Cresswell - It was a great team performance

Aaron Cresswell played his part in another memorable campaign for West Ham United as they secured their highest Premier League finish since 2002.

Cresswell has enjoyed a number of memorable moments but feels one of the standout memories was the 3-2 victory over Everton back in March.

The 26-year-old will never forget the impressive comeback after his side were trailing by two goals but showed their fighting qualities to score three goals in the second half and come away with all three points.

Cresswell played his part in the winning goal when his pin-point cross picked out Andy Carroll who headed the ball into Diafra Sakho and his clever flick fell to Dimitri Payet who made no mistake striking the ball into the corner of the net.

The result was one of many famous victories on the road this season, but it was voted the best team performance at the end of season Player Awards and Cresswell feels it showed the amazing team spirit they have in the squad.

Cresswell said: “We were delighted to pick up the award. We were obviously 2-0 down and we needed the three points at the time.

“It is never easy going to Goodison Park and when we went two goals down it was made even harder but I remember Nobes putting the ball in for Antonio to get us back in the game and then Sakho scored the equaliser.

“I then played the ball into Andy who had been shouting to put a few diagonal balls into him in the final few minutes and he has flicked it into Dimi who scored the winner and there is no better feeling that doing that in the final minute.

“In the Premier League it is not easy to go two goals behind, especially at Goodison Park with the crowd. It was a great result for us and won us the Performance of the Season.”
