West Ham winger Sofiane Feghouli has pledged to redouble his efforts to help the Hammers out of a five-game losing streak in the Premier League.

The international break means Slaven Bilic’s side are without a game this weekend and the Algeria attacker has plenty of time to dwell on a recent run of poor form as his home nation are without a game. The slump has seen West Ham drop to 12th in the top flight table.

But Feghouli believes that Bilic and his charges can turn around their form and they get the chance to do so when they travel to Hull City on April 1.

Feghouli said: “I don’t like losing. Every morning I wake up to go to training to win and that’s what I think being a professional is about. We haven’t won in our last five games now, so we really need to work on becoming more consistent.

“There’s plenty of room for progress in this team. It’s down to all of us and the staff to do better. We haven’t won recent games due to fine margins. We also need to improve defensively because we’ve been conceding too many goals. Our target is to finish in the top-half and to entertain our supporters.”

Feghouli moved to the London Stadium from La Liga giants Valencia on a free transfer last summer, signing a three-year deal on wages reported as £65,000-a-week. And the nimble-footed flyer doesn’t mind admitting that he has taken time to adjust to the Premier League.

He added: “It’s been a radical change in footballing terms. In Spain, the game is more about possession, technique and strategy, whereas football here is more direct. It’s a big change, but as I said, I’m happy with my statistics so far – two goals and three assists in not many games. I’m gradually settling in.”
