LONDON (REUTERS) - West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce believes his side's poor recent results are not a reflection of the quality of their performances and says the club's owners continue to back him despite increasing criticism from fans.

West Ham, who are 14th in the Premier League table, have lost their last four league matches and host Europa League-chasing Tottenham Hotspur at Upton Park on Saturday.

Allardyce has faced the wrath of the club's fans and was booed following Saturday's 1-0 defeat by West Bromwich Albion.

"Everybody keeps telling me about how we need to play and what performances we need to give, but in our last four games all of our performances have been very good," he told reporters on Thursday.
