West Ham midfielder Matt Jarvis is hoping Tuesday’s Premier League meeting with struggling West Brom will provide another opportunity to extend their positive start.

The Hammers sit fifth in the league after their opening 13 games after a number of fresh faces were added to the squad over the summer to help take the club in a different direction.

Boss Sam Allardyce was a man under pressure at the end of the last campaign but he has dramatically changed the style of play and got the fans back on board.

Since beating Manchester City at the end of October, the east Londoners have dropped points against Stoke, Aston Villa and Everton, but the side got back to winning ways last time out against Newcastle.

Aaron Cresswell bagged the only goal in the 1-0 win at Upton Park on Saturday and Jarvis believes it has helped to restore some confidence throughout the squad.

Allardyce’s side now travel to the Hawthorns and Jarvis hopes they will be able to add further points to their tally.

Jarvis said: “The Hawthorns is a tough place to go to, every single game is tough.

“We’ll go there in good spirits having recovered from the game on Saturday, making sure we put in a good performance and try to get the points.

“It was fantastic to get back to winning ways at the weekend. Newcastle were on such a good run of form, so it was great to get back in front of our home fans and win.”

The Baggies can be backed at 2.47 to win at home on Tuesday with West Ham priced at 2.94 to claim the victory.
