Zabaleta wants more from Hammers
West Ham should be higher in the table but will need to improve their level of consistency to move up, according to Pablo Zabaleta.
The Hammers got off to a disastrous start when losing their opening four games of the season, but have managed to turn things around somewhat with wins over Manchester United and Everton, with a draw against Chelsea sandwiched in between.
But following a 1-0 defeat against Brighton, Zabaleta is not happy and says there is plenty more to do if they are to get to where they want to be.
“We’ve got seven points and I would like the team to have at least 10 or 11 points by now because we could have got more from the Bournemouth, Wolves and Brighton games," he told the club's website.
“At the end of the day, those dropped points make the difference in the table as, if we had three or four more, we’d be a few places higher, six or seven points from the relegation zone and just three or four points from the European positions.
“OK, let’s say the situation is not a crisis but also it’s not perfect. The most important thing we can learn from those games is to understand that to become a better team we need to improve our consistency.”
