Manuel Lanzini says he is confident West Ham will turn things around and avoid relegation from the Premier League 

The Hammers were beaten 4-1 by Swansea on Saturday, a result that leaves them in danger just three points above the Premier League relegation zone.

Lanzini, who recently returned from a hamstring injury, says the West Ham players are working hard to rectify the situation but must win all their remaining games to stay up.

Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, the Argentina international said: "I'm really looking forward to changing the situation we're in.

West Ham defender Winston Reid will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury he picked up in the 4-1 defeat to Swansea last weekend

"It always takes time to come back from an injury but I'm doing my best to get back to 100 per cent now.

"The team didn't perform as well as they could and it is never nice to lose in a match, we're sad when we lose a match but we are really trying to turn things around and we believe we can."

West Ham face Burnley on Saturday, and have a three-week break before returning to face Southampton on March 31 at the London Stadium.
