West Ham boss David Moyes admits being at the top of the table brings with it new pressures.
The Irons meet Tottenham later today.
Moyes said, "We've not been in this situation at West Ham for a long time – certainly in the couple of times I've been here we've not been. It is good, but it comes with its added pressure as well, because it comes with people asking: 'Can you make the Champions League? Do you think you can make the Europa League? Where do you think you're going to finish?'
"But it sounds a lot better talking that way and having people ask you those questions than it does when you're at the bottom.
"Being at the bottom gives you a lot of sleepless nights and worrying about how you're going to pick up points.
"We've got a different worry because we want to pick up points to stay near the top, and I hope we can do that."
