Arnautovic expects Hammers’ progress
Marko Arnautovic wants West Ham to aim higher after they achieved just their second top-half Premier League finish in six years.
The Hammers secured 10th spot by leapfrogging their hosts courtesy of a comfortable 4-1 victory against Watford at Vicarage Road on Sunday.
Having battled against relegation for much of last season, West Ham returned to the top half under Manuel Pellegrini but Arnautovic, whose future remains uncertain, believes they can do even better next year.
‘Every year we want to improve and we want to do better and obviously we want to always be in the top half of the table,’ he told whufc.com.
‘But I think it’s not our target to be 10th but to be much higher.
We played some good football.
All through the season we had some brilliant games and we had some bad games.
‘We need to look at the good games and to train and learn from the good games because we are a very good side and we have very good players.
‘We missed some of those games against the teams around us and lost those games and next year we want to win them and finish higher next season.’
