Scott Minto goes back to his old club on Saturday insisting that West Ham can begin their revival at Stamford Bridge.

"I believe that if we carry on playing the way we are playing we can get a win," he says, "and it could quite easily turn into three or four on the spin.

"If we do that we will get ourselves out of it, and Chelsea would be a nice place to start."

Scott, of course, was making his first appearance for some time against Manchester City last weekend, and says: "The fans were pretty good on Saturday. I think they realise that, although things aren't going well, we are working our wotsits off - and as long as they see that I think they will handle it.

"No one likes to be bottom of the league, not us or the fans, but we have had a bit of bad luck recently, and I don't think the performances have been that bad, to be honest.

"As long as we are working hard I think the fans will stay with us."

And he explains that the supporters who travel across London this weekend will not see a West Ham side going for a point - as City did last weekend.

"I really feel we can go for the win. If we get a draw, great, but we are going for all three points.

"Manchester City played defensively on Saturday, though we had a lot of possession - but they are a good counter attacking team and with Anelka can always be dangerous."

Times have changed since Scott left west London, and he says: "I think there is only Jody Morris around now, and John Terry was a young lad when I was there.

"But I don't really care about who I play against because I just want to be in the team. It is an important season for me as I am in the last year of my contract."

He say he feels, and detects, no tension at the club, and adds: "For me personally, having just played my first game of the season on Saturday, it is not pressure at all. I can't speak for the rest of the lads but I believe they also feel that way."
