Man Utd keeper Lindegaard impressed by West Ham

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard admires the way West Ham United have returned to the Premier League.

The Hammers have earned a place in the top half of the table on merit, by deploying an efficient, dynamic midfield and by looking to the wings to deliver the ball into the box.

"West Ham are playing towards percentages," Lindegaard told manutd.com, "and it's a clever way of handling it in their first season after coming back up. They know if they put so many crosses into the box they are going to score so many goals. I imagine coming up as West Ham did from [the Championship], the first year is all just about survival, then you can build on it. I can understand why they've had success with their style and you have to respect that."
