Matt Jarvis says West Ham United possess a steely determination to bounce back from defeat at Tottenham Hotspur at Manchester United on Wednesday.

The Hammers travel to Old Trafford determined to deliver a good performance and pick up a point at least from their clash with Sir Alex Ferguson's men.

Although there were disappointed faces emerging from the Away dressing room at White Hart Lane, that has now turned into a strong interntion to get back on track.

"We go to Manchester United and it is another tough game," said the No7, "but these are the games that we as players and as a team want to play in and one of the reasons why you want to get promoted back into the Premier League.

"We have had a good start to the season and we need to make sure we get some points again in the next few games coming up. We can do that. It was disappointing to lose against Spurs, but we go again now.

"We were obviously disappointed with the result on Sunday. We did create some chances and, for me, when it was 1-0 I thought we had a good chance of getting back into the game and it might have been a different story if we had got the next goal.

"I think maybe we didn't get into their faces as much as we hoped to. The plan was to go at them early doors and shut them down."

On a more positive note, Jarvis said the Hammers did not give up at White Hart Lane and could even have snatched something from the game if they had scored earlier or added quickly to Andy Carroll's 82nd-minute header.

"We still created chances for ourselves. We kept working at it to try and get behind their defence to get shots on goal, but it just didn't happen for us.

"Once we got our goal with Andy scoring, we started to get a few more chances and more crosses in, but as the manager said afterwards it was just a bit too late for it to count. If we had stuck one in a little earlier, the score might have been closer, if not somewhat different."

While defeat in north London was disappointing, the England winger alluded to the 19 points West Ham already have on the board and has high hopes of turning that into 20 or even 22 at Old Trafford.

"We have started really well and we want to keep this going. Unfortunately, you lose games. These things happen and it was against a very good Spurs side. For us, we just need to make sure we bounce back from this and go to Manchester United and try our best to do that.

"Points we already have in the bag will prove vital in these circumstances but we are determined to go to places like Old Trafford, put in a good performance and hopefully get something out of the game. That is the aim, to get some points, so we would be delighted with that."
