Jose Fonte has encouraged his West Ham team-mates to work hard in order to win their next two matches to ensure Premier League survival for the club.
The Portugal international, who joined the club from Southampton in January, said, “Our aim is to win the next two matches, then we can start to look at things a little differently.
“You can’t take your foot off the gas in this league. It’s a tough league, the best in the world, and if you are not ‘at it’ every single game, you are not going to win.”
The Hammers ended a poor run of form, which included a run of five consecutive defeats by defeating Swansea 1-0 on Saturday. They currently occupy 14th spot on the League standings and are eight points clear of the relegation zone.
There is no doubt that the Hammers have a great opportunity to record back to back victories and ease the pressure on themselves as they play against bottom of the table Sunderland on Saturday.
