We'll be better than that, says Anderson

New signing Felipe Anderson insists that West Ham will become a far better team than that which was thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool on Sunday.

The Brazilian winger, who clocked in last month as the club's record signing started the game but was replaced during the second half by fellow new arrival, Andriy Yarmolenko.

Manuel Pellegrini used a further four new signings during the match - Lucasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Fasbian Balbuena and Jack Wilshere - but they were similarly powerless to prevent a convincing home win.

Yet despite the heavy defeat, Anderson maintains that the performance is not one that will prove typical of the team this season - a team which, he hopes, will go on to be a genuine force in this division once they've managed to gel.

We knew that the match was going to be very hard as their attack is really fast and they score a lot of goals," Anderson told whufc.com.

"We prepared for the match well, but this is a very new team and we still have a way to go to get to our best form. We have very good expectations for the season.

"This team wants to play beautiful football and, with a bit more time, all the new signings are going to adapt. The club made a big investment and now what we need to do is to work to make things go well."

The 25-year-old winger also revealed that he was delighted to get the opportunity to test his talents in the Premier League - and that he wouldn't take too long to get up to scratch.

"Its a league in which teams like to have the ball and are constantly attacking," he mused. "Thank God now I have the chance to be here, so Im working hard to adapt as quickly as possible and give my best effort."
