In-form forward Marko Arnautovic took the plaudits after playing a big part in West Ham claiming a convincing 4-1 victory at Huddersfield Town.
The Austria international has scored six goals in his last seven appearance in the Premier League, helping the Hammers put together a run of five games unbeaten which has seen them rise to 11th place in the able – five points above the relegation zone.
And boss David Moyes believes that the big-money summer recruit from Stoke City is enjoyed himself due to a change of role in the set-up of the Irons side.
He told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased with Marko. Everybody told me he hadn't performed before I came, but everybody knew how good he was at Stoke City and that's why we paid a big fee for him.
"Giving him a freer role up front has given him a chance to show other sides to his game as well, with the effort and the way he has worked."
The Hammers are now 14/1 to be relegated this season, while they are 1/10 to avoid the drop and 10/3 to finish in the top half of the table.
Meanwhile, Moyes also admitted that he would like to add to his options before the transfer window slams shut, adding: "The board know and they want to add a few players – it's just the difficulty of the month. We want to add players if that is possible."
