Reid: Only West Ham players can dig ourselves out of this

West Ham defender Winston Reid says the players need to "dig deep" after defeat at home to Southampton.

The Hammers' indifferent start to 2016/17 continued with a deserved defeat at London Stadium, where the Saints secured victory through goals from Charlie Austin, Dusan Tadic and substitute James Ward-Prowse.

“When you lose you, you can always do more," Reid told whufc.com. “We've played against good teams so far and we need to work a lot harder to get a bit of luck on our side.

“You could see out there that they worked harder than us and they got a good result."

So, Reid was asked, what do West Ham need to do to turn around their alarming run of form and start climbing the Premier League table?

“To get our confidence back, we need to work hard," he explained. “We need to dig deep and work a lot harder.

“We're six games in and we've only got three points, so we need to dig deeper, produce a better performance and get a win.

“The most important thing for us now is picking up that next three points."
