West Ham United left back Arthur Masuaku has told the club's official website that he and Felipe Anderson spoke a lot in training after being unhappy with their performances against Watford.

The Hammers made it two wins in a row on Saturday afternoon, beating newly-promoted Norwich City 2-0 at the London Stadium thanks to goals from Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko.

It's two wins a row for West Ham now, and they head into the international break having made a decent start to the season, at least recovering well from their opening day hammering at the hands of Manchester City.

 

West Ham will hope to make it three in a row when they return against Aston Villa, and players may be using the international break to highlight areas for improvement.

That seems to be what happened after the 3-1 win at Watford, as their left-sided players seemingly didn't make too much of their own performances.

Left back Masuaku and left winger Anderson impressed against Norwich, but Masuaku has now revealed that they were far from happy with themselves after the Watford win.

Masuaku claims that they felt they didn't defend well enough as a partnership against Watford, with Masuaku attempting to get Anderson to understand how they can work together.

Having spoken 'a lot' in training about this situation, they seemingly rectified the issues against Norwich, and fans will hope for more of the same moving forward.

“We enjoyed it, especially because we weren’t happy in the last game [against Watford] because we didn’t defend as well as we wanted,” said Masuaku. “We spoke a lot in training in the week leading up to the game to try to make things better and help him understand more how I want him to defend and help me, and how we can attack well together,” he added.
