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."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
