West Ham United are currently in the second spot of the ongoing English Premier League (EPL) 2023/24 season, courtesy of an unbeaten start. In three matches, they have gained seven points with two wins and one draw. Now, they are looking to continue that momentum against Luton Town on 2 September.
Ahead of this clash, the Hammers’ first signing of this transfer window, Edson Alvarez opened up on bringing a fresh mentality within the team. West Ham signed the Mexico midfielder from Ajax on a five-year deal for a transfer fee of €38 million ($41.90m), which could increase to €41m with add-ons.
“My new teammates are all good guys.” – Edson Alvarez
While exclusively speaking to Sky Sports, Alvarez said: “It’s a nice start for everyone, especially for me because I made a dream debut in our stadium and with our fans against a very good team in Chelsea. Then there was the second game away against Brighton and in history it’s been very difficult for us there, but we got the three points and so far, I feel really happy and I’m grateful for everything.”
“With James [Ward-Prowse], we communicate really well. We are both new here and we want to bring a fresh mentality to the club. My new teammates are all good guys. They have helped me with everything from the first day I arrived at the club. I’m very happy with everyone and looking forward to creating the best team we can for West Ham. At the end, we all want to fight for our fans and also the top spots in the Premier League,” he further added.
“Winning gives you confidence. It’s a good feeling and two wins against two good teams brings extra motivation. We are continuing to look forward because we don’t just want a short period of winning and a short time at the top. We want to keep this feeling for many more games. I want to keep doing good things and it is a matter of time and work. If you train how you play, you’ll get results,” Edson Alvarez concluded.
