Manuel Lanzini had plenty to thank Marko Arnautovic for after his strike partner set him up for a sublime double at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
Lanzini notched the Hammers’ third and fourth goals as a ruthless West Ham team put the Terriers to the sword in Yorkshire.
Both were laid on by Austria international Arnautovic, who also scored himself to continue his fine run of form, and Lanzini was full of praise for his partner in crime.
He said: “It’s easy playing with Marko because he is a fantastic player. He has a good touch, good mentality and he likes to play like me. Together, we play very well.
“His assists were perfect and maybe we need to play more with me as No9 and him No10!”
Lanzini was also delighted with the performance as a whole, as the Hammers recorded their biggest away win since Boxing Day 2016.
He continued: “We played very well and we needed the win for our mentality. To win like this is amazing and we need to keep going like this.

“This game was good, not just for me but for everyone in the team.
“We need to keep going and train hard to stay like this, playing well to take more points.”
The Hammers were backed by a vocal travelling army of 2,300 fans and Lanzini had special thanks for their support.
He added: “The fans were fantastic, always. Wherever we play, they are fantastic for us.”
