David Gold makes ambitious claim about West Ham, clarifies Alex Song's situation

David Gold believes West Ham can beat anybody in the Premier League.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has taken to Twitter to claim that the Hammers can beat anybody in the Premier League - and also added that Alex Song is ready to play.

The Hammers notched yet another away win on Saturday afternoon, with goals from Carl Jenkinson, Manuel Lanzini and Dimitri Payet handing Slaven Bilic's men a 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace.

That victory at Selhurst Park means that West Ham have added to their list of victims from away games, having already beaten Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City already this term.

Next weekend, West Ham face another of the big boys - but this time, it's at home. Chelsea may have struggled this season, but Jose Mourinho's men will still provide a stern test at Upton Park in a week's time.

One Hammers fan asked co-chairman Gold whether he thinks West Ham can beat Chelsea - and he made the ambitious claim that West Ham can beat anybody on their day, laying down the gauntlet to Mourinho's men.

Gold was also asked about the situation with midfielder Alex Song. The former Arsenal man returned for a second season-long loan spell with the Hammers on transfer deadline day last month, but an injury means that he has yet to play this season.

Now though, Gold has taken to Twitter to clarify the situation with Song, stating that the Cameroonian star is now ready to play.


Song would be a welcome boost for West Ham, and Gold's claim that his side can beat anybody will no doubt be aided by having a player of Song's quality back in the side.
