West Ham United attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini is hopeful about this side achieving some “very big things” in the present campaign.

The Hammers, who drew 2-2 with Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend, currently find themselves fifth in the standings with 50 points from 30 outings, just one behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

Slaven Bilic’s team have also managed to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, where they will face Manchester United in a replay.

And Lanzini, who will be joining West Ham permanently in the summer from Abu Dhabi outfit Al Jazira Club for an undisclosed fee, thinks his side will enjoy a successful season if they continue playing such as they have from the start of the 2015/16 campaign.

“Well, I certainly hope we can achieve some very big things”, he told the club’s official site.


“We’ve already done very well, and it’s already been a very good season, and when you’re so close to achieving your objectives, of course you want to keep dreaming.

“Of course, if we continue on the right path, we can certainly achieve what we want.”

West Ham will next face Crystal Palace in a home Premier League game after the ongoing international break on 2nd April.

The Upton Park outfit won the corresponding fixture 3-1 at Selhurst Park in October.
