Aaron Cresswell has commented on the progression of his season.
The left-back said: “I can’t believe how quickly it has gone and I have played more than 30 games. I didn’t think it would go quite this well. I’ve just kept my head down from the minute I walked in and tried to play as many games as I can this year.
“Obviously it’s gone well on the pitch for me personally and the club, sitting in ninth position.”
Cresswell is correct to believe his season has gone on in a promising manner, with 35 appearances for the Hammers to his name - with one goal and four assists registered in that time.
Considering it is his debut Premier League season, the 25-year-old has been a revelation. He is arguably the East London club’s most consistent performer, and alongside Diafra Sakho and Adrian, should be one of three names in the running for Player of the Year.
Cresswell was even unlucky to miss out on a call-up to the senior England squad for the Three Lions last round of international fixtures, with many tipping him for country honours in the future.
Having signed a five-year contract when his transfer from Ipswich was agreed, the Hammers have all-but guaranteed that Cresswell will be a West Ham player for the foreseeable future.
Regardless, the left-back’s performances have increased interest in him from Premier League rivals, and both Manchester City and Chelsea have been linked with Cresswell ar various points this season, as per the Standard and ESPN respectively.
