Cresswell suggests specific reason for West Ham to be confident over remaining games

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has explained why he feels his side can be confident over the rest of the season.

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has explained to the club’s website the main reason he feels the side can be positive about the rest of the season.

The left-back cites a point about the club’s record this season as the main reason the Hammers should be confident heading into their remaining Premier League fixtures.

“Definitely. We’ve only lost two games against teams below us, so obviously it’s not an easy run-in but we’ve only got Man City of the big boys left,” he said.

“There’s no reason why we can’t finish higher in the league.”

West Ham have been superb this season when they have been the favourites heading into games.

They haven’t made many mistakes against the teams below them in the table and seem to relish the occasion and role of being the side expected to perform.

Where they have struggled a little bit is being put under heavy pressure by bigger sides who are able to keep the ball much more effectively.

When they get pinned in, Sam Allardyce has often found it difficult to get them playing again and to get them out of trouble.

It’s important that the Hammers don’t put all of their eggs into one basket and rely on beating the sides they are favourites against for the rest of the season.

The team needs to try and get an edge in all matches over the rest of the campaign and if they do that, there’s no reason why they can’t finish in the top eight.
