Mauro Zarate labels West Ham United fans 'crazy'

West Ham United have made a hugely impressive start to the 2015/16 campaign.

Mauro Zarate has told ESPN that West Ham United's start to the season has turned the club's fans 'crazy'. 

The Hammers are perched in third place in the Premier League table, and optimism levels at Upton Park have rarely been as high.

West Ham have claimed some hugely impressive results, with their attacking football drawing plenty of praise, and Zarate believes that the success has got everyone at the club excited about what the future could hold. 

"Everyone at the club is very excited, and our fans are like crazy," he said.

"We are playing very nice football and we expect to keep on doing it this way.

"We have to be aware of not losing points at home, most of all when we play against those teams that are fighting to avoid the relegation zone. If we want to be among the first teams in the positions, we can't lose points at home."

West Ham's latest win over Chelsea has increased talk of a potential top-four bid at the Boleyn Ground this season.

Slaven Bilic's side appear to be one of the most dangerous teams in the Premier League, and they have already claimed notable victories against the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal this season.

West Ham have an enviable forward line, and if they continue to play to the standard they have over the early part of the season, then there is no telling how high they could rise.

The Hammers' next two games come against teams in the bottom-half of the table - in Watford and Everton - meaning there is a great opportunity for them to cement their lofty standing over the course of the coming weeks.
