Alex Song highlights what West Ham must change after Manchester United draw

Alex Song wants West Ham to improve their home form.

West Ham United midfielder Alex Song has told the club's official website that the Hammers must improve their home form after drawing with Manchester United.

Slaven Bilic's men went in to their game with United having earned a tag of being something of a giantkilling side, having beaten Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City already this season.

Three of those wins came away from home, and some felt that they could do the same against United - even without star players such as Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho, who all missed the game through injury.

The Hammers didn't get a win at Old Trafford, but they did pick up a 0-0 draw, limiting Louis van Gaal's side to just one shot on target in 90 minutes in an impressive defensive display.

West Ham continue to impress away from home, but their results in their final season at their Upton Park home remain disappointing.

Bilic's side have won just twice in seven home games this season, and those victories came against Newcastle and Chelsea, who are both struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table.

Speaking to the club's official website, Hammers midfielder Song said that he was pleased with the display against United - but called for his team-mates to help change the club's fortunes at Upton Park, having picked up just nine points in their seven home games.

"The fans were very happy and that’s why we have to play like this, and we just have to improve at home as well. In a way, we are happy to get a point," said Song. "We had a lot of opportunites to win this game but this is football – sometimes it doesn’t go in and no matter how hard you try, you cannot score. I am happy, but I think I could be happier if we won this game. It’s the same for the fans as well."

"We played very well, but for the future we just have to keep going and improve our game at home, because if we do that then we will get much more confident. When we play away, we are very good. That’s why we have to try to do the same thing at home," he added.
