West Ham United's positive start to the 2019/20 has been encouraging to say the least according to winger Felipe Anderson who spoke to the club's official website.
The Hammers have secured three victories and one defeat to Manchester City in their five opening matches played so far and Anderson has been one of the impressive players in the team.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t start the season as we would have liked it, with that defeat at home [against Manchester City], but we knew we were working well, we had an exceptional preparation, so we knew the results would come,” he said.
“And now we have shown our good side in these victories.
“We’re playing intelligently and keeping possession of the ball and that makes easier to create chances and to convert them of course.
“Our base of players is still the same, last season there were a lot of new faces, so it was harder to mould them into a unit but this season we already have that base, and the new players have quality so the process is easier.”
Anderson reportedly completed eleven of his 13 attempted dribbles, involving himself in an assist for Sebastien Haller's debut goal against Watford where West Ham managed a 3-1 win.
“I have always said that West Ham have the quality to play against any rival,” he insisted. “Our idea is to be invincible at home and then try to get results away. So, we can play against anyone and we know it, but we also know that we have to go step by step.”
