Pablo Fornals: We’re still in a good position and we will to fight to stay there

Pablo Fornals says West Ham United will get over the setback of Sunday’s narrow defeat to Everton by putting all their efforts on the training ground into ensuring a strong end to the campaign.

The Hammers have three Premier League games left in the 2020/21 campaign – away at Brighton & Hove Albion and West Bromwich Albion, before finishing at home against Southampton – and Fornals believes they can still achieve their goals.

While the loss to Everton hurt, especially as his team could not turn almost 70% possession in the contest into goals, the No18 felt there were positives to take from the afternoon.

And with that in mind, he is sure they possess the ability and attitude to ensure similar performances in the run-in would result in victories.

Every game will be a fight until the end and we just have to play as we did on Sunday but take our chances

“The feeling on Sunday was one of frustration, because I think we did more than them in the game – and did well enough to win – but obviously they punished us for our mistakes and that’s football,” he explained.

“We apologise to our fans, because it was a great chance for us to keep on our winning ways and good spot, but there are still more games to the finish and we have the opportunity to fight for ourselves.

“We are in a good position, so we want to win and we want to stay there.

“I’m proud, because if we play like we did today, but just scoring our chances, we’ll be comfortable [in achieving what we want to at] the end of the season.

“Obviously, until the end every game will be a fight. Every team is fighting for something, but we just have to try to play like Sunday and score our chances.”
