West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson, who is currently on loan from Arsenal, is looking forward to tomorrow’s Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion.

West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson is confident that he and his teammates can pick up all three points from the Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion.

The Hammers will take on the Baggies at The Hawthorns on Tuesday, and will head into the game on the back of a 1-0 home win against Newcastle United.

It was West Ham’s first victory in November, and Jenkinson, who is on loan from Arsenal, is keen on building on it.

The 22-year-old defender admits that winning against West Brom will not be easy, but the England international is confident of kicking off the new month on a positive note.

“We're going to have to be on the top of our game if we're going to go there and get a result,” West Ham’s official website quotes Jenkinson as saying.

“But the way we're playing at the moment and the confidence we've got in the side, we're more than capable of doing it."

Jenkinson struggled with injuries at the start of the season, but he is now an important player in Allardyce’s team.

In 10 Premier League appearances for the Hammers, the youngster has created five chances, while having a 81% pass accuracy and a 50% shot accuracy.

Allardyce is impressed with the full-back’s performance so far this season and is quoted as saying by West Ham’s official website: “I think Carl has done superbly well too.

“The defensive stability we have now with both Carl and Aaron (Cresswell) plus their ability going forward is a big improvement for us. They both like getting on the ball which helps to put us on the front foot.”
