West Ham United winger Felipe Anderson claimed his first assist of the season at the weekend.

Felipe Anderson has told West Ham United’s official website that he loves how much attacking licence that Manuel Pellegrini gives him.

Pellegrini is a huge fan of the Brazilian winger, who he brought to West Ham for £42 million last year (Guardian).

Anderson has started both of West Ham’s matches which he has been fit for this season, and put in his best display so far against Watford at the weekend.

The Hammers won 3-1, with Anderson getting an assist for Sebastian Haller during the contest.

 

And Anderson feels that Pellegrini’s tactics help to bring the best out of him.

"Today I was pretty offensive on my wing. I like the fact that the coach gives me that freedom and, thanks to that, I also gave an assist,” he said.

There are very big things expected of Anderson this season, as he proved his quality in flashes last term.

The West Ham attacker needs to add more consistency to his game if he is to become an elite level winger, but there can be few doubts over his talents.

West Ham have now taken four points from their first three games, after picking up their first win of the season.
