Barrera confident of good result

BY foxsports • November 18, 2010

The Hammers have secured only one win from their 13 games, and the Upton Park faithful were left frustrated following successive draws against West Brom and Blackpool last week. Under-fire manager Avram Grant continues, for now at least, to have the full support of the board and insists the results which his team's performances merit will come. Barrera was one player guilty of missing a golden chance to break the deadlock against Blackpool on Saturday, shooting straight at the keeper from 12 yards. However, the summer signing is optimistic the Hammers' fortunes will soon turn as they go in search of a first victory at Anfield in almost half a century. "It will be a very difficult match, but we need to start winning," Barrera said. "The team is playing well despite being frustrated by the results in the recent matches. "We have a great chance to get something from Liverpool." Barrera added on the club's official website: "Against Blackpool, we should have won the match. In general the team played very well. We created a lot of chances, but we didn't score. "We just need to keep working to come out from this period, because I believe that we've got quality in the squad to do it. "Of course mentally we are not in our best moment because we have not been winning. "However, the team is playing well, so we just need a little bit extra to turn draws into wins." Barrera, 23, joined the Hammers in a £4million deal in July from Mexico City Pumas, having caught the eye at the World Cup. The pacy winger has since made nine appearances in the Premier League, and insists there is more to come. "Step by step I am getting used to English football," he said. "The Premier League requires players to have a very good physical condition, but that's something that I will reach by working hard. "I am feeling better match after match. "I came here to do things well and to help the team, so that's something I am really focused on. "It is beautiful to have a chance to play in the best league in the world and for a club like West Ham."
