West Ham striker Chicharito: 3 massive games this week

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez admits they're "fighting for our lives" ahead of three huge games.

The Hammers play against West Brom at the start of three huge New Year matches in six days.

David Moyes' side go to Wembley for a London derby with Tottenham on Thursday, before a potential FA Cup banana-skin away to League One promotion chasers Shrewsbury three days later.

“They are all very important games for the club," said Chicharito.

“First, we play West Brom and we are fighting for our lives so we want to get the three points.

“Then, we have a derby match — and it's a nice one, with Tottenham. The last time we went to Wembley, we were very happy with the result in the League Cup, coming back from 2-0 down to win 3-2, so we have good memories of playing against Spurs there.

“Then the week ends with the FA Cup, which is a competition I'd love to win."
