West Ham United earned a hard-fought draw on Friday night, but still find themselves in serious trouble.
Hammers 'keeper Joe Hart spoke exclusively to the club's official website following his side's draw with Leicester City on Friday night, and shared how fired up Andy Carroll was in response to the vocal support from the London Stadium faithful.
The 30-year-old joined West Ham from Manchester City on a season long loan in the summer, but has found it difficult to show his true worth, with some of the shambolic defending in front of him making his job next to impossible.
With David Moyes now at the helm though, many fans and pundits alike are predicting that the Hammers will become more organised and stubborn defensively.
A trip to Everton on Wednesday night will be another real test for the Scot's side, but they will head to Merseyside in a far more confident frame of mind, following Friday night's positive second-half display.
And Hart explained how he and his teammates reacted in such a strong manner, following the backing they received from the home fans, when speaking exclusively to WHUFC.com:
“As good as the players are who we’ve got on our team, when we have their support we play differently. I’m not attaching any blame to the fans, but it meant the world to the players. There is steam coming off the big man [Carroll] because he's ironing people out trying to score goals. That's what they want to see and the quality will come.”
Wednesday night's trip to Moyes' former club will be of absolute paramount importance to the Hammers' hopes of excavating themselves from trouble, with the Toffees just two points and two places above them in the table.
And by the sound of it, Andy Carroll will be pumped up to the max, as he looks to help his side bring all three points back to east London.
