Aaron Cresswell picks out West Ham United's best win this season

West Ham Upton Park

The 25-year old has picked his favourite from a string of high-profile wins.

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell has singled out Saturday’s win over Chelsea as the Hammers’ best so far this season.

Slaven Bilic’s men grabbed a late winner, via an Andy Carroll header, to keep up their fantastic form against the league’s top sides and send the feel-good factor at Upton Park through the roof.

“I think it was our best win, for obvious reasons,” said Cresswell, in an interview on whufc.com. “We are sitting third in the league after ten games.

“Don't get me wrong, it is still early doors but I think we were fantastic, especially first half. They got the goal back early on in the second half and then after they scored, I think we controlled the game after that and obviously got the winning goal.”

“In the first half, I thought we were excellent. We didn't give them any time on the ball, we were always in their faces, we pressed and when we got the ball, we attacked in numbers,” he added.

The Hammers’ victory over a struggling Chelsea side served as a real marker to the rest of the division that the early season form of the East London club isn’t a flash in the pan.

Their wins over four of the Premier League’s biggest teams in their first ten games has proven Bilic’s men to be the real deal but keeping their squad in top condition could be an issue over the course of the season.

West Ham boast an excellent first XI but the quality dips in certain positions beyond that, and losing Dimitri Payet for any length of time would prove costly.

Alex Song and Enner Valencia will provide a welcome boost on their return from injury however, and barring a major catastrophe, the Hammers should find themselves at the right end of the table from here on out.
