Reid wants Arsenal repeat

Winston Reid wants a repeat of the Hammers' performance at Arsenal when they travel to Liverpool
Winston Reid will use West Ham United's victory at Arsenal as inspiration for their trip to Liverpool this weekend.

The Hammers ended a long losing streak at the Gunners' hands by winning at Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the campaign, and now Reid wants to end the longer wait for victory at Anfield.

West Ham have a notoriously bad record at the home of the Reds, but having triumphed at Arsenal, Reid wants to take another big scalp.

“It doesn’t get any easier, but we all know we have to sharpen up a lot to get better,” he explained. “It is only three games into the season, but we need to wake ourselves up.

“We need to find the form we had in the first game at Arsenal, it would be nice to get a result like that.

“We have to go back to the training ground and try and lift the place, get some smiles back on our faces and get ready for that game.

The win at Arsenal just two weeks ago gave the Hammers a real feel-good factor to start the season, although subsequent defeats to Leicester City and AFC Bournemouth have sent the Londoners crashing back down to earth.

Now Reid says they need to focus on cutting the individual errors out of their game which have cost them so dearly. 

“We just made some really, really bad mistakes," he continued.

“It is not fair to single anyone out; every one of us had a loose pass at the back, whereas normally we are a lot tighter. If you look at it, it is by far our worst game.

“I absolutely expected us to win at 2-2, 100 per cent, but that doesn’t mean much when you go and concede another and then a fourth as well as a red card, it means nothing."
