“He’s got a great build, his physique is good and his mobility is very good, he handled the ball really well, he knew when to drop back and make a fifth defender”, Quinn added.
Ramsey tested the West Ham goal once more with his drilled effort from just outside the area five minutes before the end of the first half, when Oxlade-Chamberlain was in space on the right side and was the better option. It always takes a while for new signings to gel, but they will need to do so quickly.
He helped inspire the east London side to a stunning 2-0 victory over rivals Arsenal at the Emirates on the opening day of the season.
“We now have a home game in front of our own fans and it is very important that we try and get another three points on Saturday”.
That said though, it would be unfair to put too much pressure on the young shoulders of Oxford and manager Slaven Bilic will certainly be acknowledging this fact.
“I felt we were a bit nervous and we rushed our game a bit”.
Wenger also said the Hammers were better prepared for the game, having been playing competitive football for over a month in the Europa League.
“I haven’t seen De Gea in training but it was Van Gaal’s decision, I think De Gea wants to finish his bad situation – whether that is with Real Madrid or still at Manchester United”.
Cech endured a home debut to forget Sunday, as his goalkeeping errors consigned Arsenal to a 2-0 loss to West Ham.
“It’s a massive loss for us because we had great confidence and now it’s time for us to settle down, stay healthy and look forward to next Sunday”. “A successful season is how you respond to disappointments and it’s never a clear motorway”.
One of the keys to West Ham’s victory was the remarkably mature Premier League debut of 16-year-old Reece Oxford, who shone in a midfield holding role just weeks after the Londoner became the club’s youngster ever player. “Today we have to look at ourselves and think we were not good enough and not to think that these kinds of things are solutions for us”.
“He’s definitely going to be a big player”.
