Time for a change

Valon Behrami insists West Ham United's final six Barclays Premier League matches can change the outlook of the whole season.

The Hammers have picked up just 27 points from their opening 32 fixtures, but the Switzerland midfielder has told WHUTV that all is not lost just yet.

Behrami and his team-mates head for Everton on Sunday seeking to end a run of six straight league defeats - the latest of which came in the shape of a 1-0 home defeat by Stoke City last Saturday.


"It was not an easy week after the last result," said the 24-year-old, who took time out of his schedule this week to take part in an event backing the Richard House Children's Hospice. "Obviously we are not happy with our situation but in training, I saw a good reaction from the team.

"We are looking for a good result at Everton, but we know it's not going to be easy. We need to find some good points away from home and then find a good result at home because the situation is very difficult.

"The team is all together. We have a good relationship with everyone. Everyone trusts the manager and wants to give a lot for him, because this situation is not easy. We know that. It's just that we have to give something special and something more than we did before.

"We can change the whole season in the last six games. If a small thing changes, maybe an own-goal, then it can change our whole season. We haven't been so lucky. I know we didn't play so well either."
