West Ham defender Ogbonna eager to snap form slump against Everton

West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna is eager to snap their form slump against Everton.

The Hammers are without a victory in their last three matches in all competitions, including disappointing defeats at the hands of Oxford United in the Carabao Cup and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

“I am looking forward to this game, but every game in the Premier League can see your fortunes change, and games like this, like Burnley away, like Crystal Palace, like Brighton away, are tough games," he told whufc.com.

“They will prepare for us and sometimes you have to wear the armour to keep your place in the table.

“For us, it is a good chance to step up, but it will not be easy and just because we talk, it does not mean things will happen. We have to wait, find our place and then take our chance."

He added: “They have good attacking players like Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alex Iwobi, [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and a young player I heard a lot about when I was in Juventus and he was in the Academy, Moise Kean, who has a lot of skills and is very strong. But we just have to focus on our jobs and getting the three points."
