West Ham United full-back Alvaro Arbeloa, has stated that he is looking to help his Hammers team-mates, and coach Slaven Bilic, ahead of a tough run of games.
Looking to help the team
The Spaniard has been kept out the side in recent weeks, with Bilic's switch to a 3-4-3 system involving wing-backs. The Hammers face a tough run of games with this weekend's clash with Tottenham Hotspur, followed by Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool in the coming weeks, and the 33-year-old has said he will be ready to be involved.
“I want to help my team-mates," Arbeloa told whufc.com. "The coach and I am giving my best in every training session."
“Hopefully I will get the chance to play soon," he stated. “The most important thing is we need the points and we need to win games."
The Spaniard added: "We now have five very tough games but all of us believe we can win games and that is the most important thing."
Got a good squad
Arbeloa is one of the most decorated defenders in recent times, especially with his national side Spain, with Arbeloa been a part of that excellent side which won the World Cup and two European Championships.
The Spanish were in London this week to take on Gareth Southgate's England. The match saw a boost for West Ham with Aaron Cresswell's debut, the match ended 2-2 and Arbeloa was impressed with what he saw from the Three Lions.
“England have a very good squad and I think they could do very well in the next World Cup," Arbeloa proclaimed. “England made a lot of changes in the second half and Spain obviously scored two goals right at the end but I still thought England played really well."
He concluded: “Of course I miss being there because I have great memories with the national team, but I am now supporting them.”
West Ham United will take on Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Saturday, November 19 with kick-off at 5:30pm BST.
