From the Boardroom - David Sullivan

West Ham United Joint-Chairman David Sullivan looks back at another memorable away victory

I cannot remember seeing the team have such a such a strong start to the season away from home.

The great thing is that we are scoring goals and the 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace means we have now scored 12 goals in just five games.

We managed to score three at Liverpool and two goals at both Arsenal and Manchester City so it has been a very good start.

I am sure the supporters would have been impressed once again by the performance from Manuel Lanzini against Palace.

We knew he was a fantastic player. Before he went to the UAE he was regarded as the next Messi in Argentina.

We see him more as a Luka Modric who scores goals. He is improving with every game as he becomes match fit. He could turn out to be very special.

Every single one of the main signings have made a contribution and over the season we will need them all.

We now have another big game against Chelsea on Saturday and the bookies make us 7/2 to win.

Chelsea are 9/10 on. I think the odds on us are generous with Chelsea travelling to Ukraine to play in the Champions League.

I would like to thank the supporters for their magnificent support. We have not done as well as I would have hoped at home, but with their support we can turn that around.

It’s a long season and there are 29 games to go, hopefully we can make it a very special season.

We are the second highest goalscorers in the Premier League and proud of the great football we are playing.
