Paul Ince sings the praises of West Ham United and Slaven Bilic

West Ham United have put together a very strong campaign, and they are pushing for a top four place.

Paul Ince has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast programme on TalkSPORT that West Ham United deserve great praise for their season so far.

The Hammers have gone under the radar this term, but they are pushing for a top four place in the Premier League.

West Ham are currently sat in fifth place in the Premier League table, and they are hot on the heels of both Arsenal and Manchester City.

And Ince believes that Slaven Bilic deserves great credit for the way he is implemented his new style on the Hammers team.

“They’ve been fantastic,” the former Manchester United midfielder said.

“West Ham haven’t got the accolades they should be getting, because Leicester have done so well this season.

“I think Slaven has come in and changed the style. And he also has brought in some magnificent players, like Dimitri Payet.”

West Ham are currently just two points behind the top four in the Premier League table, and they are in far better form than many of their rivals.

The Hammers have lost just two of their last 20 matches in all competitions, and their good form is showing no signs of slowing down.

One of the reasons behind West Ham’s strong campaign has been the form of their captain Mark Noble.

The central midfielder has led by example throughout the campaign, and Ince believes he should be in the England squad for EURO 2016.

“I think Noble has been bypassed,” Ince added. “I look at people getting mentioned for the England squad, and I don’t see his name. This kid has been playing well for season after season. He gets forward, scores goals and he’s a captain.

“I’d be disappointed if he’s not involved at EURO 2016.”
