West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is confident his side can finish in a Champions League qualifying position this season. The Hammers occupy sixth position in the Premier League, just three points behind Manchester City in fourth.West Ham host Arsenal on Saturday at Upton Park with their opponents still in the hunt for the title and while Bilic expects the Gunners to provide a stern test, he believes the emphasis is on West Ham to attack. We are playing at home and make no mistake, we are going to do everything to win the game and stay in the race, Bilic said.And to stay high in the table, thats our aim. We know its going to be hard, of course its going to be hard, it is Arsenal. West Ham are playing their final season at Upton Park But we have almost a full squad back, they are fresh, we are looking good, and as I said we are full of respect for the Gunners. They deserve it, they are Arsenal and at the end of the day they are above us in the table.But again, we play at home and we are confident West Ham won 2-0 in the corresponding fixture against their London rivals in August with goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate.And while Bilic is upbeat on West Hams chances of securing another win over Arsenal, he is adamant his side will have to work hard to get anything from the match as their opponents have beaten Everton 2-0 and Watford 4-0 in their last two games. Dimitri Payet celebrates with West Ham boss Slaven Bilic Bilic added: Its about our form and our position in the table that makes us confident. That game was ages ago. But its nice to know, in the back of your mind, that we played them and beat them 2-0. But it doesnt have much to do with this game.The last few games they played with pace and skill and they are very lethal, especially in the last two games against Everton and Watford. Theyre in good form.It is a London derby. Its a big game. The season is approaching the end and its very important for them and for us. We are both fighting for a place in Europe, or from their point of view to be champions. They have a chance on paper but they have to win all their remaining games. Its a big game.We need three points too if we want to stay in the race for top-four or five. It should be a great game of football.The games are vital. We have a great but tough week against Arsenal and then a replay against Manchester United, then Leicester on Sunday. We are only thinking about Arsenal now, then we have three days to recover for Manchester United. We are not putting the league or cup in-front of the other. We are going to put out the best team we can. Also See: Wenger opted against Payet QUIZ: Top of the stats West Ham stats Kurt Zouma Jersey

The teams swapped seventh-round picks in this years, with the Eagles moving up five spots to land the 224th selection. The Bills also gave up a conditional draft pick -- either a fourth-rounder next year or a third-round selection in 2016. In landing Brown, the Bills filled a need for depth without having to address it in the draft. Hell serve in a backup role behind co-starters Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. The Eagles, by comparison, had what coach Chip Kelly called "a logjam" at running back. Brown was also regarded as expendable in Philadelphia because his side-to-side running style didnt fit Kellys offence. Kelly and Bills director of player personnel Jim Monos both said the trade had been in the works for the past month. Brown has 190 carries for 878 yards and six touchdowns in 32 games in two seasons with the Eagles. He overcame fumbling issues during his rookie season to finish with 564 yards rushing and four touchdowns in 16 games, including four starts. Brown sset the Eagles single-game rookie rushing record in his first start, when he had 178 yards and two scores against Carolina on Nov.dddddddddddd 26, 2012. He followed that up a week later with 169 yards rushing and two scores at Dallas. In Buffalo, Brown joins an offence that ranked second in yards rushing last season. "Yeah, I was definitely surprised," Brown said. "But I think its a great opportunity for me to come in and be able to contribute any way that I can. Im excited about the journey. And I cant wait to get started." This was the latest in a series of trades the Bills have made over the past month. On Friday, Buffalo dealt receiver Stevie Johnson to San Francisco. Johnson became the odd-man out in a crowded group of receivers after the Bills opened the draft by trading up five spots to select Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins with the No. 4 pick. Last month, Buffalo gave up a sixth-round draft pick to acquire receiver Mike Williams in a trade with Tampa Bay. On Friday, the Bills swapped second-round draft picks and picked up an additional fifth-round pick (153rd overall) in a trade with St. Louis.
