West Ham striker Javier Hernandez thinks that The Hammers can reach the Top Four of the Premier League this season. West Ham were struggling against relegation for almost the first half of the 2017-18 season. This resulted in Slaven Bilic getting the sack. However, new manager David Moyes guided the club to a 13th place finish. Moyes has been replaced by Premier League-winning Manuel Pellegrini. Javier Hernandez thinks the former Man City coach can guide the club to the Champions League.
The Mexican told the club’s website regarding their goals this season, “Top six, top four is the aim, as high as we can. I’m a dreamer. I am always aiming as high as I can and if we can put West Ham in the Champions League, why not? ”
Hernandez did not have a very good 2017-18 season with the club. However, he seemed positive and said that Pellegrini encouraged him. Chicharito said, “The manager called me before the World Cup because he knew my situation was difficult at the end of last season, and he made me feel very good. He told me I was going to be an important player and would play an important role in this team, so he gave me a lot of confidence. I’m very motivated and I know I need to work hard to win a place in the starting line-up and then perform as well as I can to help the team with goals, assists and good performances to get the points to move up the table.”
West Ham have made some pretty decent signings this summer. These include Lukasz Fabianski, Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko. The club also had a pretty good pre-season tour where they won five matches out of seven. The Hammers begin their Premier League campaign against Liverpool on Sunday.
