Hammers´ Jarvis aiming high with Carroll

4 April 2013 04:52

West Ham winger Matt Jarvis is enjoying playing out wide with players such as Andy Carroll to aim for.

The former Wolves man put in an impressive performance on the left of midfield during the 3-1 win over West Brom on Saturday, and he is delighted to have team-mates desperately trying to get on the end of his crosses.

Jarvis has not been at his best for most of the season, scoring just one goal and laying on no assists in 25 league appearances, but he feels he was close to his best on Saturday.

"You know you can always put a ball in, just stand it up, or whip it across and there's always going to be someone there that's dying to get on the end of it," Jarvis told the club's official website.

"That's what I enjoy doing. Getting the ball, running at players, putting in crosses and hopefully getting a few shots in myself.

"I got a lot of the ball in the first half and maybe didn't get quite enough of it in the second, but overall I'm pleased with my performance."

Jarvis also had kind words for midfielder Gary O'Neil following the win, and he believes the former Middlesbrough man has been in good form for a while now.

"Gary O'Neil has been fantastic the last few weeks," he added.

"He puts in such a shift and doesn't get the praise he deserves.

"The first goal's typical Andy, that's him, getting in the box, getting his head on it. The second one was a great strike. Technically, it's probably up there with the hardest things in football and he nailed it."

The win over West Brom represented their seventh victory at Upton Park this season, and Jarvis feels it was important to keep up their decent record at home with away matches always tough outings.

He continued: "We've always played well at home this season. We came flying out of the blocks, got our lead and managed to hold onto it. It's a massive boost to get a win, especially in front of the crowd and hopefully that can move us on.

"You don't get any easy games and away to Liverpool will be extremely hard but we're full of confidence after Saturday. Let's not talk about (the club's record at Anfield), but if we can go there and get a result, it would be a fantastic achievement."
