Cresswell aiming for top ten

Aaron Cresswell says that there's no reason why West Ham can't finish in the top half of the Premie League this season.

The 28-year-old says that West Ham are determined to continue their (three match) unbeaten run, even though United's next opponents are current leaders Manchester City who have won ten and drawn two of their 12 league matches so far.

"Its still early doors but we want to keep our momentum going and really push for the top half of the table," he told the club's website. "Theres a two week break now and we want to continue it when we get back to work.

"Weve had a good run and wed like to continue that. We will come back ready for Manchester City. We dont want to look over our shoulders. We want to look up. We want to push on and see how far we can go."

And the defender was also full of praise for Felipe Anderson, whose 74th-minute goal ensured West Ham didn't leave Huddersfield empty-handed at the weekend.

"It was a good goal and hes done that for us in the last couple of games,2 added Cresswell. "Hes scored a few goals now and hopefully he can keep that going. Were 11 into the season and over the last few, hes been really good."

Meanwhile the Brazilian admitted to being pleased at his recent run of good form - although he was disappointed that the team were unable to turn one point into three at the John Smith's stadium.

"Im very happy to score, to gain more confidence as a result and to be able to help the team get points," he said. "A point away from home perhaps wasnt what we wanted, but the circumstances of the game means well take it.

"Unfortunately we couldn't get the victory, so despite having scored Im not entirely happy. I always think of the group first and winning is the most important thing regardless of who scored, but it was satisfying to contribute as well."
