West Ham boss Pellegrini: Greater unity this season

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini says there's greater unity inside the club this season.

West Ham sit fifth in the table after seven games ahead of Saturday's visit of Crystal Palace.

Pellegrini said, "There is a lot of difference between last season and this season. Now when you go into the London Stadium you feel we are all together.

"We can be a big team also and we need to continue improving.

"I always believe. You must have a mentality that reflects the attempt to do it [reach Europe].

"In the way we are playing, we are improving a lot, and that is one of the reasons we believe we can do it.

"Seeing the way we played away to Bournemouth, we tried to win the game from the first minute and I think we are in the correct way.

"One of the things we are also talking about with the players is the next game. It isn't a good thing to be thinking about what will happen in May."
