Fit, happy and scoring goals

Man of the Match Marko Arnautovic says he thoroughly enjoyed Saturday's "brilliant" win over Southampton.

The Hammers moved five points clear of the relegation zone courtesy of the 3-0 win, in which the Austrian international netted twice before celebrating in the direction of Saints boss Mark Hughes.

And according to Arnautovic the three points gained will ease the pressure on the team considerably going into this weekend's London derby at Chelsea, who were beaten at home by Spurs in another big all-London affair at the weekend.

"We did a great job and played a brilliant game," a delighted Arnautovic told whufc.com. "We can enjoy that now, but on Monday we will be focused on the next game at Chelsea.

"I always enjoy it when I am on the pitch, but obviously we enjoyed Saturday. Not only the players, but the fans, everyone. I have to come off the pitch and be able to say to myself Iíve done everything. If we win, itís brilliant.

"Iím fit and I try to do my best in every season. When I score some goals, everybody says Ďis this your best year?í I try to do my best every week and if itís working, itís working."

Arnautovic's brace against Southampton takes him to nine goals for the season, from 31 appearances - a tally that makes his the club's leading goalscorer currently, two ahead of Javier Hernandez with seven.
