Carl Jenkinson tries to explain West Ham’s away form

West Ham United are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment.

West Ham United defender Carl Jenkinson has explained to the club’s official website why the team are playing so well away from home.

The Hammers have collected as many as 13 points from a possible 15 on the road in the Premier League so far this season, scoring 12 goals and conceded four in the process.

Slaven Bilic’s side’s last victory away from the Boleyn Ground came on Saturday afternoon, when they got the better of 10-man Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

England international right-back Jenkinson, who joined West Ham on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal in the summer transfer window, has explained why the team have been performing well on the road.

“I don’t know what the secret to our away form is but we’re just playing with freedom and we’re playing good football at the moment,” the 23-year-old told West Ham’s official website.

“We’re playing with confidence and we’ve got players like Dimitri who are producing the goods week-in week-out. We’re playing really well at the minute and we’re all really enjoying it.”

West Ham are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from nine matches, just four points behind leaders Manchester City.

It must be great for the London club’s fans, but how long will this brilliant run of form last?
