Aaron Cresswell believes Friday’s battling draw against Leicester City gives West Ham United a foundation to build from as new boss David Moyes looks to put his stamp on the club.
The Hammers travel to the boss’s former side Everton in midweek looking for their first league win since the end of September and Scouser Cresswell says Friday’s performance gives them confidence that run can some to an end in his home city.
“A draw is a little disappointing, but a point is a point and we’ll build towards Wednesday’s game against Everton now,” the left back said.
“The new manager has lifted the place, but we just need that little bit of luck now to get that win and push up the table.
“Friday gave us something to build on, and gives us that belief going into Wednesday. We pressed a bit more against Leicester, pushing them backwards and trying to get on the front foot We’re definitely going to go to Everton and look for the three points.”
The crowd were fantastic. It gives us that lift and with nearly 60,000 fans behind you it’s fantastic. The main thing is us giving them something to shout about
Cresswell also had praise for the London Stadium crowd, who got behind their team with fervour on Friday and played their part in getting the result.
He added: “Going a goal down so early, they could easily have turned but credit to them they were fantastic. They gave us a lift and I think there was a period of the game when for 15, 20 minutes nobody sat on their seat and they were all up pushing us forward.
“We know where we are in the league is nowhere near good enough, but the crowd were fantastic. It gives us that lift and with nearly 60,000 fans behind you it’s fantastic. The main thing is us giving them something to shout about.
“If we play like that and have that attitude I’m sure we’ll push up the league.”
