West Ham are capable of top four finish

Carl Carl Jenkinson reckns the Irons are capable of a top four finish but acknowledges it is a very tough ask.

He said: We’ve beaten the clubs that you would expect to be in the top four , it’s a thing we are capable of but it is a very tough ask.

“Finishing in the top four is almost a trophy in itself at times, it’s very difficult to get into and it’s such an achievement if we do.

“In terms of the players we have, I think we are capable of doing it, it’s not something the club’s done before in recent years. So it’s a very tough ask and I wouldn’t want to put pressure on ourselves by saying we definitely can, but it would be a good achievement if we could.”

“We just have to continue doing what we are doing and playing with the confidence and freedom that we have been playing with. If we do that, we’ll get a lot of wins and a lot of points.

“It’s a bit too early to start talking about the Champions League, it’s a very tough ask but never say never.”

Jenkinson added: “With the new manager everything’s changed in quite a few different ways, with no disrespect to Sam – he did fantastic for the club.”

“Slaven has come in, the training’s very intense and quite a few things have changed. Obviously with the players he’s brought in and I think there’s an awful lot of quality in the squad.”

“Obviously there’s been a few changes with personnel but they’ve been positive ones.”

He told talkSport:“We’ve got some great results against the big clubs away from home this year. At those sort of grounds you’ve got to sit in and defend well.

“We’ve got such pace on the break where I think it’s suited us to be honest. In those games we’ve defended really well. Moses, Sakho, Payet, Lanzini – they are very good players on the break and that has suited us down to the ground.”

  1. apparently it’s a very tough ask…. so tough in fact that it’s be mentioned 4 times

  2. When you think about it, Three points taken from one of the top teams especially away from home is three points gained on most of the other teams in the league. Which means with Arsenal Liverpool man city we have gained nine points that most other teams won’t get. That has already made a massive difference to our season. Without those wins we would be looking at a pretty dismal picture at the moment with only one win at home against one of the bottom teams. And who would have thought we would need to beat three of the big boys away from home to stop our season being a disaster? That’s why the Chelsea game on Saturday is the biggest most defining game of the season so far. Because we have to show we can do it at home. We have to start winning at home. If we can do that we can turn our last season at Upton Park into a celebration.

  3. Slow down Jenks. P!ss off jam ragbag!
