Let's go and do it again, says Snodgrass

Robert Snodgrass says he is looking forward to continuing West Ham's tradition of upsetting the big guns when Premier League leaders Liverpool visit Stratford tonight.

The West Ham wide man knows that he and his team mates need to put on a decent performance following three successive defeats, including the embarrassing FA Cup defeat at Wimbledon plus reversals at Bournemouth and, most recently, Wolves.

And the Scottish international insisted that Manuel Pellegrini's squad are fully prepped and determined to put on a show for the 60,000 fans set to descend upon the Olympic Stadium tonight.

"You approach the match believing you can win it," Snodgrass told whufc.com. "It's the same with every game - and that comes down to believing you are a big team and having the mentality to be a big team.

"We are playing against a big team at the top of the league who are flying high and haven't dropped many points. But it's one where we can get right back on track and can show the fans that we are working hard behind the scenes.

"We've had some good moments at the London Stadium this season against big teams. It will be no different come Monday and hopefully we'll be back to our best and get a good result."

Having been dumped out of both Cup competitions this season, all that West Ham have to work towards for the remainder of the season is a top-half Premier League placing - despite having fallen to 12th following a disappointing recent run of form.

However with seventh place still likely to be a gateway into Europe, Snodgrass believes that the 2018/19 season remains very much alive.

"We take each game as it comes," he added. "That's the most important thing for us. If seventh place comes, it comes. We need to keep progressing and trying to win games.

"In this league and in the Cups, you get what you put in and we haven't been at the races in the last three or four weeks. As a team we need to put words into actions and try and get the result come Monday."
