Hammers riding high in the table this season.
Andy Carroll has said there is belief in the West Ham squad that they can qualify for European football next season after the London side smashed Hull City 3-0 on Sunday.
Sam Allardyce’s side eased to a comfortable victory over the Tigers with goals from Carroll, Morgan Amalfitano and Stewart Downing.
The win took the Hammers up to seventh in the table and stopped a miserable run of form which saw the Londoners win for the first time in the League since 20th of December.
Carroll’s goal helped his side overtake former side Liverpool and the former Anfield man says his current side are now definitely in contention for Europe.
“There’s a belief in the dressing room, I don’t see why not. We haven’t had a win in the last few games but we’ve had the performances that can take us up to the top,” he said.
Both sides struggled in the first half and went into the break level before Carroll broke the deadlock. Another former Liverpool man, Stewart Downing, stating his side put in an impressive display.
“We just moved the ball quicker in the second half – in the first half we didn’t do it quick enough and we made it easy for Hull who had a lot of men behind the ball,” he said reports London Evening Standard.
“In the second half we were making a lot of good runs and getting men in the box, so it was a much better performance.”
