Despite Sam Allardyce’s side impressing in front of goal so far this season, Sheringham was quick to deflect the attention away from himself.
“It’s nothing to do with me,” he said. “We just brought a few new players in and had a fresh start in the summer.
“Valencia, Sakho and Zarate have all fitted in very quickly and we’re off to a flying start, especially after winning on Saturday.”
That win was the 3-1 victory at home to Liverpool; a result that proved West Ham will be a match for anyone this season with their new-look front-line.
Diafra Sakho already has three goals in four appearances since his summer move and he looks like being the constant goal-threat the Hammers were in desperate need of last season. But with Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate also at the club, the simple fact is Allardyce has options – and good ones, too.
Not that either he or Sheringham will be getting ahead of themselves.
“It’s very early days and we’re all delighted with where we are at the moment,” the latter said, “but we’ve got a long way to go to improve as well.”
