Tomkins looking for West Ham to bounce back

West Ham defender James TomkinsJames Tomkins believes that West Ham must recover quickly from their Premier League defeat at the hands of Tottenham, as they prepare to face Manchester United this week.

The Hammers slipped to a 3-1 loss at White Hart Lane, missing their chance to move back in to the top six.

The young defender hopes that his team-mates can put the loss behind them and focus on their trip to Old Trafford:

“We didn’t play at our best but we need to put it behind us quite quickly because we have another big game at Manchester United in a couple of days’ time and the games are coming thick and fast.” He is quoted by SkySports.

“We don’t need to dwell on the result because we have the points on the board and it’s vital we go to Old Trafford with our confidence intact.

“We have to make sure we go to Manchester United 100% mentally.”

The East Londoners have been in fine form since their return to the top flight, notching impressive victories against the likes of Newcastle and Southampton in recent weeks.

Kevin Nolan has been key for Sam Allardyce’s men, linking well with summer arrival Andy Carroll and weighing in with some important strikes.
