Aaron Cresswell does not want West Ham to settle for any position in the Premier League table and wants the team to continue to push for the rest of the season. The Hammers are currently sixth in the table after Chelsea and Everton won their games last night. A win against Leeds on Monday will put the Irons straight back in contention.

"“There are obviously 12 games to go and to be in this position is massive for us, but we don’t want to be happy with where we are. We want to try and go as high as possible and we’re going to give it everything we’ve got from now until the end of the season”Cresswell on the rest of the season"

The left-back has been vital to the club’s success this season, assisting six goals in his 26 appearances. Last season there were question marks over Cresswell. Now the defender has established himself as one of the important squad members, playing every minute of the Premier League season so far.

Cresswell had started the season as part of back five, laying just inside from Arthur Masuaku, who played in the left-wing-back role. The duo had formed a solid partnership which was amazing considering both of their inconsistencies last season. After Masuaku’s injury, Cresswell returned to a traditional left-back and has looked back to his best.

"“All of them are massive games, really, If we can beat those teams – Leeds, Man United and Arsenal – it will really set us up for a good run in.”“If we can give everything we’ve got between now and the end of the season, I don’t see any reason why we certainly can’t be up there and that’s what we’re aiming for.”Cresswell told West Ham media"

There are 12 games left of the season, and there is no reason why West Ham can’t make something special happen this season. The last time there was this much hope around the club was the final season at the Boleyn Ground. Slaven Bilic’s side finished with 62 points that season but were in the Champions League conversation for the final three games.

Beating that points tally should be a minimum requirement for Moyes side this season. If the club are able to reach 65 points, then they will be in with an excellent shout to at least qualify for the Europa League group stages next season.
