Among a number of impressive performers, Manuel Lanzini has been right up there for West Ham so far this season.

The 26-year-old has continued his majestic pre-season form with stellar performances in the Premier League, thus far providing two assists in the four games he has played.

And now that the Argentina international has fully recovered from his ACL injury that ruled him out for nine months last season and looks as sharp as ever.

After claiming seven points in the month of August, West Ham fans have plenty of reason for excitement.

Considering that after four games last year, the Hammers had no points, it really shows the improvements Manuel Pellegrini has made.

Manuel Lanzini is also sensing the optimism as well, when speaking to about his desire to ‘win a trophy’ with West Ham.

“Why not? It’s difficult, but why not? Leicester won the Premier League two or three years ago. It’s difficult, but we need to believe.”

But whether it’s a trophy or striving for a place in Europe, Lanzini doesn’t seem too picky.

“Of course (we want to challenge for a top-six finish)!

“It is the ambition of all of us and the club, but we must work hard because every team wants this and the Premier League is hard, but we need believe in ourselves and we can achieve this.”

It’s fair to say that West Ham fans are loving Lanzini’s determination and have responded in their numbers on Twitter…
