Hammer looks for a big treble!

Issa Diop is back in the frame and looking for a brilliant end to the season!

The young Frenchman hasn’t always been at his best this season but showed he still has about him when playing in the 2-2 draw against Leicester City.

He’s probably unlikely to make it into David Moyes’ starting line up for the game on Sunday against Wolves with both Kurt Zouma and Craig Dawson playing well against Newcastle.

But he’s likely to be a significant figure in the squad for the remainder of the season and is looking forward to success on all fronts.

There’s a long way to go and many twists and turns on the way – that’s what we love so much about the game – and Issa isn’t ready to throw up hjois hands just yet as we slip to sicth place.

And speaking to www.whufc.com he said: “It would be easy to look at Sunday as a big game, given where we and where Wolves are in the league. But I think every game is huge now because we want to finish as high up the table as we can. With that in mind, every game is so important.

“They will really want to win this game as well because both teams are fighting for places at the top of the table. When you’re in that fight, you have to win every game. That’s what we want to do.”

After that slip to sixth he added he remains  confident that the team can rediscover the good form that initially led to West Ham’s charge.

He said: “It’s been a good season so far, but I also think we can do more and achieve more. We have been a bit disappointed with the last few performances because we know that we can be better than that.

Issa Diop: Every game is huge for us

“We are working really hard to get that level back. It takes hard work to get back to winning games each week and put on good performances, but we know we can do it. 

“We need to stick together and keep working hard. This is the only solution to getting good performances back and, with that, will come more wins.

“This is an exciting time to play at West Ham,” Diop added. “It’s exciting to be at Europe, in the round of 16, and we find out our opponents on Friday.

“It’s a big couple of months between now and the end of the season. We’re still in Europe, we’re still in the FA Cup, and we want to finish strongly in the Premier League.

“I hope, come the end of March, we can say we’re still in Europe, still in the FA Cup, and still fighting for those top places in the table.”
