There's big hopes the fit-again German can help lift the Hammers up the table.
Asked whether he felt under unfair pressure to turn West Ham's dismal season round, Hitzlsperger replied: "It's not unfair. That's what they're hoping for. But you know what it's like – one player just can't do it on his own. I think [against Burnley it] was a good team performance. I'm delighted that I came in there, had a good game and that we won the game easily.
"Hopefully we can transform it and take it to the next game, Liverpool, and until the end of the season because we're desperate for good games and especially for good results."
