Cole gave the Hammers the lead against high-flying Arsenal early in the second half on Boxing Day, only for the Gunners to turn things around, and earn the three points they needed to return to the Premier League summit.

Cole, who had a glorious chance to double his side's lead soon after breaking the deadlock, is not concerned with personal gain however, highlighting the importance of getting the victories the team need.

"All I care about is winning," he told the club's official website.

"I don't look at those sort of stats I just want to win games.

"Next time we go out on that field if I'm starting, I just want to win that game."

The defeat at Upton Park meant the Hammers slipped into the relegation zone, and after a return of just one point in their last league five outings, the pressure is mounting on boss Sam Allardyce.

However, after a vastly improved attacking performance against Arsene Wenger's men, Cole believes there are positives to take into their clash with West Brom on Saturday.

"If we play like that against West Brom then I think we've got a chance of coming away with a better result than that," he added.

"We did the best we could with our resources but we just have to take the positives out of the game."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

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.
