle, and insists:
"It is still a big game on Saturday; I know they have to beat us by four goals but you never know - we have to be on our toes and make sure we do it properly.
"If we play our normal game we will be all right - we can't sit behind the ball.
"I am not bothered who we play after that; I suppose I would rather finish at home but again, I am not really bothered as we are playing well enough at the minute to beat anybody.
"It is massively important to finish third to keep out momentum going for the playoffs; we have had three wins in a row now and we are looking good.
"It was a really good win on Saturday and the Hammer of the Year award meant a lot to me - it was good to get it in front of the fans."
