Aaron Cresswell cools Champions League talks but thinks West Ham United can repeat Liverpool’s result against Chelsea and pleads for Michail Antonio


West Ham United star Aaron Cresswell believes they can ‘rectify’ their form with a win over Chelsea.

David Moyes’ side are winless in their last three games, but Creswell believes Michail Antonio and the rest of the offense can “fix that” against the league leaders.

West Ham climbed to third place when they beat Liverpool and were just three points behind Chelsea, but have since suffered back-to-back defeats to Man City and Wolves, then conceded a late equalizer against Brighton .

While the Irons are still in fourth place, they enter their enticing game against the Blues, live on talkSPORT, in poor form and although Cresswell has placed no expectations he believes a win over the team from Thomas Tuchel can restart their season.

“We don’t sit down and have no targets where we want to end up or something like that,” West Ham left-back said.

“Just because we lost a game against Man City and a draw against Brighton doesn’t mean that it doesn’t hamper our focus of what we want to do.

“We know that throughout the season, we were going to feel a little hungry.

“It’s up to us to rectify that and fix it and, like I said, certainly against Chelsea, what a way to do it and that’s what we’re aiming for.

“We want to get the most points from the games we play, whether it’s [against] the best team in the league or the worst team in the league, that’s our goal.

While the 31-year-old and his teammates believe they are capable of recording another famous victory against one of the best teams in the league, he is wary of the threat posed by the Blues.

“They are a fantastic team with Man City and Liverpool at the moment, they are all in good shape.

“There’s no reason we can’t give anyone a game in this division and we’ve certainly shown it sometimes and we want to show it again on Saturday.”

If Cresswell and his teammates are to achieve a famous victory, they should break through the tightest defense in the league and need their forwards to fire at full blast.

Their forehead has cooled in recent weeks, with center-forward Antonio missing in five Premier League games.

“It’s important, not just for Mic [Antonio], important for the whole team, certainly for the first four guys have missed it a bit lately, ”he added.

“It’s only a few games, I’m sure throughout the season each team will experience a little drop in form or certainly individual will.

“Look like I say, when and where to fix that against Chelsea in a London derby and that’s definitely what the guys will be looking to do I’m sure.”
