West Ham assistant manager Steve Clarke believes it is a 'good time' to be at Upton Park.

A goalless draw at Arsenal on Saturday ensured the Hammers are now six games unbeaten in the Premier League, much to the delight of Clarke.

West Ham were forced to defend for the duration at Emirates Stadium and Clarke, who moved to the club following the arrival of manager Gianfranco Zola in September, was delighted with his players' attitude.

"We are pleased to get a point. It is a very difficult place to come," Clarke told Sky Sports.

"We are on a good run and it was important to keep it going. We defended very well and worked as a team.

Negative

"Maybe the only negative was that we didn't pass the ball as well as we have been doing recently.

"The work ethic in the team is fantastic. They know what they are doing and what they are trying to do.

"We know what we are trying to achieve and all the players are on board. It is a good time for the club."

Meanwhile, Clarke is pleased West Ham have captured Radoslav Kovac on loan and expects the Spartak Moscow player to add vital qualities.

"He brings a bit of experience and a bit more depth," added Clarke.

"He can help us to develop the players. He can play in midfield or at the back so he is a good addition."
