West Ham goalkeeper Adrian discussed Friday afternoon how his side are desperate to jumpstart their season across town at Crystal Palace.
The 29-year-old expressed to WHUFC.com about his optimism for their latest London derby on Saturday at Selhurst Park.
"We are hoping to get back to winning ways against Crystal Palace on Saturday," Adrian said. "We have been preparing for this game for a long time and we have spent a long time together over the national break."
The Spanish shot stopper has endured constant changes to his backline in the first seven games of the campaign due to the injury bug plaguing almost the entire squad since August. West Ham have conceded a Premier League high 17 goals so far this season, in large part because of those absences and alterations at the back.
But Adrian is confident that his side's fortunes will change this weekend.
"The players who were away on international duty are now back with the squad and we have enough time to prepare," he said. "We want the three points and a victory."
Left back Aaron Cresswell returned to full training this week, but his competition for the spot, Arthur Masuaku, is still out. Also unavailable once more for manager Slaven Bilic are forwards Andre Ayew, Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll.
