Aaron Cresswell has admitted that he is looking over his shoulder at the relegation places again.
The left back was disappointed with the awful display at Brighton yesterday saying: “The lad [Izquierdo] put one in the top corner in the second half and to be fair to him, it’s a great finish, but we didn’t react well to that. We didn’t look like scoring in the second half
“We had a bad start but we had spells in the first half where we did well and had a few chances. We didn’t get the rub of the green though and second half we didn’t react to the set-backs we suffered.”
And with the Hammers now just three points above the drop-zone he added: “It’s really tight down there. You win one and lose the next week, and you’re right back in it.
“We need to stick together and pull in one direction now and go into every game and try to get maximum points. We need to keep pushing up.
“All season has been up and down and when you lose, you think you’re out of it. But we have to focus on each game as it comes and try to push up for the rest of the season.”
