Cresswell’s call after massive win

cresswellCandHAaron Cresswell is determined there’s no let up in the Hammers progress after we hit 11th spot following the fabulous victory over Huddersfield Town.

It was the kind of confidence boosting win so badly needed with Marko Arnautovic and Manu Lanzini so influential in the 90 minutes.

Cressie was back in the side after missing the previous two games through injury and was very pleased to have played a part in a match which gave us our first ‘double’ of the season.

He said: “It was a good game to come back in for. It was an important one, so to get a 4-1 win away from home is massive. Some of the goals we scored were fantastic.

“It was just eleven seconds after half-time that we got the second goal and it was a great finish from Marko. He was on fire, scoring one goal and setting the other three up. You can’t ask for any more.

“The link-up play between him and Manu, especially in the second half, was great to look at. Watching them from behind, passing and moving, running in behind and Manu taking the space up, was fantastic.

“We can’t focus on teams below us, we need to focus on ourselves going into games like Saturday’s and collecting the three points.

“We’ve got some good games coming up that are winnable and we need to keep on getting those points.

“It’s a cup game next, another good game for us, and the FA Cup is important for us. You want to progress as far as you can, but you also want to survive in the Premier League. We’re on a good track at the minute and we need to keep it going.”
