West Ham can go as far as they dream to, says Pedro Obiang

The Hammers have been impressive under Slaven Bilic this season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang says they can go as far as they want to this season.

The Hammers have been hugely impressive under Slaven Bilic with a strong start seeing them beat the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool on the road.

They have continued that early season form throughout the campaign so far, despite a raft of injuries robbing them of their star players over the Christmas period.

There is talk that they could make it into the top four this year, and Obiang says they can go as far as they want to this season.

“Of course it would be great to qualify for the Champions League but we are not thinking about that at the moment,” he told whufc.com.

“Given our results, we can go wherever we want to, and if we agree on a target I think we can achieve it, that’s what we are capable of.”

West Ham as a club can go as far as our dreams allow us. We set our own targets.”

A big boost for West Ham will be how they performed over the Christmas period without their star players.

Manager Slaven Bilic managed to keep his side competitive and picking up points despite a number of injuries to key stars, with those results keeping them in contention in the top six.

With the star players now returning, they have returned to winning ways with two wins in January already, and will be confident of pushing high in the second half of the season.
