West Ham fullback Aaron Cresswell was delighted to be back for victory over Norwich City this week.
Cresswell featured in his first match since the end of November against the Canaries on Wednesday, having recovered from a back injury suffered colliding with the goalpost at Manchester City, helping his side to secure a deserved 2-0 victory to return to the Premier League’s top four.
“It’s amazing to be back,” the fullback told West Ham TV. “To miss the whole of December, which is the busiest period of the entire season, I was a little bit disappointed in the way that a small injury did that.
“But it’s great to be back and to get a clean-sheet and three points, you can’t ask for much more.
“It was obviously a massive result that we needed to keep us in there, up high in the league. I thought we played some really good stuff at times against Norwich.
“It was a little bit sloppy in spells in the first half, but I thought we were fully in control of the game and, on another night, could have scored four or maybe five.”
