Joe Cole says that he feels "21 again" after his good start to his second spell at West Ham United.

West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole has revealed that he feels "21 again" after his fine start to his second Hammers career.

The midfielder earned two assists on his second debut against Manchester United, and scored the equaliser in his side's 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Despite being 31, Cole is adamant that his age has no impact on his current form for the Londoners.

"I don't think about age," Cole said. "I still feel 21. I just want to play football and enjoy myself.

"It's always nice to score a goal. I'm enjoying my football, I feel I'm getting stronger. You need to get match-hardened. You can do as much training in the world but you need games. I feel I'm getting a bit stronger ever game and it's nice to be affecting the game."

West Ham travel to Arsenal in their next match on Wednesday.
