Cresswell excited by new arrivals

Aaron Cresswell says he is excited by the four new arrivals on transfer deadline day and hopes the Club enjoy a memorable final season at the Boleyn Ground.

After beating Liverpool 3-0 at Anfield, Slaven Bilic was left celebrating again when the Club enjoyed a great end to the transfer window bringing in Alex Song, Victor Moses, Michail Antonio and Nikica Jelavic.

Cresswell played with Song last season and knows the quality he will bring to the first-team.

The talented full-back is also relishing the chance to play alongside the other three arrivals and feels the squad is looking very strong and has strength in depth throughout the team.

Cresswell said: “There were four who came in on the last day, and we know Alex from before.

“But the ones that came in during the summer as well have been fantastic from the moment they walked in the door and hopefully the new boys can hit the ground running straight away as well on Monday (against Newcastle).

“We have brought four in and it definitely adds to our strength in depth.”

Cresswell is still celebrating the famous win at Anfield last week and says it was a day he will never forget – especially as most of his family were sitting in the Liverpool end !!

The Hammers managed to finally end 52-years without getting an away win over the Reds and the Hammers full-back says all the players are brimming with confidence over the international break.

Cresswell produced a superb display in the West Ham defence and was happy to put behind him the mistakes that were made against Bournemouth in the previous home game.

He added: “My dad used to take me to Liverpool games when I was younger and I used to go myself when I was a bit older.

“To turn Liverpool over away, 3-0 at Anfield was a great achievement and a real team performance.

“It was extra special because all my family were there, they were all sitting in the Liverpool end. They are all Liverpool fans, so it was a great day all round.

“We were so full of confidence after the game and we would have liked to have played the next day. But coming off the back of that victory at Anfield, where we hadn’t won in 52 years, it was a good day all round.

“I take full responsibility for the two sloppy mistakes I made (against Bournemouth), but that is where you know you have to be strong and you have to bounce back. To do it at Anfield was special.

“Every footballer has ups and downs and you have to take the good with the bad and be a strong player."
