Cresswell makes pledge to West Ham fans, suggests approach for last ten games

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has suggested the side will be going all out for a high place finish in the Premier League.

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has told London24 the club are determined to push as hard as they can over the rest of the season.

The Hammers are well placed on an assault on the top eight in the Premier League and Cresswell has suggested there’s a collective will in the squad to prevent the season from fizzling out.

“We don’t want the season to fizzle out. We want to get as high as we can,” he said.

“We are in a great position now so why can’t we have a nice push for the last 10 games of the season?”

The Hammers are currently tenth in the table on 39 points, three away from eighth place as things stand.

The side may have lost against Chelsea earlier this week, but Sam Allardyce will be pleased with the way the team fought back after a poor performance against Crystal Palace last weekend.

The side are chasing a ten point gap to get into the top six, which is probably a little too much of an ask for the side to achieve before the end of the season.

A perfect run of results could see them close that gap and secure a European place, which would be the ultimate aim for the players, the manager and the owners.

They can take heart from the fact Manchester City overturned an eight point gap to win their first title ahead of Manchester United three years ago.

The top eight is realistic, the top six would be perfect. The side are safe so they may as well go all out as Cresswell suggests.
