West Ham United vice captain says his side will ‘move forward’ following Tuesday nights exit and the hands of Arsenal.

The Hammers – who were playing the Gunners for the second time in a week – were knocked out at the quarter-finals stage by Arsene Wenger’s side.

A solitary goal from Danny Welbeck sealed a 1-0 victory for the home side, but despite the disappointment, Reid says things are still looking good for David Moyes’ side and they intend to continue their recent good this coming weekend.

“The positive from Tuesday is that we limited ’s chances,” he explained on “We kept hold of what we have been doing well in the last few games, which is filling areas in front of the box, getting men behind the ball, getting blocks in and making things difficult for the opposition.

“We do need to be better with the ball once we have it, and give the ball to each other in better situations, but we’ll take the positives from and move forward. We know what we need to work on.

“We wanted to do well at Arsenal, but our priority is the league and we need to get further up in the table and continue the that we’ve been in.

“We’ve got some important games coming up before the New Year and we need to focus 100 per cent on those.”
