Winston Reid hails the quality of West Ham United's squad

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United have made an impressive start to the new campaign, and they are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table.

Winston Reid has told West Ham United’s official site that he can see the quality that the squad possesses every day in training.

The Hammers have made a blistering start to the campaign, and they have moved into sixth place in the Premier League table, as a result of their good form.

And Reid is loving linking up with his teammates at Upton Park at the moment, with the New Zealand international claiming that the increased competition for places in the squad is pushing every player to improve.

“I think you see that in training every day and everyone makes each other play better,” he said, when asked whether this was the best West Ham squad he has been a part of.

“Everyone comes in to work hard and be professional. The manager and his team around him have brought that into the club so it has improved us as players and we are looking to kick on.”

Reid has been with West Ham for over five years now, but there has rarely been a time when excitement at Upton Park has been so widespread.

Under Sam Allardyce the side made some good starts to the season, but they never looked as impressive as they have done under Bilic.

The Hammers have scored 22 goals in just 11 matches, and have claimed the scalps of the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea during the process.

Although West Ham lost their last fixture against Watford, optimism is still high at the club, ahead of their match against Everton at the weekend.
