West Ham United striker Wellington Paulista is pushing to make a first team breakthrough.

Paulista is on-loan from Cruzeiro.

"I'm taking it day by day, trying to get better every day and hoping to break into the first team," he told West Ham TV, with the help of his Spanish-speaking colleague Sebastian Lletget.

"Whether I score or not, I'm confident either way. I'm always trying to bring other players into the game and trying to be more versatile in that sense. I'm doing a lot in training, just to get in the manager's eye and hopefully to get into the team.

"I'm very happy [to see the first-team doing well] but I obviously want to be a part of it. I'll be working hard right until the end of my six-month deal and I'd like to stay here if I can."
