West Ham United forward Andre Ayew is cautioning  against getting carried away by the Hammers’ potential ahead of the start of the English Premier League this weekend.

Slaven Bilic’s men travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the first of their opening three away fixtures in the upcoming season.

Expectations have sky-rocked so quickly after the Hammers signed four experienced players including ex-Man United star Chicharito.

But the Ghanaian is urging for a calm head, urging his teammates to measure the expectation of the fans.

“I think we have the squad, the players and the quality to be able to do something good, but I think a lot of other teams also have great players and great squads, so we need to be calm and work hard,” he told the club’s official website.

“We know what we want and the gaffer [Slaven Bilic] has given his directions and we are following them. It’s only with time and games that you can start to feel what you can do.

“Last season, I wouldn’t say it was a bad season but we had a lot of ups and downs and we only finished one point away from eighth position. We need to work hard, stay calm and have the belief that we can do something great.”

Ayew endured a frustrating debut campaign last season largely due to injury but appears to be in top shape.
