With a three-goal away victory over Leicester City, West Ham United successfully completed a winning streak and scored 7 goals in two games without conceding a goal. After the game, acting coach Irvine attended the press conference.
I think this game is almost perfect for us. It is difficult for us to pick out some shortcomings for ourselves from such a game. I am very satisfied with the team's performance throughout the game. In the game, we performed very well regardless of whether we had the ball or not. We executed the tactical arrangement very completely, and the players echoed each other. I am satisfied with all the content of today's game.
Before the game against Wolves, someone asked me how long I personally experienced the longest invincible at the beginning of the season. The implication is that our schedule is very difficult. But now, we have won two games in a row and are facing very strong opponents. I hope we can keep on.
The team is in good shape now, but in the next period of time we hope that the injured can recover as soon as possible and that the players participating in the national team will also remain healthy.
The key to victory in this game is defense. We did not lose the ball or even give the opponent a chance to shoot. This depends on our defensive organization. The players have always been vigilant, because everyone knows the superior ability of the opponent's offensive players.
Our defense was a problem last season. I want to reiterate that the team ranked 8th in goals scored, but ranked 3rd in conceded goals. It is not easy to score a goal in this level of competition, so you cannot easily concede.
His debut was better than I thought. It is not easy to do this. After all, he has only practiced with the team twice and does not have much time to understand his teammates. But soon, he knew what the team wanted him to bring, and he fully demonstrated his rich experience and understanding of the game.
He was in full form at the end of last season. We especially hope that he can maintain his form until this season. Obviously he did. He can pose a huge threat to the opponent on the front line and is our very key player.
It is good to enter the offseason with this state, we can enjoy some relaxing time, which is very rare. The ranking of the team is good, but we also hope to go further.
