Defender wants more of the same after Queens Park Rangers shut out
Aaron Cresswell hopes the weekends shut out against QPR was a sign of good things to come from the hammers.
Although they have been in good form going up the ladder this season, West Ham’s’ defensive solidity has not been consistent at times over the first 9 weeks of the current campaign.
But sweet victory over the QPR married a goalscoring onslaught with a meanness at the back and the summer signing from Anglian Ipswich Town wants that to be the case on a regular basis.
He is delighted with how he has settled in since making the move from Portman Road and would love to keep the Hammers in the Barclays Premier League’s top ten.
He explained: “It’s always nice to get a win with a clean sheet as well. That was our first one this season, so it was important to go into the international break with the 3 points to push us further up the league table.
“On Sunday we went 1-0 up and then controlled the game in the first half. Of course it helped to score the early goal. It was also the same when we played Liverpool, we got the two early goals in that day and it was the same kind of situation against Queens Park Rangers.
“I thought the whole team were excellent on the weekend. We controlled the most of the match very well in the first half and, although they had a couple of good spells in the first 10 minutes after half time they changed their formation, overall we deserved to win the match.”
