West Ham United co-chairman David Gold wants to see the team play attractive football at home.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold has explained on the club’s official website the kind of football he wants to see the team play at the Boleyn Ground.

The Hammers will take on West Bromwich Albion at home in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and Gold wants to see Slaven Bilic’s side take the game to the Baggies.

“It will not be easy as West Brom had a good result against Arsenal last weekend and we know how Tony Pulis makes his side hard to beat,” the 79-year-old has written on West Ham’s official website.

“But we have enough talented players to break them down and we want to make the Boleyn Ground a fortress again and make us hard to beat.

“We also want to attack teams and have an attacking formation. You can see the quality from players like Zarate, Song, Lanzini who can unlock a defence.”

West Ham have not done as well at home as they would have liked to so far this season. The Hammers have managed to pick up just eight points from six Premier League games at the Boleyn Ground.

In terms of the home league table, the London outfit are as low as 10th - below Southampton, Chelsea and Swansea City.

It is clear that West Ham’s home form needs to improve if they are to challenge for a top-six finish in the Premier League this campaign.

Bilic’s side are sixth in the 'overall' standings at the moment with 21 points from 13 matches, just five points behind Arsenal, who are fourth and occupy the final Champions League spot.
