West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass insists that the biggest thing for him is to try and get into the team, contributing and showing why the club bought him in the first place.

The 31-year-old spent last season on loan at Aston Villa after being told that he was free to leave the club either on loan or on a permanent basis, in spite of joining in January 2017.

Snodgrass though returned from his loan spell at the Championship club and has since proven his mettle, starting in eleven of the team's 17 league games.

He has also been a contributor with goals, adding four and has set up seven more for his team-mates.

Snodgrass on his part insists that even getting into the first-team and staying there is a big achievement for him, and he wants to cement his place in the starting eleven for Manuel Pellegrini's side.

“For me, the biggest thing is trying to get into the team, and then from there kicking on, contributing and showing why West Ham bought me in the first place", Snodgrass told his club's official website.

“I think I’m doing that and I’m working hard to continue to do that.

"For me I want to bring goals and assists, and that’s what I’m trying to do.

"I want to help the forwards and long may it continue.”

Snodgrass has so far made 19 appearances this season for West Ham.
