West Ham United Sam Allardyce praises "exceptional" Ravel Morrison for the midfielder's impressive early form.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has hailed midfielder Ravel Morrison for his impressive start to the season.

The 20-year-old has forced his way into the Hammers' first team following his arrival from Manchester United in January 2012.

There were questions over the player's attitude during his time at Old Trafford due to off-field issues, but Allardyce is delighted to have Morrison at his disposal.

"Ravel's performances have been exceptional and if you're good enough, you're old enough," Allardyce said in a news conference.

Morrison has scored in each of his last two appearances for the Hammers.
