Schlupp: We Need To Make Home Advantage Count

28 October 2017

Jeffrey Schlupp believes that the side will be able to take the positives from their last two league games into today’s match against West Ham United.

A fortnight ago the side recorded their win against Chelsea and even in defeat seven days ago at Newcastle he believes that the performance deserved more.

“We have done well in our last two games and we have been able to take the positives.

“We have gone back to basics and worked really hard with us all working on our game plan.

“Every game at this level is big and because we are playing a team that is in and around us it is a massive match. From our point of view we have the same focus each week to be going out to win the contest and continue on from the last home game against Chelsea.”

West Ham United come to Selhurst on the back of their comeback in midweek against Tottenham to win 3-2 in the Carabao Cup and the Eagles defender believes this shows how you never know what is going to happen when two top flight clubs meet.

“Who would have thought we would have played the way we did against Chelsea and get such a good win. Everyone knows anything can happen in the league, we will obviously be going out to give 100% like we always do and we know our fans will be creating a great atmosphere as it always is which will be important to give us an extra push on the day.

“We would like to think we will match up well against them, we are at home so we need to take that advantage and show the determination we have in the dressing room to make sure we get the result that we are all looking for.”

Many of the squad involved in that victory against Chelsea reflected on the role that the home fans played that afternoon to get the result over the line.

“This game is a big one for both clubs but we are looking to go all out to get the three points in front of our fans who have always been the 12th man for us and this weekend will be no different i'm sure.”
