West Ham need to improve their home form this season.

Speaking to the official West Ham website, Carl Jenkinson has urged his teammates to turn around their home form, and to stay optimistic about a high league finish this season.

Jenkinson said: “It is no secret we have been better away from home this season, but that is something we need to turn around. We have been picking up a good number of points away but we need to transform that into our home form. We need to stay positive as we are in a good position in the league. We have got to stay optimistic.”

The Hammers have won just two of five home games this season, whereas their away form consists of four wins from six games.

Although they have secured impressive victories over the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, Slaven Bilic’s side have also lost to Bournemouth and Leicester and home, and they need to bring some more consistency to their game.

Jenkinson has urged his teammates to transform their away from into better home results, and the first way to do that is stay optimistic that the form can be turned around.

The East London side take on Everton this weekend at the Boleyn Ground, and it is another game which could prove tricky for West Ham to traverse.

Their best results have come against teams who look to dominate games, allowing Bilic to set his team up to counter attack, which is when they look most dangerous.

However, Everton also play a counter attacking style, which means that West Ham will be forced to dominate the ball at home, and that is when they have brought mistakes upon themselves.

It promises to be an intriguing game at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon, and Jenkinson has urged his teammates to turn around the poor form they have shown at home this season.
