The Hammers have flown out of the traps on their return to the top flight and currently sit eighth in the table with over a quarter of the season already played.

Sam Allardyce's side face a tough run of fixtures between now and the new year, meeting Newcastle, Manchester United, Chelsea, Everton and Arsenal before January.

But following the performance in the 0-0 draw against City, Jarvis reckons West Ham can look forward to a number of difficult tests.

"We have a tough run coming up but this will give us a fantastic boost," he said.

"I think it shows we can hold our own against sides like this and, at the same time, try to get something out of the game for ourselves.

"We defended well and like to think we stopped them playing how they can, rather than it being a poor display from City.

"We go to Newcastle now with the same appetite to get something from that game as well, to keep our good start to the season on track."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
