Alex Song hails West Ham United spirit

Alex Song lifts the lid on the secret of West Ham's early-season form and reveals that a strong team spirit has buoyed the Hammers so far.

Alex Song has hailed the team spirit flowing through the West Ham United side following their solid early-season form.

The Hammers stunned Premier League champions Manchester City with a 2-1 win at Upton Park on Saturday to stay fourth in the table.

Sam Allardyce's side have now won four of their last five games, and Song, who was named man of the match in the win over City, cites a togetherness within the squad as the primary factor in their recent wins.

"The key to the win on Saturday was team spirit. We attack together, we defend together and at the moment we are playing great football," he told Sky Sports News.

"All the boys together are happy. We enjoy training together and that is why it is easier to play when you come to the pitch.

"Now we have to continue to improve game by game."

West Ham face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
