West Ham United drew 2-2 with Leicester City on Sunday.

West Ham United’s Aaron Cresswell says the 2-2 draw with Leicester City on Sunday shows how his side are still focused on finishing the season as strongly as possible, the London Evening Standard reports.

Following three successive draws in the Premier League and a FA Cup exit to Manchester United, some felt that the Hammers’ season was petering out with the top four looking increasingly unlikely.

But regardless of their current position, Slaven Bilic’s side went for all three points against league leaders Leicester and only a debatable last-minute penalty denied them.

Speaking to reporters, Cresswell has assured reporters that the East London club’s season has not finished yet and the players are focused on finishing as high as possible.

We had the defeat against Man United in the FA Cup, but the draw with Leicester shows that our heads haven't gone down," the left-back explained to the London Evening Standard.

"Our season's not finished yet. We're going to keep pushing and finish as high as we can."

The draw at the King Power Stadium leaves West Ham in sixth position in the table, seven points adrift of Manchester City after they claimed a 3-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

West Ham had a potential top four spot in their own hands, yet some controversial officiating and poor decisions have gone against them over the past few weeks which has seen them fall off the pace.

Up next for the Hammers is Watford at home, a game Bilic will be desperate to win after his side put in one of their most disappointing performances of the season in the reverse fixture at Vicarage Road.
