Jimmy Bullard suggested that he is really excited about West Ham this season, when speaking to Ian Abrahams via his official Instagram account, and singled out Sebastien Haller and Felipe Anderson for praise.

The Hammers have made a fine start to their Premier League campaign. They have taken eight points from their first five games. And are level on points with third placed Tottenham.

Manuel Pellegrini seems to have assembled a squad well capable of pushing for a top six finish this season.

West Ham just need to find a certain level of consistency to their play that wasn’t present last season.

Whatever happens, however, the Hammers fans will surely be in for a truly enthralling ride this term.

Bullard, a West Ham fan, explained why he is so excited about his team this season, when speaking to Ian Abrahams via his official Instagram account:

“We didn’t play as good as we have been [against Aston Villa], but I’m really excited. I haven’t been this excited as a West Ham fan, you know what we’ve been like. I like the boy up front (Sebastien Haller) really, really good. Anderson has been on fire. I like the way we look, I’m so excited.”

Bullard was a legend in his own right during his Premier League career. He was a top player, but he is arguably more known for his likeable, jovial character.

He began his career at Upton Park, in 1999, before moving on in 2001.

Next up for West Ham is a home game against Manchester United on Sunday. And it could be argued that Pellegrini’s men are favourites for the game.

A win could see them jump inside the top four.
